MinNature Malaysia opened in November 2016 after eight years of planning, fundraising, designing and construction. Initially, it had occupied a huge 17,000 sq ft area in Subang Jaya, but in July 2020 it moved to the far more centrally situated Sungei Wang Plaza in Bukit Bintang. It is the largest permanent indoor miniature and train display in Asia and the third-largest in the world. The eye for detail which has been given by MinNature 3D printers is quite remarkable.

This secret gem, wedged in century-old shops and busy streets, was opened in 2019

The construction of this two-storey building was the imaginative brainchild of a well-known architectural firm in Singapore, Swan and MacLaren.
