The park consists of about 350 buildings and landmarks, 30,000 figures, 500 animals, plants and 15,000 real trees, 4,700 cars, 100 motorbikes, 14 trains, 3 helicopters, 32 aircraft, 175 ships and 230 trucks. All trees are real bonsai cultivated and planted by Agronoy nursery. The park is loosely shaped like a star of David, with each of the six triangles representing an area or city: Jerusalem; Tel Aviv; Haifa; Galil; Negev; Center.
Most of the buildings were built in the scale of 1:25. Exceptions are Nahalal – 1:250; Orot Rabin power station – 1:50; walls of Jerusalem and Acre reduced to 1:50 leaving their height at 1:25; Knesset Menorah – 1:15.
The models are made of polyurethane or similar polymeric materials, and small stones. They were painted with waterproof paint for resistance to weather conditions. Many of the models include kinetic moving parts such as trains, planes, a soccer game, heavy equipment, boats, etc.
In addition to displaying miniature building replicas, Mini Israel also offers a wide range of activities on Saturdays and holidays for children such as a multimedia room, simulator, craft corner, floor games and a jamboree for toddlers.
