This unusual museum is on the Lavra grounds. It has a separate admission charge but is very low. The miniatures are viewed through magnifying glasses. Many are so small they cannot be seen with the naked eye. The building is an old style and the...More

I actually enjoyed this place but was a strange place. I would like a little bit better presentation. Better microscopes etc. Go if you have nothing to do or are close by.

Seriously, if you have the opportunity to spend a few minutes looking at a flea with golden shoes, or a chessboard on the head of a pin, or a human hair turned into a bud vase, isn't it worth it? This museum offers the added...More
