How about discover France but miniature sized? Set about 20 minutes from the Porte d'Auteuil, 10 minutes from Versailles and covering a 5-acre area, come and discover and make your children discover scale models of the most beautiful monuments and landscapes. The park is to reopen from Saturday April 9, 2022.
As soon as you get into France Miniature’s green parking lot, you will feel lifted in another world. You are in nice looking park that you can enjoy with your children. Discover the magnificent French monuments on a scale 1:30.
A marked trail leads you and shows you how to visit France. Busy discovering monuments and listening to forgs croaking and the model train travelling the whole park, my kids did not ask me to carry them (which is rare). With a total of 117 replicas of monuments and 150 French typical landscapes. There are so many things you won’t even know where to look at.
From the Arc de Triomphe to the Théâtre d’Orange, Saint-Emilion’s village to the Castle of Montmaur and Auvergne volcanos, the Castles of la Loire or the Place Stanislas of Nancy, all the beauty of the French heritage unveils itself in front of your eyes. You will have to walk across the alleys to realize how many outstanding places of interest this country has to offer.
You think your kids will be bored by France Miniature ? Trust us, you’ll be surprised. Not only they enjoy the park, but the majority of them also asks to go back. Why? Because at France Miniature, you discover monuments but you also participate in playful installations.
You can try to get your hands on King Arthur’s legendary sword, ring the northern bells on a trampoline, learn how to make a barrel and a barrage...
The park renews and offers activities to entertain children. For example, they can get into the skin of an archeologist, and look for Gallo-Roman and medieval treasures using shovels and sieves. They will be able to find pearls, gold or silver buttons, and mosaic pieces refering to the Gallo-Roman era, jewelry, coins and keys refering to the medieval era.
A new generation prehistorical cave inspired from Lascaux allows you to go 18,000 years back in the past. You’ll be able to reproduce 18 different cave paintings on a touchscreen, using flint to engrave, paintbrushes and blowpipes to project the colour pigments in an original way. And what could be more glorifying than seeing your creation projected on the wall of the cave along the permanent works!
If you hang out next to the Palace of Versailles, you will enjoy the famous water falls of the Palace like they did during Louis XIV's era.
And for not long ago, France Miniature also open the doors of Fort Boyard for you. Enter Père Fouras' den and discover the council room as if you were in Fort Boyard. Inside, 7 challenges to take up. Like in the TV show, face off one another with thinking games and games of skill.
Answer Père Fouras' enigmas and face off the Masters of Time.
Ultimately, test your agility with the "Q-tips" challenge. Will you stay balanced and make your competitor fall?
Let us not forget that France Miniature offers a whole range of free attractions to have a day full of fun.
So, the tour will be even richer and you will leave the park knowing a lot about history and it is really pleasant!
