“France in miniature” is a novel form of entertainment for both children and adults. This is Europe’s largest miniature park, and it’s located in a Paris suburb not far from Versailles. On 5 hectares of open space, there are 116 1/30 scale models of major French attractions.
France miniature is an amusement park that allows you to see the entire country in a single day!
It’s an unusual journey through a miniature world with 117 French monuments reproduced at 1/30th scale and set in a 5-hectare landscaped park.
We can see the most famous monuments, such as the Eiffel Tower, as well as the village of Saint-Tropez and the Savoyard villages…
It is an opportunity for children to learn about France’s heritage, wealth, traditional villages, monuments and museums, bridges, and viaducts. They’ll have a good time recognizing familiar places.
The France Miniature theme park is very playful and designed specifically for children, with 14 interactive experiences. There’s an archaeological dig, a prehistoric cave, and the Fort Boyard experience!
France Miniature also has 9 attractions for both children and adults. Slides somersault to turn the head upside down.
At France Miniature, we never fail to come to be scared on Halloween. It’s a frightening time for the entire family!
Children under the age of four are admitted free to the park.
It is preferable to arrive by car (parking)
For those who want to eat lunch on-site, there are two restaurants (one of which is a fast-food restaurant). France Miniature celebrates Halloween every year during the All Saints’ Day holiday. The park is transformed into a funny scary world for the occasion: monuments are overrun by bats, spiders, skeletons, witches…
Visitors feel like Gullivers in the land of the Lilliputians as they walk along the cobbled paths. It’s no surprise that the park’s motto is “Walk across France in the footsteps of a giant.” Rivers, the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, a hundred ships and boats on the water, thousands of dwarf trees (specifically chosen for each landscape), a railway with a fast-moving train, tiny men, and, of course, the sights themselves.
They are arranged on the map in the order in which they can be found. You can’t possibly list everything. Many of the models are animated, with church bells ringing, dogs barking, and cows bellowing from the villages.
The sights of Paris have separated: the Sacre-Coeur Basilica on Montmartre (accessed via a small funicular), Of course, the Eiffel Tower is only 10 meters tall, but it appears to be the real thing.
Everything in the park appears to be real, the project’s creator has been working on it for 15 years to achieve maximum dependability. He only worked on the Versailles gardens for about a year! And the Chambord castle required 200 hours of labor. And it’s understandable: after all, each detail had to be displayed precisely, sculpted in miniature, painted, and connected with another equally tiny detail.
Because models are out in the open, they are frequently restored or altered. In general, work on the park never stops – something new appears in this tiny world every year, or the old is updated. The same as in the real world.
