 Highlights
 
TIVOLI IN MINIATURE. In a 160-foot-long area, children can sail paper boats made for them by kindergarten nurses in attendance, whisk down a dipsy-doodle slide, explore a maze, play in a giant sandbox and climb about a Forbidden House where they can peek through a huge keyhole, stamp on the floors, or take a turn at a ship's helm. The playground was created by experts who designed the original in Copenhagen.
A children's cafe' adjoining the playground has seats shaped like birds and features Danish treats in child-sized portions. When the youngsters finish eating or playing, they can wash up in two restrooms built specially for children.
EXHIBIT PROMENADE. Fine Danish products - toys, dinnerware, glassware, cutlery, furniture - are for sale. A "hall of fame" pictures some famous Danes of history, including storyteller Hans Christian Andersen and Niels Bohr, father of atomic energy.
RESTAURANTS. Pastries, made on the premises by bakers brought over from Denmark, and other Danish foods are served in two dining areas. The Kattegat Inn serves Danish coffee and pastry, as well as specialties of various Danish provinces, and fish flown in from the Baltic and North Sea fishing beds. The Restaurant Denmark caters to gourmets with a "Grand Cold Table."
