A museum originally located in a small farmhouse on the Gilmore Car Museum property in Hickory Corners soon will reopen its doors in Grand Haven.
The Grand Haven Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting for the Midwest Miniatures Museum (MMM) on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at its new home on 20 S. Fifth St. in Grand Haven. The museum will open its doors to the public and host its official grand reopening from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6.
The location was formerly known as the Nathaniel and Esther Robbins House and was renovated by MMM. The new space offers the museum additional room for exhibits on the ground floor, with room for future growth on the upper floors. The museum will display a collection of world-class miniature works, permanent and rotating exhibitions and a gift shop.
Miniatures are displayed in a gallery setting, and the museum welcomes visitors of all ages to enjoy the work of many well-known miniaturists. Featured pieces include scale-models of buildings from a variety of places in history and various room-boxes and vignettes.
