I went with some folks from work to Mini Israel a place with lots of models of famous sites in this country.
Downtown Tel Aviv. Here there is a street with moving Scaletrix style cars and trucks that go up and down. A lot of the trucks having recognisable brands such as the blue, green and red one being Tvuna, Israel’s largest dairy.
This tourist place is a kind of Israel’s “greatest hits album” as its a way seeing a hundred odd places in one location, and a good way of seeing a glimpse of places you have yet to visit, everywhere from Mount Hermon to Eilat. 🙂
Here is the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem.
More sights of Jerusalem’s old city.
Tel Aviv water front. Looks great but is there a model of the Zohan? 🙂
The attention to detail on the models is excellent. There are small background noises put in, such as traffic, crowds etc. Only trouble is maintaining this stuff must be a full type job as the hot temperatures and dust has caused some of the models to crack in places, so regular repair is often needed. There are a lot of places miniaturized, not just religious sites but even Coca Cola factory and people working a Kibbutz.
This was a nice day out, although some scary experiences on the way home…..
