Miniature theme parks

I noticed the latest SSC banner showing miniature models of London. I also remembered another theme park in Netherlands called Madurodam.

Are there similar parks in your city/country?


Madurodam

The closest miniature world to me is Astrid Lindgrens värld I guess. Not as small as Madurodam but still pretty cool

I wonder why there are no model village's in North America. Although in Victoria, British Columbia we have Miniature World but it's not quite the same as a model village. My local model village in England was Bekonscot Model Village at Beaconsfield in Bucks....
