Children playing at Madurodam

Madurodam offers a nice day out for the whole family; there’s a lot to see and do and lots of interactive elements. In contrast to more conservative museums, you are allowed to touch and play with parts of the exhibition, ideal for kids! The museum also has an educative side to it: in a playful manner, you will be taught about the History of Holland, wind energy, water management and other interesting topics. Furthermore, there are shows and attractions that allow you to play with water, mix your own beats or create a miniature version of yourself.

The history of the miniature Holland theme park dates all the way back to its opening in 1952. The idea for the park was inspired by the world’s first model village; Bekonscot. Just like this miniature park, Madurodam’s profits were meant to support charity. The profits of Madurodam were mainly used to financially support the Dutch Students Sanatorium, a place where students with tuberculosis are given treatment and the possibility to study in the meanwhile.
