Very exciting and full of meaning in every section of the layout. I recommend taking binoculars for rent, studying in more detail what is happening. The audio guide did not really help, only general information, an extra waste of money. There is no organized movement along the layout, due to this there are many collisions, regulated movement in one direction would greatly simplify the movement of people.

This was a hidden gem. It's a must-visit if you are travelling with kids. The details of the entire model were fantastic. It's engrossing and you can actually identify structures. Much better than the "Mini Europe" in Brussels. The way the vehicles, weather and time of day are controlled is mind-boggling. The artwork is fantastic. It will take you back to your childhood.
