Despite of its uniqueness and the interesting exhibits that are displayed in this museum, it is out of place with regards to Czech history and city of Prague and Strachov monastery in particular. I wish to see the items that at least have some connection to Czech republic and not only to the history of Russia. In this these turbulent... More

Yes, the whole time you spend here may be only 20 mins but its so different! We have never seen anything like this before and we are not sure if we can ever see something like this again. It's a very small place right next to monastery brewery and across from the monastery. It's worth trying!

We came here as I had read about this place in a guide book and was intrigued. Horseshoes on a flea? It had to be seen! We weren't disappointed, the exhibits in this museum were excellent, we'd never seen anything of the likes of it before! The museum is only small so you shouldn't need more than half an hour... More

It is amazing to see what can be created with such simple materials and in such a way that you can only see them through microscope, it is really extraordinary!

This is a very small museum but then it's artifacts are minuscule. I found the ticket price worth it based on the novelty of gazing at works of art so small, and each one handmade. It took us a few minutes to find it, it was basically around the back of where the gps kept taking us to, so keep... More

To be honest was expecting this to be a slightly bigger museum. The items on show are very well created and you do need the magnifiers to see that majority of thins. The items with the microscopes are a lot easier to view than the ones with the hand held glasses. We only stayed in there for less than 15... More

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... More

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... More

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.
