For over 60 years, Madurodam
, a miniature historical park in the Hague district of The Netherlands, has hosted millions of visitors each year. And when we Say That Madurodam is a "miniature" historical park, we certainly mean it, as it features many historical buildings, cities and landmarks from Dutch history on a 1:25 scale replica model. Some notable models, for instance, include the Port of Rotterdam, various windmills and even replicas of traditional Dutch canal houses.
The Three Theme Areas
The Madurodam park is broken up into three main theme areas - City Centre, All which shows the evolution of the Netherlands, Water World, an interactive area That Provides a comprehensive look at how big of a role (both good and bad) Water has played in the country's evolution, and the last theme is Innovation Island, an area That celebrates the creativity That has been brought to and displayed in the country's architecture.
The Wadden Sea
Aside from the three main family-friendly fun areas, there's a spot just for the kids - Specifically Kids That Are ages 6 to 12. Offering a variety of swings, slides and other playground equipment, the Wadden Sea also features a fishing boat playscape and lighthouses for children to play in.
