Miniatures Museum of Taiwan

When Rich and I were still living in the hostel (we have an apartment now - yah!) we were very near the miniatures museum of Taiwan so we decided to check it out one day before I went to work.

It's a pretty cool little museum with all sorts of things - like robots, barbies and faberge eggs (I always wanted a real faberge egg).
But the main event is, of course, the miniatures - I hadn't really thought about making miniatures as a form of art or craft before but these were simply incredible. The thought, planning and hard work that must have gone into making these miniatures is pretty inspiring.

I especially love the Japanese town with Cherry Blossom's and movie posters - it's pretty amazing.Finally, they had these cute little husky characters at the museum - I'm not actually sure why? They must be some kind of popular characters here (I've actually seen a lot of people with pet husky dogs - despite the hot temperatures) - I just thought they were kind of cute.
