Madurodam is (www.madurodam.nl/en/) 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. Madurodam strives a realistic view of The Netherlands in a scaled down environment. Everything, including flora and street decoration is modeled to scale of 1:25. Madurodam shows the real life of the Dutch people. The ‘residents’ also change with the weather. In the winter they wear jackets and warm clothes and in the summer they wear T-shirts. The residents of Madurodam become also more and more multicultural. Although Madurodam is mainly a miniature city a collection of Dutch landmarks is also found amidst the landscapes. They include the Rijksmuseum, the Binnenhof (where the government is located), Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, The Netherlands’ main international airport, the Port of Rotterdam, world’s third-largest port, Traditional Dutch canal houses, Tulip fields and Windmills.
