We had a quite an adventure when we (finally!) visited Gulliver's Gate, the miniatures mecca in Times Square, New York City!
Allow for ample time to go through the entire attraction, there is so much to see! Plan a return trip as they add (and take away) from the display to introduce new miniatures. More from our little adventure can be found on our InstagramTV station.
This extra large dollhouse was installed on the outside of Palais de Tokyo and is part of a new showing of work by Amabouz Taturo.
The exhibition: "Another Banana Day for the Dream-Fish" is on view through September. How's THAT name for an art show?
