Museum of Miniature Houses

Several new exhibits are now on display at the Museum of Miniature Houses and Other Collections, 111 East Main Street, Carmel.

• "Home Suite Home" An exhibit of miniature homes depicting different architectural styles.

• "Chimney Sweeps" Thought to bring good luck, the Museum is displaying a whimsical collection of over 60 chimney sweeps. Some made of metal, some porcelain, another is a nut cracker, and several are even hand-carved!

• "Model Ships" From a whaler to a paddle boat, lovingly assembled model ships with intricate detail.

• Miniature Early American Tools and Implements Most made by Harold Cooley and donated to the Museum by Harold and Bea Abbott.

The Museum is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. Admission is $4 for adults, and $2 for children under 10. For more information, call 317:575-9466.
