What to expect to see …… 

New York City exhibit celebrates scale and reveals the busy street life of our urban landscape

The model makers that built New York wanted to create a “city of light.” The skyscrapers are represented as pillars of light — illuminating the brilliance, vibrancy and jaw-dropping height of this great town. Look for all the major landmarks from the Empire State Building, to Central Park, to the Staten Island Ferry Building. Not only model train lovers will delight in our version of Grand Central Station — it is sliced open to allow you to see three levels of transit at the same time – cars, commuter trains, and the subway system, as well as the main concourse. Can you spot the tightrope walker between the chandeliers?  More than a city of great sights, New York is a city of great people.  Can you spot the firefighters high-fiving each other as they rescue a cat from a tree, trapeze artists swinging on a flying trapeze, a grafitti artist tagging a wall, and a man cracking a safe in the Met Life Building?
Then you have – India, Signapore, Malaysia and more ….

Exploring the largest continent on Earth just got a lot easier — by being scaled down to Gulliver size! Your Asian journey begins with a stop at the Taj Mahal. A true love story, this mausoleum was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife. It is located in India, and although all white, the structure can appear to be different colors depending on the time of day and the fullness of the moon.  Winding your way through India and Cambodia to Singapore and Malaysia, you’ll spot scenes exemplifying Asian culture, history and architecture. Discover Angor Wat and Malaysia’s Petronas Towers, and you may even find a Pokémon on Mount Fuji! When you reach China, you’ll instantly spot the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. Stop and ponder the majestic and unique karst landscape of Guilin, considered to be a sort of utopia. The story goes that it was settled by villagers who were tired of constant wars and wanted to find a peaceful place to live. They found the isolated village of Guilin and made their home. Years later, after many generations, they were discovered, living in harmony and unaware of the terrible woes that had befallen their countrymen in their isolation. This area has come to represent the ideal world where everything is beautiful and at peace.
