    History of the Gulliver’s Gate

    The museum opened in 2017 and is the brainchild of the Israeli Eiran Gazit. He is an ardent lover of miniature designs and the founder of Mini Israel. The project to start the miniature museum began in 2014 when Grazit and co-developer Michael Langer set out to get investors for the ambitious project.

    Gulliver’s Gate cost 40 million dollars to set up at Times Square. New York. At its inception, it had over 300 miniature scenes from over 50 countries. Many developers worked on building these pieces from different parts of the world before assembling them in the final location in New York. Almost all UNESCO World Heritage sites are in the Museum, such as Mecca, the Kremlin, Taj Mahal, and Panama Canal.
