    • It was a hundred years ago, and it was yesterday... What life did our grandparents lead before the First World War ?

      This is the story of this unusual museum, with its 1/12th scale miniature display cases that meticulously depict peasant or bourgeois interiors before the First World War.

      You will also see astonishing dioramas that will take you on a tour of abandoned places in ruins.


      It is a unique, magical place, a must-see.


      You will take a trip to the past, and to different French regions at the same time as a return to your childhood, with the magical world of miniature. You will discover the peasant interiors and everyday objects of yesteryear, but in the world of Gulliver, the size of a doll's house ...

    A mini museum that is really worth the detour... the creator and guide invites us to enter her mini universe, sharing with us her attention to detail, her fantasy and her poetry... Her reconstructions transport us to the rural interiors of our regions. in the 18th century, then she gives us a more contemporary and poetic vision of her post-lockdown world, each miniature scene being clearly explained and detailed... currently she is working on "a tiny big construction site" (the reconstruction of an interior and exterior castle) which should be finished in 3 years...Bravo!!
