A Visit to Small Sea

I came upon Smallsea on a visit to Carmel this Thanksgiving! I am new to the miniature world and it was inspiring to see the quality and the details in the museum displays. Thanks for the website and please keep adding to the content for your fans.

Visits to Smallsea

In July, 2008 while on a trip to Monterey and the Aquarium, my 9 year old granddaughter and I were meandering through the Barnyard Shopping Center and came upon the Dollshouse Museum. Diane and Howard were there building, painting, decorating. Diane took the time to open each doll house and explained each store and it's story. My granddaughter was mesmerized, enchanted and inspired. We returned to San Francisco took her unfinished 4 room doll house and painted the outside, wallpapered and decorated the inside. We returned to the Smallsea Dollshouse Museum last week to see the metropolis decorated for Christmas.

Diane and Howard Birnberg are wonderful and generous. I recommend everyone with a child's eye to visit and enjoy their work.
