Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, Colorado Springs

4.4
At Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, wander around a realistic, 279 sq m (3,000 sq ft) dollhouse inspired by the artist's life story and journeys throughout the Americas. The museum showcases more than 500 handmade sculptures representing American heroes from all walks of life--from cowboys, soldiers, and firefighters, to aviators and golfers. As you move on a scavenger hunt through this miniature city, the sculptures seem to move along with you thanks to skillfully designed holograms and visual illusions.

  • We were part of a tour group and had very limited time here. It was really worth taking time to look at this amazing sculptural depiction. What a talented artist! You don't have to spend too long here...  more »
  • On our long journey from Amarillo to Denver, we stopped in Colorado Springs for a refreshment stop and a relaxing stroll in this beautiful town! In the Old Town district we discover this little gem: a miniature museum/art gallery with a unique attraction and that is Magic Town. practically a small town created by Sir. Michael Garman. a sculptor who creates worlds and characters in mignon format (beautiful western-themed miniatures). Magic Town is a very small masterpiece. and then we heard that for both Halloween and Christmas the little magical city is decorated themed to the theme of the two main festivals! If you're in Colorado Springs DON't miss this stop!

  • Awesome place! The 3D recreation of the olden times is mind blowing! Michael has such a vivid imagination. His talent and vision with this is absolutely spectacular! Steve and Laura were absolutely awesome in explaining how Michael put this together and how he came up with the concept. If you enjoy looking at the past, you'll be amazed at how much detail this exhibit has. You'll truly get a glimpse of the past.
  • Magic town inside the museum is amazingly detailed. Definitely worth the admission and you can take as little or as much time as you like to go through it. There is a scavenger hunt available which can be a fun activity for all in the family.
