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.

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!

This place is cool for a half an hour activity out of your day, fascinating little minatures that are hard to believ. Don't expect a big museum, just a small place, We were 2 of only 4 people in there, we went round and had a good look at everything twice. If passing definately recommend for a quick smile. :)

The miniature items are so minute you have a microscope to view each item. Well worth the visit and easy to reach.

This place is small but well worth the entrance fee. The miniatures are really cool to watch through the microscope. I can recommend this place if you are in the neighborhood.

This museum had fantastic pieces of art scaled down so small that you needed a microscope to see them! some of the models were done on a poppy seed or a needle or even a hair! The museum was quirky and a lot of fun

This may be the smallest museum you ve ever visited but its worth every bit of the 100czk entrance fee. There are about 30 microscopes through which you can see amongst other things a flea with horse shoes and a picture on a poppy seed, you have to see it to believe it! The museum is situated near the monastry... More

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

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.
