The few 9/10 year-old's enjoyed the walk through, but older kids may not be entertained. I won't go out of my way to visit, but kids under 10 may enjoy seeing the miniature city.

Quick and easy access. Well maintained and functioning ships. It could be a bit more elaborate but overall worthy of a visit

It was a lot of fun to visit as we saw it while at the beach. I wouldn't drive all the way there for it, but it's really great if you're passing by or it's on the way. Really cool for kids, and affordable, too!

whats interesting for me is that, the buildings are crafted into these tiny little structures and they are exactly like the actual buildings, A job well done to the artists who captured the little details in creating these mini buildings, i respect your craft

Miniature fun for the whole family! Entrance is inexpensive. Great treat for kids. Nice place for photo-ops. Great to see the landscape of Durban on a smaller scale and the train is a nice added bonus
