Permanent Exhibit
The Mundoville Gallery of International Folk Art in Miniature features the world in miniature. The collection was donated by the late Jeanne Nash, a founding member of the Museum. Nash donated her entire collection to the Museum which comprises over 21 miniature houses, multiple small-scale scene replications and hundreds of international folk dolls representing eras, people, and cultures from around the globe.  In addition there are numerous related life-size items. Many objects in the collection are hand-made from natural materials.
