I went here beacuse I'm courious... The museum is inside the "Lavra area" in Kiev city Centre. Is so beautiful look inside the microscope to see so small gold things. This artist is a genius! Lovable!

It's a small museum inside the Lavra complex containing less than 20 miniatures. but each it's an amazement of industriosity and tiny details: a tiny galeon, a book. It's no more than 20 minutes but worth a stop while in Lavra.

I thought it was interesting but not amazing. For a few Euro its interesting to see the miniatures with the extreme details but it seemed dated. Maybe it was the style of the room that seemed so horribly plain that would drag down the exhibits. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Something to see in the Lavra complex.

located within the Pechersk Lavra, this tiny museum showcases about 10 actual miniature items of its type which seems very uncommon elsewhere in the world. worth seeing as it is part of the Pechersk Lavra UNESCO world heritage site. Photographing is almost impossible

I liked the artwork impressive property. With amazing creation of man made creations past several centuries. Beautifully designed rooms. I disliked the time to get in due to huge queue.

The technic was obviously very high. The shoes for flea was the most impressive and interesting one. However, I think the art for small is not as impressive as large one such as large pictures and architectures. As a result, this is enough for me to visit one time.

Very impressive pieces of work, but don't expect anything extraordinary from the venue. Quite small room with limited information in English. I don't think they redecorated it since the 80s.

However small the exhibit, it is mindblowing to see the miniatures. What about a chessboard with all the pieces on it, at the size of a pin head. Visited it twice, and was lucky to meet the artist, how coincidentally visited when we were there. When we complimented him on his work, he asked us where we were from. When... More

Not what we expected and were totally blown away. The trip to the caves monastery is well worth the time and while you are there you must see this exhibition. Only takes about 15 -20 minutes but you will see some things that you'll remember for a long time. A little bit hard to find, in behind the belltower.

We (a couple) were lucky enough to visit this museum (located on the territory of Kiev Pechersk Lavra) before closing. We are talking about the huge line that you need to stand in in order to get into the museum. However, after 10-20 minutes you don't regret anymore that you were waiting for it. We really liked the process of... More
