We really enjoyed this place... yes its tiny.. a small room with around 30 displays.. but I think it works out about £3 each so hardly expensive and for the novelty factor its well worth visiting and seeing it! Some of the work is incredible... a zoo on a hair strand?!! I couldnt believe a lot of what I was... More

If you can manage it after the Castle, Loreta etc then this is worth 20 minutes of your time. The very small pictures aren't that interesting, BUT the actual miniatures are AMAZING.

The work exhibited is way out of this world.. The museum is a bit hard to find, and it's hidden somewhere at the top of some stairs.. The museum itself is small, don't expect to spend hours there, but the miniatures! Such a precision work. It is worth the shot!

I dunno. I felt I saw everything I needed to see in about 3 minutes. Do yourself a favor and just google the images.

A great museum with an interesting exposition. We liked it very much. too bad that the museum is of a miniature size as are the items there :)

I thought this would be right up my street so we got the tram to the area to try to find it. After much wandering around and asking locals we gave up and started to head back for the tram. We then spotted it and realised that we had passed it at least twice while we were searching! (It is... More

This small museum is set down a laneway just off Loreta square in the opposite direction from the castle. There is no directional signage so we had to ask a nearby hotel for directions. It amazes us that it gets any business. Inside were two rooms lined with microscopes and small containers. Each one contained a miraculously detailed object set... More

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...
