[caption id="attachment_2118" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="Suzanne Landshof from the Museum of Miniature Houses"][/caption] Hamilton County, Indiana is filled with fun things to do and unique peopleÂ to meet. Â Co-founder of the Museum of Miniature Houses in Carmel, Suzanne Landshof,Â has spent the past 30 years creating scaled miniature homes and individualÂ miniature settings. In 1991, she joined forces with two other women whoÂ shared her love of miniatures and they began the Museum of Miniatures HousesÂ - which resides in the heart of the Carmel Arts & Design District. Visitors to this unique museum can expect to find architecture, fiber arts,Â style, fantasy, history, modeling and creativity within each of theirÂ exhibits. There are only five Miniature Museums, so guests will surely seeÂ new, different and fun things. When visiting, be sure to see the Shanunga house - a version of an early Nantucket cottage, and one of Landshof'sÂ favorite houses.
