Welcome to Smallsea: A Metropolis in Miniature

Come step into the miniature metropolis of Smallsea!  Located in Carmel, California, Smallsea depicts the city center of a fictional city in Edwardian England circa 1900 to 1905. From the bakery to the brewery, the seaport to the city’s town hall it is all there to see in meticulous detail. In addition to the buildings there are horses and carriages, busses and early automobiles. A population of over 1,000 miniature dolls goes about the daily routines of city life.
Smallsea: A Metropolis in Miniature is the collection of Diane and Howard Birnberg. Diane and Howard build the structures and collect all the miniatures and dolls. Artists and premier dealers from all over the world have assisted in making this miniature city come to life.
