This is a very small museum on premises of former Strahov monastery. It's completely unrelated to the monastery and features some works of a Russian craftsman who advanced a technology for miniature works. It's interesting peculiarity and the kid of 3.5 years was duly amused by all the looking into microscopes.

Combine it with your Prague Castle or Strahof Monastery visit and you won't be disappointed. Personally I don't know if there's a similar museum anywhere else in Europe and I admired the talent and dedication of the artist. The exhibits are unbelievable and include a camel caravan in a needle eye, a praying written on a hair, the eiffer tower... More

Intrigued, while visiting Strahov monastery we spotted this unique museum and decided to have a look. Around 25 miniatures, you view through magnifying glasses or microscopes, it is fascinating when you consider the amount of work that goes into creating the "masterpieces". I would love to meet the man behind the creations, a real eccentric I'm sure!

It is an exciting idea and brilliantly executed but unfortunately the museum is extremely small. It is basically a collection of about 30 items in a room. They should rename it from museum to a small collection. It contains very small items such a rice grain or an insect under microscopes where the artist has used them as canvas to... More

Probably asks more questions than any museum. A guy can sculpture 10 camels, 2 palm trees and two people and put it all in the eye of a sewing needle, or hang 5 ornaments off the feet of a flea. WHY..! No matter, it's extremely clever and the time it takes to perfect the skill is mind blowing. Well worth... More

Even if it's short and the shop/ museum is quite small. I was fascinated by it! Took loads of photos and spent a good hour trying to focus my shots. It's astounding how much detail goes into these miniature trinkets. Wish I could buy something as small yet with so much detail as a souvenir.

Came up here to visit the Strahov Monestary for a taste of beer, saw this place, got all excited and realised it was closed, the let down and disappointment was sore, because I am really into all that kind of stuff.

We found this museum as a suggestion in a random guide. It wasn't mentioned anywhere else we had looked. What a pity!! This is probably one of the best places we visited during our trip to Prague. Something so unique that is definitely worth a visit! You can go there either on the day you visit the Castle or the... More

Spent a great 30-45 minutes in here browsing the miniature designs thru a microscope,its actually extraordinary how the artists have managed to create these works.Mind blowing how much painstaking effort some of the exhibits must have been! Worth a visit when visiting the monastery nearby if you have a spare hour. Worth the entrance fee,a hidden gem!

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
