Starting next month, you’ll be able to step into the nation’s largest display of miniatures, a 50,000-square-foot wonderland filled with tiny delights that include hundreds of replicas of famed buildings around the world.  

Gulliver’s Gate, opening next month in New York City’s Times Square, spans an entire city block and transports guests throughout Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, all through its whimsical and humorous miniature displays.

Created by model-makers from around the globe, the exhibit includes everything from Beijing’s Forbidden City to the destroyed Colossus of Rhodes in Greece, all 87 times smaller than their original size.

Travel + Leisure stopped in to get a glimpse of the interactive miniature world before it opens to the public on April 4 for a soft launch and on May 9 for the official grand opening. 

From a fully-functioning miniature airport to a scanner that lets you create a miniature version of yourself, here are some of the incredible sights you’ll find inside.
