The Miniature Engineering Museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of miniature design and engineering projects. We are looking for miniature engines and projects of all types, particularly those that portray individual effort. Placards are provided crediting the designer and builder for the hand-made and pre-production prototypes. Commercial engines and projects will be exhibited in their own display arena.
The "World Class" Champlin Fighter Aircraft Museum is located at 4636 Fighter Aces Drive, (Falcon Field) Mesa, Arizona 85215, only twenty minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Enjoy your visit to this most amazing collection of WWI and WWII fighter aircraft, artifacts, and the new exhibit of miniature engines and engineering projects.
Encountered these magnificent operational miniature engines at one of the best museum exhibits I've seen. leif
At Jeppesen Terminal at Denver International Airport, from April 14 to September 10, 2006, walkway connecting the main terminal and concourse A. Contact Colleen Fanning, art program manager, 303-342-2523.
From the description provided by Ms. Fanning:
This collection of miniature internal-combustion engines is on loan from the Miniature Engineering Museum, in Tempe, AZ. Despite their jewel-like beauty, all of the engines exhibited are functional machines. Some are original designs; some are smaller versions of full-size engines. Each one has a description, crediting the designer and builder for the hand-made and pre-production prototypes.
Formed by Paul and Paula Knapp, the Miniature Engineering Museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of miniature design and engineering projects.
