World of miniature vehicles: A must-visit place in Ooty
The mini car museum in Ooty isn’t a usual tourist place like other places here. This museum is just 5 km away from the Ooty railway station. It is a one-time visit place for those coming to Ooty. But if you are crazy follower of automobiles, then it is a sea of knowledge.
The museum exhibits four-wheelers used long back until the latest models of Benz and Ferrari. It is a wonderful collection of the miniature models of these automobiles.
The entry fee is Rs 30. No special charges will be levied for photography or videography. The information boards are also instituted near the exhibits so that those interested could read and understand more about the models.
A sales center is also set up outside the museum for the sale of these miniature cars and bikes. There is a special department here to attract the bike lovers. It houses small bike models made out of thrown away nails, springs, nuts, cycle chains and small iron pieces.
On the first sight, the prices of these art pieces seem a bit expensive. Though they are small, the labor behind these works is huge. So the price could be justified.
