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

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 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

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.
