A French Museum Dedicated to Miniature Incredibly Detailed Movie Sets

Housed in a 16th-century building in the historic center of Lyon, France is the Musée Miniature et Cinéma, a 5-story museum holding over 100 miniature film sets. The tiny scenes were produced by world-renowned miniaturists and contained the highest form of Hyperrealism to trick the audience’s eye into assuming each set was indeed life-size.

“The indirect lighting arrangement, the careful replication of old textures, the use of the same original materials, all add to the creation of a moving poetry that resonates with each new miniature panorama,” explains the museum’s website.
