Main exhibit room of the Craftsmanship Museum.
The Joe Martin Foundation Craftsmanship Museum, also known as the Craftmanship Museum and Miniature Engineering Museum, collects and displays unique carefully crafted objects of metal and wood. The collection includes approximately 500 working miniature engines as well as models of aircraft, automobiles, and other objects. Especially notable are a 1/6 scale model of a 1932 Duesenberg and several aluminum cutaway World War II fighter models. A Norden bombsight is displayed in the museum's collection. The museum houses a precision machine shop staffed by volunteer master toolmakers. The museum's toolmakers work collaboratively with craftsmen throughout the world building miniature projects. They clean, restore, repair and maintain the objects donated or loaned to the museum.
