What better way to spend a rainy day in Victoria, BC (or any other day for that matter) than at Miniature World.
My first of 3 days in Victoria it was raining. I had dropped my bags off at the hotel and decided to go for a wander anyway. I headed down towards the famous Fairmont Empress Hotel but didn’t get to the front because I was distracted by some signs on the side of the hotel.
They were for Miniature World. I figured it was raining anyway so I might as well be dry so headed in. When I visited in 2013, the entry fee was CAD12. Their website now states it as being CAD14 for an adult – which honestly, is pretty darn good value for what you’re about to see.
I kind of had to rush around unfortunately because I arrived about 45 minutes before closing. Meant I couldn’t really spend a lot of time with each display but I got to see everything and everything was AMAZING!
There are different genres of displays from Old Canada to the Wild West. Old London Town to the New London. A circus display; castles of Europe and of course fairytales. There are also interactive displays. They do have revolving displays so things might have changed since I was there.
Here are just some of the cool displays I saw:
