Park Regulations

We want everyone to enjoy their visit to Madurodam. To ensure the park is a great place to visit, we have put a few rules and regulations in place. Our staff are authorised to remove from the park any individuals who openly disregard or fail to comply with these rules and regulations; individuals removed in this way have no right to compensation.


The same rules apply to our car park as on public roads. To prevent disruption to the flow of traffic, you must follow the instructions of our parking attendants. If you fail to (properly) follow the traffic regulations and/or instructions, we reserve the right to remove your vehicle from the car park at your own risk and cost.

Please ensure that your vehicle is properly locked and that you have not left any valuables in it. We accept no responsibility for theft or vandalism caused to your vehicle.


Entry to the park is at your own risk, and is permitted only with a valid admission ticket. You must keep your admission ticket with you at all times while visiting the park, and show it to our staff on request. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. There must be at least one responsible adult for every four children.

The admission ticket is valid on the day of issue, or for the period specified. The right to admission expires on leaving the park.

Madurodam has a restricted capacity and so we may ask you come back at another time to ensure that Madurodam is a great experience for everyone.

On site

We reserve the right to refuse entry to or to remove individuals who fail to comply with the park regulations, who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, who disturb public order and/or who cause wilful damage within the park. It is under all circumstances at the discretion of our own personnel to determine what constitutes the situations above.  


In Madurodam a smoking ban applies in all buildings and outside areas, with the exception that smoking is only permitted on the designated part of the terrace of restaurant Taste of Holland next to the toilet entrance.

Liability on the part of visitors

We would like to remind all parents, adults accompanying children and group leaders that they are responsible for the conduct of the individuals visiting the park under their supervision.

Parents are responsible for the behaviour of and any damage caused by their children. If you organise a meeting or event with us, or arrange a group visit, you are responsible and liable for the conduct of and any damage caused by these visitors (in addition to their own liability).

Our liability

Should you suffer any damage during your visit to our park, please let us know before you leave. You are not entitled to claim compensation if you report damage after you have left the park.

We accept liability for material or personal damage and injury only in circumstances where such damage is the consequence of a failing attributable to Madurodam, or of wilful or gross negligence on our part.  Liability claims will be assessed by our liability insurance provider. Our liability is limited to compensation for the immediate damage and up to the maximum level of damage for which we are insured.


We maintain our park with the utmost care, and expect our visitors to behave appropriately. Nevertheless, you may come across things that you find less agreeable, in which case we ask you to report this to us.
