Madurodam part IX

In July 2015 I visited Madurodam in The Hague (Den Haag).

Madurodam was founded in 1952 as a war monument. It was in memory of warhero and partisan George Maduro who died in concentration camp Dachau on 09 February 1945. His parents donated the capital to start Madurodam.

Once I entered the entrance, I had to present myself as a Blogger Press Card holder. The cashier gave me a free entrance card. I also got another card (creditcard size). After activating this card you can have extra information about the building/location you walk by. I also got a leaflet about what you will see in Madurodam.
After taking care of all of this, I started to walk around. The buildings/locations you will see are the well known buildings in the Netherlands. Only one exception…. They are more then 25 times smaller then in reality.

These buildings/locations you will find at Madurodam:
