Madurodam, The Hague

4.1
#1 of 15 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.

  • A rather cute place in Den Haag where you can explore and see a smaller version of Netherland. The kids will definitely love it and they can see little attractions from each miniature (but you have to...  more »
  • Spent a sunny afternoon here on my birthday. Madurodam gives a great overview of special buildings and locations in The Netherlands.  more »
  • Netherlands are shown here in miniature. Very cozy atmosphere of the Park. The entire country is represented, very interesting to get acquainted with all attractions, cities. Every action figures move, float ships and so on. For kids the insanely interesting walk. You can relax in the Café on the Park's territory. Get easy. Liked it

  • Totally cool and so much fun even for an old fart like me. We cycled to the place. 18 euro entry fee. The park is huge with so much too see. The attention to detail is mind blowing. Each tree has been cut down to size. The place is super neat. Nothing out of place. Spent all my time in wonder of the quality of marksmanship. This is a highlight for me visiting the netherlands and i would have kicked myself if i had not Visited here. Top marks guys FOR the best miniature town anywhere in the world that i have visited. The closest was in Turkey but they didn't have the detail and even running scale trains which for me at 47 year old was priceless. Thanks for making me feel Like a kid again... Amazing... Loved it... 10 stars from me
  • Madurodam is certainly a spectacle that can only be truly appreciated in person. It is a tiny model city of famous landmarks and villages from towns all over the Netherlands. A few points to consider: 1. It is very interactive, so it will take more time than you think to see and interact with everything. 2. DEFINITELY go on a SUNNY day. I don't know if they close on rainy days, but the entirety of the model city is outside and NOT covered. So also, bring a hat/sunblock if there is full sunshine! 3. I went here on one of my first days in the Netherlands, and I wish I would have waited until the end of my trip so I could have more points of reference of what the actual structures look like in real life. Regardless, the monuments and model buildings are all very detailed and accurate. 4. The restaurant/cafe is very nice. It's a bit pricey, so if you want to save on food you can certainly bring your own and eat outside in the many places to eat. If you're not the pack-lunch type, the cafe definitely serves tasty food. My sister and I really enjoyed spending an afternoon here. We also walked through the park on the other side of the underpass afterward for a nice dose of nature after being around so much man-made stuff. Highly recommend doing this while in Den Haag!
  • A visit to this is well worth the effort. So easy to access by public transport. You can spend the whole day at this site and still see something new. Excellent for the kids. The detail in the models is astounding.
  • A beautifully curated place with all the important buildings of Netherlands in 1:25 scale. Some are working models such as trains, bridges. A good cafe to grab lunch or a coffee. They have a 3D printing facility where you can get a miniature of your self. All in all a good place to be with family.
  • Really nice park, you can do stuff yourself and you could watch a video. Unfortunately some didn't work. Nevertheless the park is full with miniatures from all over Holland, there's a big chance of spotting something you know. The park is mainly outside, with some indoor activities. There's a restaurant and playground for smaller kids. There is also a gift shop, it's not that big but they have nice things. If you visit Holland and don't want to do a road trip, this is the place to go! Please give this review a like :)
