Museum of Miniatures

Automated house, front view, by Emil Wick ca.1885 sits on a rotating display in the History Gallery at The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures. This three-story wooden house or hotel is populated with mechanical figures animated by a key wound and weight driven mechanism inside the cabinet base which encases a music cylinder that chimes two different tunes.
