Owner description: All of Israel built in miniature, with some action elements. A good way for kids to learn about the country.

In the tradition of Madurodam in the Netherlands or Minimundus in Austria, Mini-Israel presents prominent Israeli buildings, installations, landmarks etc. to visitors of all ages. Aesthetically laid out with restaurants and other facilities and surrounded by green lawns one can view the geography of Israel and get a feeling of how the country is viewed from a bird's eye-view. Specially suitable for children from the age of 4 or 5 years and up but of interest to adult visitors as well. Conveniently located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. An enjoyable experience.

This attraction was at a very low level. Firstly, tickets to EVERYONE, there is no child ticket, costs 70₪ each! Which is the equivalent to $20! Staff are rude, everything is dirty and dusty, some models are even broken! It is outdated in terms of buildings and the pools of water aren't full and are dirty. It took us less than an hour to see everything, and we walked slowly and we took pictures. Basic snacks are very expensive and the signs which show the way are filthy. This place is in need of serious refurbishment and cleaning. New technologies, better speakers for their music. A much more lively atmosphere and people who will clean the tables of the caffeteria. There were many parts of Israel missed out, and all the little figures are crumbling apart. All my high expectations have fallen into the ground and I can easily say that I will NOT reccomend this to any friend.

For tourists got limited time in Israel will be much better to skip that site and focus on real attractions...

The benefit of the site is the location 15 minutes drive from Ben Gurion Airport what makes it an ultimate location for farewell dinners before departure...

After seeing Maduroadam in Rotterdam, I looked forward to seeing the Mini-israel Park. We had 2 free days at the end of our tour and went to the trouble of renting a car and driving there. I was quite disappointed. It does not appear to be maintained very well. There were some cute displays and clever sound effects but for the price and time and trouble it took to go, it was not worth it. The owners need to make a serious investment in upkeep. My husband enjoyed the park more than I did and did talk to someone about making improvements.

It's nice to see Israel in miniature.
The place is kind of sweet and there is also a restaurant.
A nice place for children.
