We dropped by Madurodam on the way to Scheveningen Beach. The models were great and it was really fun spotting places we’d visited in real life and being able to see places we hadn’t. The entrance fee is a little pricey at around £19 per person, especially as we managed to see everything in under an hour. I’d imagine you’d be able to spend a good amount of time here though if you had kids, as there are a lot of interactive elements.

What a great place build by Mrs Boon-van der Starp, George Maduro's parents donated the funds needed for the Madurodam project, as a memorial to their son. S.J. Bouma.
This is a wonderful place to see as an adult but we watched the young kids run around and make use of the interactive components of the displays.
Sights and sounds are added and the details are just incredible.
We saw this as part of a tour and I would recommend it.
When we were there it was a cold day, mid week and crowds were not there.

It must have been more than 30 years since I last visited Madurodam. I grew up around the corner and saw the the development from small attraction park to what it is today (the Haringkade used to be through road).

Madurodam is, simply said, the Netherlands in a scale of 1:25. I can very much understand why this attrachtion is a must see for tourists. As a Dutchman, it still is a fantastic experience to walk passed all the sights. Having been to many of them myself.

I could not help to compare the present with the past. The railway layout is still the same, a log of the park itself has changed. Especially the bigger exibiths, such was the Maeslantkering and main port. The trains got an upgrade (newer stock), but for some reason there weren't any trams around. Also, the TGV wasn't in service.

Now some points of feedback: If you look closer, you can see some wear and tear. I must be quite a job to keep all the exhibits in pristine condition, but some of them clearly were broken (catenary wires of trams, some railway tracks of the stations). Perhaps a sign with an explanation that this was something that the park would be looking in to the matter would've been nice.

Due to COVID19 measures the park is running on 1/3 capacity with online ticket reservations being mandatory. Toilets were open. There is a designated walking route, marked by hearts. But a lot of people weren't following this path. Toilets were open and restaurants were open. All with reduced capacity. Due this all, it wasn't particularly busy. But still it was easy for us to make a online reservation for the same day.

The park is perfectly accessible with a pram (we bad our 11 months old son with us). There are plenty of playground options for children, with swings even for the smallest!

All in all we had a very nice afternoon.

Take a tour of all the beautiful scenic spots in the Netherlands by visiting this theme park. The miniature models are carefully crafted and placed in order. Be prepared to take a large number of photos during the visit.

We visited Madurodam on a nice summer day and reserved tickets on the website with entry time around 14:00 hrs. Because of the fact that it is necessary to buy tickets for a certain entry time, we had expected that the crowd would be regulated so that the parc would not be too busy. However, unfortunately, Madurodam was packed! It was impossible to keep 1.5 m distance and the directions of the walkways were unclear, leading to people using the small paths for both directions. None of the parc staff seemed to be bothered about this. The park itself is lovely; but some of the displays are old and need maintenance. Our teenage sons liked the visit, although there are too many small kids running around and there is not much to do for older kids; most activities are for kids up to 12 years old only.

Such a lovely place, great for travellers, couples, groups of friends or families with children. Loved the amount of effort that was put in, as well as the main attraction there is also a gift shop, cafe, food stalls and a play area for kids. Slightly pricey but worth it.

Madorodam is a great place for kids ages 4-13. It features minature boats and cars. I recomend going on a thursday night, because you have the whole plce to yourself before it closes. I went another time on a wensday afternoon and it was very crowded but still a great expierience.

Very beautiful and interesting place to visit 👍🏻 we had a beautiful day there . Also it’s very friendly to kids , many places for kids to play and some small games ❤️ the whole tour is around 3 hours , also with beautiful gift shop inside . 漂亮精致的微缩城市,处处都有很多有趣的小细节,值得花时间去慢慢发现。很多建筑是可以投币进行互动的。比如可以投币买各式各样的小纪念品,也有免费的可以体验的小游戏,很适合带着小朋友去玩。很多有趣的小朋友的娱乐设施,都是比较益智类的游戏,值得一去!

Walking around with a five year old. I know this place from over 15 years. Back then it was bigger and better. Nowadays, it needs to be an experience. Madurodam succeeds at parts. Better than in the old days is the reference to the person in whose memory this has been built. In Winter not everything is open, but we did enjoy it. The football experience was below every expectation. Stick to the basics.

See the whole Netherlands in an hour..

The place is specially good for kids and extended families who are staying for a short time in the low country.

The mini Schiphol airport is the best attraction here
