“MINI ISRAEL- MINI THRILLS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

If you have ever been to the mini Holland park in Holland, this one will pale by comparison. Although the park does give a fair overview of Israel as a country, it some how seems a tad contrived and somewhat less than authentic. The exhibit is relatively small and even with children will not occupy a lot of time.

The park is inconveniently located and is difficult to get to without a car. Although public transportation is available, it does not stop at the park and requires a short cab ride.

Admission is reasonable. Snacks, of course, are high priced. We went once. We won't go back.

“Highly reccommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

I was there with my family including to young boys, and it was a very pleasing experience. Plenty of things to do and see. There was a free theater show for the kids. The main attraction - the mini buildings are really nice. They are also placed from North to South just like in real life. Food and drinks are fairly priced and lots of places to sit and relax. English signs and warm hospitality. Very nice overall.

“A must for visitors to Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

This place is a must for every tourist to Israel.
You can see hundreds of touristic attractions of Israel, all together, at the very first day of your visit. Afterwards, just decide what to see on your next days "in real", and plan your stay according to what you liked the most.

Advice - visit this place at the late afternoon (after 2pm). This way you will see most of it during the daylight, but will catch the last hour at dark - and the park is very nice at dark as well!

“Nice, not more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

If you really like those miniature parks - go there, otherwise - I'd skip it and save my money.

“It's still Mini-Mini”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Compared to other miniature park in Europe this one is quite small.It situated at about 25 minutes by car from Jerusalem and easyly accessed.It has a restaurant and souvenir shop and the whole place is very well kept.
You can walk between the airport and King David hotel or visit the Hermon mountains and jumo in the water in Eilat.I think many more atractions are missing.The miniature construction is exccelent and you can take photos and if shown to somebody not knowing the place before that,he might think he sees the real one.
It's a pleasant way to spend a morning or aftenoon and definitly it's amust if traveling with chidren.
