Madurodam, The Hague

4.1
#1 of 12 in Theme Parks in South Holland Province
Take a condensed tour of Holland at Madurodam, an interactive miniature theme park focused on Dutch cultural traditions and historical sites. This impressive, well-visited park opened in 1952 and features small-scale replicas of the most famous landmarks, cities, and landscapes in the Netherlands. Look for Rijksmuseum, Binnenhof, Port of Rotterdam, tulip fields, windmills, and small recreations of traditional Dutch canal homes. Don't try to count the tiny lights--there are 50,000--in this shrunken city. You'll have better luck with the number of miniature planes stationed at the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol replica. Take a look at our The Hague trip planning website to schedule your visit to Madurodam and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Miniature park is very pleasant and useful site, gulyaetsya with pleasure, all building amazing, architectural complex. Like everyone, especially delighted children when dummy trains and planes move along ... Be sure to visit! You will not regret! In addition there are baked miniature pancakes!

  • For non-English or Dutch-speaking people, you are not ready. They give you a card that in different monuments give you an explanation in the language you previously selected, but half of those machines were not working. The few shows that there are in these 2 languages. In addition it is very crowded and you can just play with few interactive activities that exist. For the Dutch it can be interesting because they know the buildings are represented. The buildings are nice, but for value for money, from my point of view, it does not compensate. If I had known it before, I would have not entered.

  • A surreal experience depicting the daily life in miniature.. it's been done so meticulously well..with coordinated movement of the trains, trucks & cars.. bridges opening up for the ships to pass through.. people walking around.. It's so lively..truly magical! Especially the airport was awesome! Detailing is spectacular.. I wonder how they keep it so clean when in the open! We spent around 3 hours, but I really wish I had more time. I just loved the place!
  • We love this place and found it also very interesting, because it gives you a good in-view of Netherlands points of interest. Very nice and detailed miniature houses set in a small park. There is a lively atmosphere with lots of miniature trains, mills, ships, airplanes and cars moving around and turning. The self service restaurant is not cheep but it offers fresh and tasty staff. Come in autumn on a week day outside holliday periods like we did, and you will enjoy more this experience, because there are only few people around.
  • This was one of our best experiences in Netherlands. There is a tram that runs to the stop. It is big and beautiful. Plan to spend a minimum of 4 hrs there because you can do everything. There are many shows but make sure you either stand in the line for English shows or the German show. There are activities and play areas for kids as well. There are restaurants and souvenir stalls. There are challenges that you can participate in. Use the map they give you on entry to ensure you see and do everything Madurodam has to offer.
  • A fun place to visit. I remember visiting about 20 years ago and to be able to come back and see everything from a different perspective was great. I would recommend seeing it at least once, if not twice!
  • A must visit for all visitors to the Hague. Excellent waterworks models for children and adults. Beautiful and very precise models of the buildings
