Miniature World has for years been a popular destination for class school trips. Not only does it provide an entertaining walk through history with it incredibly intricate dioramas, it is the range of themes presented that makes for such a rich and engaging field trip.
Miniature World has, over the last 40 years in business at their Empress Hotel location, continued to update their miniature themes and depictions so that there are now well over a hundred displays exploring everything from the building of the first Canadian railway, to the world's smallest working sawmill, to futurist worlds and classic fantasies such as the Land of Gulliver and the World of Dickens.
Students can observe in the finest artisan detail, accurate, miniature re-enactments of historical events, geographical aerial perspectives and a complete range of worlds within worlds, including amazingly articulated dollhouses, Enchanted Castles and a massive re-creation of the World of the Circus complete with animated rides and soundscapes throughout.
A field trip to Miniature World is a fun, artistic visit to 'a museum of the imagination' that is sure to entrance and provoke creative appreciation in young and old alike.
