Like little things? Check out the Ninth Annual Museum of Miniatures Show coming up September 18-19, next weekend, hosted by Carmel, Indiana‘s Museum of Miniature Houses. Carmel is a fast-growing, upscale suburb just North of Indianapolis, and the Museum of Miniature Houses is a major attraction in Carmel, an arty, eclectic community.
This North Indy event will be a hit with the whole family. It’s one of those unique things to do in Indianapolis that hold an attraction for kids of all ages. Held at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, the locale for the event is actually just inside Indianapolis’ northern border by the I-465, less than five miles from Carmel and Broad Ripple Village, and within ten miles of the communities of Zionsville, Fishers and the Indianapolis downtown sector.
When you see these tiny works of art in person, you’ll understand why miniature houses have been popular practically since man was building big ones. There will be “Make it and take it” projects and workshops during the two-day event. Enter your room box, dollhouse or vignette and you might just win a trophy.
Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Museum of Miniature Houses.
