Hugely Great Small
As devoted tinsel-readers already know, tinselman is a ginormous fan of the miniature. That's why his brain practically exploded at the tinselmagically amazing Musée des Plans–Relief! Why, he asks, are there no tourists at this remarkable collection of historic diminutives?... especially when they're housed in such a central location: in the heart of Paris' 7th arrondissement, at the Musée de l'Armée.

Without a doubt, one of my favorite museums in all of Paris is the Galeries de Paléontologie et Anatomie comparée. I've really never seen anything like it... though I know it can't be true, there's a sensation it hasn't changed for 100 years, since it's inauguration for the Worlds Expo, in 1898.
