Today is opening day for the new Mini-Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, a 15,560-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility located at 4455 E. Camp Lowell Drive.

The museum is dedicated to miniature houses and room boxes and is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated solely to the display of minatures, said Gentry Spronken, director of marketing and communications.

More than 160 miniatures are on display at the museum, and include replicas of the Gambel House in Pasadena, Calif., and ornate European palaces.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is $7 general; $6 seniors; $5 for ages 4 to 17; free for ages 3 and younger.
