Unfortunatelly the replicas have suffered from years Mediterranean sunshine since the opening in 2002 and are presently being slowly repaired. The models also suffer from over-commercialization with tasteless advertising between the dioramas. One blatant case is the replica of the planned Egged Bus Museum which has not even been built yet. With that said, Mini Israel is still an exhilarating experience.
In order to overcome the loss of income due to decrease in tourist traffic, the Mini Israel Park offers a restaurant and catered private events in the park and even produces musical programs in a small amphitheater on the site.
Mini Israel Park is located just off the main Tel Aviv- Jerusalem highway, in Latrun, half way between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (only 20 minutes away) and only 15 minutes from Ben-Gurion International Airport. Many tourists come to this theme park directly from the airport. Other groups will sum up their visit with a peaceful stroll among the models.
