Gulliver's Gate NYC Reviews

This was a fun experience for us as seniors. It’s suitable for all ages. We knew this wasn’t about Gulliver’s Travels but about models of cities throughout the world. Hence the name. It’s much more than a viewing exhibit. There are plenty of moving pieces, keys to turn, and sounds to recognize. If you're a traveler, see it. If you love searching for Waldo and small hidden - yet out in the open - pieces, come. If you connect with train sets, this is for you! Know that there are guides to get help from as well as children while you search for things listed in the brochure and plenty more that aren’t. Bring your eyeglasses and cameras. The exhibit remains a work in progress (I don’t want to give details). Don’t miss the airport! Look for discount tickets so you can go a second time!

I have always been fascinated with miniatures and even built my daughter a dollhouse when she was 9.I had read about this exhibit a few years ago and was excited to finally be able to visit it The attention to details is astounding and almost looks as if the exhibits were shrunken to fit the space rather than being built by hand. There are interactive exhibits and a scavenger hunt map that was fun. The exhibit is a delight for the eyes. There is great representation for 5 continents and no exhibit for Antarctica and Egypt is the only representation of the African continent. There is a small African watering hole exhibit at the entrance. There is an airport with planes landing and taking off. I would not recommend this for children under age 5 as there were toddlers running around and I noticed some of the kids touching exhibits. This is not a playground. We were there over 2 hours and I could have stayed longer as each exhibit as a myriad of mall details(chickens in a yard, people doing the tango, people on their balconies reading the paper, ) Just amazing. The only disappointment is the very poorly planned book store. I was really shocked to find a book with photos of the exhibit for calendars, no postcards...mainly T-shirts. There is also the possibility to purchase a true to life model of yourself for a very high fee. I think many patrons would purchase a book or postcards.
