In the French city of Lyon exists a marvelous, miniature world. Dan Ohlmann is no Gulliver, but he has founded the Musée Miniature & Cinéma, where Lilliputians would feel right at home. Here’s Dan, lording over a tiny and eerily exact natural history museum he’s created.

And here’s a library so realistic, it makes you think you could walk right in. Maybe your hand would fit here, but that’s about all!
Miniatures are frequently used to help create movie magic. It’s clear to see why!

She will break it down for you with pictures of homes so charming you will want to send the gnomes packing and move in yourself!
