Two weekends ago my husband and I took Aaron to the model train museum here in Toronto. I expected that the trip would only appeal to the boys but I found these mini towns fascinating. The detail and amount of work that went into building the scenes I can really appreciate. It was the last weekend it would be open before they took it all down to rebuild in another location. The process for re-building is very long and they will not be re-opening for four years.
This miniature set is huge! It spans the entire basement level of an old factory building. It has also been around since 1946, so we were so glad we were able to see it before it was taken down. Have a look at their website it also has a video.
