On Saturday, we happened upon Miniature World, created by Patti Doyle and set up for a very short time in the basement of the Stephens College Assembly Hall. It is a perfect place to spend an hour with children, gazing into the miniature worlds of cavemen, knights, pilgrims, cowboys, miners, construction workers, farmers and more…and then traveling the world to see such sights as the pyramids, the Great Wall of China, the Rhine River and Stonehenge.
The scale varies: This free exhibit is more about fun than about accuracy. One of the added bonuses is being able to take the roofs off several buildings to see what is going on inside. The exhibit will be open for the last time this year on Wednesday, December 19th, from 1 to 5 PM. Ms Doyle, a delightful and entertaining hostess, will be on hand to answer questions and explain her creations.
Stephens College Assembly Hall (sometimes called the Dorsey Street Auditorium or gym) is on Dorsey Street, south of Broadway. Walk down a short flight of steps in the center of the north side of the building and look for the Miniature World sign on the door.
