Both kids 5 and 3. The 5 year old was fascinated with the set up and the little figures and settings. The 3 year old wanted to join the settings. All loved the train ride. Worthwhile.

I'm surprised that some of the comments are a bit negative on this site because I found it very interesting and lovely to see. It's great for kids as well. If you take the time to really look, you will see little hints of humour...More

Great day was had by all (from a 2yo to a 60yo). Entertaining, easy to walk slowly and see everything, pricey to get in, but worth it when you see the level of detail and time invested. Look for easter eggs (Hidden things), and dont...More

A very relaxing visit to this beautiful garden, visiting landmarks around the world. The children had lots of fun, and finished off with a steam train ride. With the 3 in 1 Fun deal, it makes this visit even more worthwhile.

Went here with 4 adults and 3 children, I can appreciate that a lot of time went into building these models, but considering they are so poorly maintained, I don't see how they think the prices are justified. First and last visit.More
