Group Visits, Coach Parties & Clubs

A World in Miniature Museum is delighted to welcome and encourages group visits, for which we can offer substantial discounts on entry prices to the museum and a marvellous selection of ‘Meal Deals’.

In our first season of being open, we received a number of visits from coach parties, clubs and associations, including the Women’s Institutes and a large group from North Wales and Chester

miniaturists club who said “It was more than we expected, ….’ It was a delight, a challenge and a feast for the eyes” and “we left full of awe and ideas”. One W. I. group was “absolutely delighted” with their Meal Deal and thoroughly enjoyed all the freshly prepared and home cooked meals, especially the “delicious puddings”, not to mention their personally guided tour of the museum.

Why don’t you get in touch and find out more about our ‘Meal Deal’ combined tickets for your coach party or group? We feel sure that a day out at Houghton Hall with all it’s delights, together with a trip to A World in Miniature Museum and a delicious lunch, will prove to be very popular!

School Trips

We are particularly happy to invite schools to visit the museum as it not only shows the youngsters the marvellous craftsmanship within the museum, but also gives them an overview of the social history of the early part of the 19th and 20th Centuries, before the days of computers and washing machines!

We invite one of your teachers to have a complimentary viewing in advance, so that they can assimilate the visit into the relevant part of the curriculum. The Museum is suitable for all ages from 7 upwards. We are happy to devise worksheets and questionnaires for the children to enhance the educational aspect of their visit.

Please contact our museum team ( and we will be delighted to send you out an information pack with all the relevant details and specially discounted prices.
