We visited this place on a rainy Sunday afternoon. If we would've have kids with us we probably would've spent a lot more time in here than just with 3 adults. The place will imitate the night time by turning off the lights and you can see the dioramas lit up. Very cool. The dioramas are rich with detail although... More

You can easily spend over an hour here. A must-see if you are into miniature trains. Beautifully set up with lots and lots detail. The nighttime effect is very cool.

My husband thought it was a bit average - the two five year olds had a whale of a time. And it IS their visit, after all. One visit is enough, but to be recommended when whiling away the school holidays. Not particularly cheap.

The kids loved this place, especially the lighting effects. Highly recommended for families & enjoyable for the kids. A lot of effort has gone in to this attraction & it is well maintained.

This is a fantastic attraction just out of the centre of Rotterdam. It is basically a miniature model of Rotterdam including roads, harbours, railways and buildings. The details is amazing even down to the flashing indicators on vehicles at junctions. I would recommend this to any person who likes scale models

The models of buildings were built nicely and they are organized. There are trains all along and the lights even turn dimmer and brighter to simulate night and day! Quite an impressive attraction but the fee is expensive.

This was an interesting place. Certainly of particular interest to those with a love of modelling and model railways, but I think a little something for all. Our youngest was kept amused with the buttons to 'make something happen' and we were kept amused not just by the many aspects of the city and region that have been captured in... More

Miniworld is a very impressive model layout of areas around Rotterdam. (We have also visited Minatur Wunderland in Hamburg, which is on a totally different scale and even more impressive!). The detail is very good and there are lots of little 'extras' to find - great for kids- such as The Teletubbies, a penguin family on an ice-berg, a giant... More

This is a model train lovers heaven. I really enjoyed the visit to Mini World, so many trains, so many details - you could spend hours there. Unfortunately there were very few trains running in the basement section (small scale trains).
