Our grandsons enjoyed it and it's a nice place for children. Learning experiences, hands-on animals, a few rides, clean. My one caution is the zip line. No instructions, no employee, and no safety harness. I fell off.

They have many kids activities and they do explain how to make cheese and the wooden shoes although they don't really show how to make cheese. It was a perfect half day spent with my two kids.

The Nelis' Dutch Village is DO much fun this trip was our second time going there and my kids loved it. My son begged to go back, that is why we made it back there again. Michael showed us how they valve shoes and it was so AMAZING to see. The workers are all SO nice and it is such... More

My fiance and I absolutely LOVED this park and we will definitely visit again the next time we're in town. The park is designed to look like a small 19th century Dutch town and it's very informative and, at the same time, super fun! We got to walk a goat! It was a very unique experience! We also got to...

It rained, sometimes pretty hard, during our visit. We still enjoyed walking around and seeing the sites. The kids also like walking the goats! We had snacks at the cafe and bought souvenirs in the gift shop.

Ya know... this place surprised me on the upside. I went when my kids were smaller (ages 8 and 14) and my 14-year old (at the time) remembered it and we went back. Gee... it is 4 years later - they are 12 and 18. We loved it. Stayed 3.5 hours. And for a small-ish place of 31 - wow!.... More

This is not a huge theme park but a small entertaining and educational amusement park. Young children delight in the animals and rides. The candle making shop and cheese shop where my favorites. My daughter loved the shoe making demonstration. We had a very nice time, thank you.

I used to live in the Netherlands so this place brought back a lot of memories. I love the demonstrations they had for making wooden shoes, dancing in wooden shoes, etc. This is a great place for kids to learn about another culture. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. For the rides, the attendants alternate between the carousal... More

We spent most of the day here with a 5, 9 and 11 year old. It's not a thrill a minute, but the kids had fun on the rides and the shoe slide. The "petting zoo" they have is just okay...you could pet a rabbit and some goats but that's about all. You could also walk a goat, but it... More
