When you enter the small museum, located in the area of the monastery, you have the impression that in that small room there would be only half a dozen things to see. That was our first mistake. There's not thousands of objects being exhibited, maybe only a hundred, but you will be amazed by any one of them. The second mistake is that we were expecting miniatures like small toys or model houses and so. Nope. What they mean miniature is REALLY miniaturized. You will see a fly with a tiny little scissor and other microscopic metal objects in its many hands. A metal car standing on a mosquito leg and other similar amazing things. So tiny that you will have to use either a magnifier or a microscope to see them. It worth the price.

We loved this little gem a lot! Sailing boat on the wing of a mosquito, swan lake on a poppy-seed, Pushkin portrait on a rice seed, train on a hair, camel caravan in the needle eye..... Looking through the magnifying lense we kept repeating: "oh my god!" Just as the lady arrived a few minutes after us :)
Entrance fee is 100 kc pp. It is 5 minutes walk to Loreta, 10 to Hradčanské námesti. Do not miss it!

A nice and unique experience. This museum is located near the Strahov Monastery and even though it is very small the exhibits are very interesting and some of them amusing. Of interest is the smallest book and a flee with scissors and other instruments.

This museum may not be large but it's pretty amazing! The tiny artworks are good but the miniature objects are simply incredible!

Maybe not the best value ticket - we were in there less than 10 minutes, but it won't break the bank and it's certainly worth it for the quirkiness.

This is one of the most interesting things we did in Prague. If you are up the the monastery, don't miss this.
