Wee Winter Wonderland 2020 banner

During a Wee Winter Wonderland, The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is decorated for the season, including more than a dozen miniatures depicting holiday celebrations around the world and through time.

A Wee Winter Wonderland has become a beloved Tucson holiday tradition. Due to limiting our capacity, tickets may sell out during the holidays. We strongly suggest purchasing your tickets in advance. Not ready or unable to visit? This year we've added a Home for the Holidays section to each of the Holidays Around the World and Through Time artifact webpages, where we have curated some of our favorite craft and recipes ideas, along with holiday playlists, to bring some of these holiday traditions from around the world and through time to your home.

Holiday Closures: the museum will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas. The museum will close at 1:30pm on New Year's Eve and will be closed on New Year's Day.

Where's Walter?

Walter is the museum's diminutive Elf in the Miniature. He comes to visit on December first and hides in a different miniature every day throughout the month. Find him when you visit and win a teensy prize. Or follow us on Facebook or Instagram to keep up with his daily adventures.
