The Michael Garman Museum ~ Magid Town Children's Tours
Magic Town is a 3,000 square-foot sculptural theater created by Michael Garman.  It houses dozens of buildings, hundreds of sculpted characters along with holograms, magical rooms and sound effects.  Tours who walk through Magic town are encouraged to imagine the stories taking place in this urban setting that combines the Rockwell-inspired nostalgia of yesteryear with modern characters.  This city represents the life story of Michael Garman who is a self-proclaimed vagabond, ne’er-do-well, hobo, wino and story-teller.  Through his teens and twenties, Michael hitchhiked through North and South America, then settled in San Francisco where he lived in the wino district at 3rd  and Minna.  Today his old address is now, fittingly, the home of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  Michael moved to Colorado in 1971 and set to work building Magic Town soon after arriving.  The newest edition of Magic Town was completed in early spring 2009.
