I agree with some of the reviews below: not a destination, but well worth a look if you are in the area. If I recall correctly, there are over 3,000 buildings here, each faithfully represented in painstaking detail.

This was a family project that took its members several years to complete. It is a to-scale re-creation of the city. I read that it was "dusty" and needed work, but I didn't see that at all. They have a laser pointer available for help...More
