Get a taste of tiny house living (literally) in the Museum of Miniatures in Marikina. This obscure museum houses a collection of tiny replicas of things you would find in different rooms of a European mansion. Each room and shadow box is designed with incredible attention to detail. The miniatures are part of the collection of the late Aleli Vengua, a passionate artist who handcrafted most of the pieces herself. A lot of the materials used are from scrap items in our day to day living, like plastic, wood, aluminum, fabric, and glass.

Museum of Miniatures. 2nd level, E-com Building Riverbanks Center, Barangka Marikina City (Take the stairs or elevator at the E-com Annex). Open from Friday to Sunday: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Monday to Thursday: Closed. Entrance Fee: General admission: P75/person
