Miniature City: Madurodam (The Hague, Netherlands)


Madurodam is a miniature park and tourist attraction in the Scheveningen district of The Hague in the Netherlands. It is home to a range of 1:25 scale model replicas of famous Dutch landmarks, historical cities and large developments. The park was opened in 1952 and has been visited by tens of millions of visitors since.

Every object in Madurodam has been built at a scale of 1:25. When the managing directors decide a specific miniature has to be fabricated for Madurodam, the builders will first research all aspects of the actual building.

They will research the shape, color and all other properties of that object, by analysing many pictures. After this information search it's possible to start making the models.

A computer measures everything and sends all information to a machine that makes the physical model. The model goes to the painting room where it gets the final look. In this painting room restorations also take place. Because most of the miniatures are outdoors, they need regular paint retouches.
