Great things come in small packages at the Museum of Miniatures, a new Nanton tourist attraction that celebrated its grand opening on April 30…Formerly operating the museum in Cardston, the latest exhibit took seven years for the Wittmans to complete and their efforts have paid off with a spectacular recreation of the Old West.”

Our Miniatures Make Big Impressions
Come to Nanton and experience the Old West at the Museum of Miniatures. It will be one of your top Alberta tourist attractions. Not only will you visit historical:
- Native villages
- Active western towns
- Farming and logging communities
You'll also explore vivid miniature displays that include:
- Wildlife scenes
- A circus
- African jungle animals
- Prehistoric animals
We also have extensive collections including historical photos, paintings, artifacts, Indian carvings, plus over 160 authentic top quality 1/24″ scale model cars and trucks. There is something for everyone.
You can travel around our museum leisurely on your own or have Roy Wittman take you on a journey around the museum. Roy will share historical accounts of the exhibitions with behind-the-scenes personal tales of adventure of how he and Carol built the museum and its collections.
Your visit to our museum will be unique compared to other miniatures museums around the world. You'll see our pieces are built to a 1/12″ scale which is slightly larger, but more accessible to the greater audience.
Our museum welcomes seniors, adults and children of all ages. We are also wheelchair friendly and have a wonderful gift shop!
