After being ignored on the way in to the shop I must say that it was not a good start. The miniature village was run down and a bit boring, even for the kids. No clogs were being made at the time we were there, but that's our poor timing. Consider a gold coin donation to enter to help with... More

Nice gift shop, walk through to a very well designed and made miniature village of Holland. Also do demos about 3 times a day on how to make Clogs, unfortunately the day we visited (Sunday)they were not doing this. Little café there also serving Dutch goodies.

A pretty place to take some pics of the models. A lot of hours would have gone into these. The clog making was informative. The cafe was great & homey. A nice little stop over. Not sure if kiddies would be that fussed over it.

Do you know why the Dutch (farmers) invented clogs? Because heavy clay does not stick to timber!!! Take at least an hour to look at the demonstrations and displays and you will never forget why the Dutch (used to) wear clogs! I know - I am a Dutch Aussie:-)

Small model garden set up as "Holland down under". Loads of gifts to choose from, many made in Holland. Clogs and clog slippers!

Cute, but I agree with the other posts, it is a wee bit tired looking. The souvenir shop again was also rather average. But the man behind the counter was friendly, and welcoming. Glad it was free and families with young kids would love it!

For small kids it would be fun, especially when the entry fee is $0, but nothing much really attracting the tourist. We missed the clog-making demonstration (bugger), however the walk around the miniature village was interesting, complete with working windmills.
