I'd love to go to Europe someday - now I have a reason to go to France, specifically! Check out this amazing museum dedicated to miniatures and film special effects. It's wonderful to see the craftsmanship is being preserved, but I hope that the use of miniatures is not confined to a museum in the future.
"Created by miniaturist artist Dan Ohlmann, the Musée Cinéma et Miniature presents two rare and exclusive collections : first, over 100 miniature scenes exquisitely
crafted by world-renowned miniaturists and reproducing daily life
settings with hyperrealism; second, a film exhibition, one-of-its-kind in Europe, that focuses on special effects techniques.
Featuring over 300 original film props and artefacts, this educational
display uncovers the magic behind the greatest film studios."
