The museum is located in the basement of a modern office building, which is easy to miss as there’s only a poster on the wall giving away it’s whereabouts.

For over 20 years, the Miniatures Museum of Taiwan has been collecting these miniature works of art from across the globe, with large proportion originating from Europe.

Some of the best and most detailed pieces are the Through-the-window scenes. A voyeuristic peek into the lives of others.

The level of detail on everything is staggering. The furnishings, the working lights, and most impressively, even the postage-stamp sized paintings have been expertly hand painted.

You can barely even tell just by looking at some the pictures that they are in fact tiny versions.

The majority of the exhibits here are of Buildings, from Tudor and Victorian English architecture, right through to castles and ruins of ancient Rome.

Almost all of the pieces here are of a scale of 1:12.

Fantasy and Fairy Tales are well catered for, with Pinocchio, Jack and the Beanstalk and fantastical scenes with dinosaurs.

There’s also a section devoted to dolls and toys, including toy cars. Maybe not strictly miniatures, but impressive nevertheless.

You can even purchase miniature bottles of booze from the museum’s gift shop!
