Little Nooks from Great Books

The Kruger Collection at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a really amazing collection of miniatures. If you can't make it there in person, you should at least check our their online gallery.

The Kruger Collection of Miniature Furnishings and Decorative Arts is pleased to announce a traveling exhibit of miniature rooms based on popular children’s books. The exhibit, “Little Nooks from Great Books,” features scenes from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone; Little Women; Little House on the Prairie; Peter Pan and Wendy; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Felicity Learns a Lesson: A School Story. Specific scenes include the cabin interior from Little House on the Prairie and the Gryffindor common room from Harry Potter, among others.

The exhibit, coordinated through Lincoln Public Schools Media Specialists or Gifted Facilitators, helps to promote reading and educates children about historical interiors. “Little Nooks from Great Books” will travel to seven LPS elementary and middle schools during the 2008/2009 school year.
