For one of the days that we were in Paris, we were brought to France Miniature, where you get to see the whole of France in the miniaturized form of course. It is not something that is very exciting, but great if you have not enough time to explore the rest of France and want to get a ‘mini’ glimpse of the country to plan for your next visit! It is not ‘exciting’ in the sense that you really don’t do much, except walk around and admire the miniatures, but otherwise good fun for adults looking for something not so strenuous and children. It is interesting to see the miniaturized versions of monuments that you already visited or want to visit in the future. They were amazingly detailed and accurate. We took a bus there, so there was no worry about the parking fees.


There were active model trains running about, sailing boats moving in the ponds as well as a beautiful garden, with a small outdoor Luna Park for children. The restaurant stops serving meals by 2pm, so be prepared to have lunch in Parisian hours which is around noontime. We had a light lunch and some pretty nice desserts, as you can see from the photos.


You get to see the whole of France in a day! There are 116 miniature sites and monuments in France Miniature, which are approximately 1/30th the original size. For example, the Eiffel Tower is about 25 ft high. The paths meander around little ponds and hills, with each mini site set with appropriate miniature trees and landscaping.
