Tiny Tales for Tots is an early literacy program for preschool-aged children. Each month, a costumed character will bring a story to life at the museum.

The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is once again partnering with More to the Story Entertainment to present this beloved program monthly at the museum.

This program is designed for pre-school aged children and features a costumed character presenting a theme that relates to a miniature in our collection through story and song.

We are offering additional dates for this program to include select Wednesdays and Saturdays. See below for the schedule of stories and characters.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.


Tiny Tales for Tots takes place at the museum on select Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am–11:30am. See schedule below.


This program is included with General Admission or free for Museum Members.

Advance purchase admission tickets are not required. However, you can save $1 per ticket when you purchase your admission tickets online.
