Outstanding collection of scale miniatures
By A Yahoo Contributor, 12/1/07
This collection of scale miniatures is very well displayed -- a real find! We were on a walking tour of Lyon, off the Hotel barge Libellule, and happened upon it. I had only an hour and was amazed to find 3 floors of miniatures displayed - my favorite rooms boxes were the Rock Band Stage with instruments, the fish market, Turkish Bath and Maxim's Restaurant. While I was engrossed in this museum, my husband bought a small shadowbox with miniature scene at the Sunday Art Market nearby. I have been a member of the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (USA)for over 25 years, and I think this collection and display are excellent examples of scale miniatures.
This was a very interesting experience. Basically it's a bunch of minature stuff. We had a great time but it wasn't what I really expected. I wouldn't recommend it if you're on a limited budget like we were.
