The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is a 501(c)(3) board-only nonprofit organization, classified as a private foundation with a long-term goal of achieving public charity status. All proceeds from every sale, including admission, membership and merchandise go towards funding the museum’s operations and helping us pursue our mission to preserve and advance the art of miniatures.


What Does the Future Look Like?

IT’S BRIGHT – with plans for frequent temporary exhibits of miniatures that represent diverse cultures, art forms, occupations, hobbies and unusual interests.

IT’S WIDE OPEN – with free field trips, including bus transportation grants, for area schools and home schools.

IT’S MEMORABLE – with traditions like May Day and Wee Winter Wonderland becoming treasured family experiences that welcome you each season.

Most important, your donation today will help us protect and preserve the extraordinary collection of The Mini Time Machine Museum. It will provide excellent education programs for children and adults. And it will kindle the magical spark that makes each day brighter for so many museum visitors, like you.
