Tiny place so combine it was a visit to the caves. But really unique and interesting experience just a shame there isn't more of it.

Seriously, if you have the opportunity to spend a few minutes looking at a flea with golden shoes, or a chessboard on the head of a pin, or a human hair turned into a bud vase, isn't it worth it? This museum offers the added attraction of poetry to accompany each piece, which adds to its charm.

This is an amazing museum the likes of which I have not seen in any other place. It is well worth finding in the Lavra Museum and only takes a few minutes to go through. The different pieces are amazing to see through the microscopes. The items are beautiful besides the incredible amount of work that must have been needed... More

The micro-miniatures are the must see if you are in Kiev. The extraordinary guy who makes them (Mykola Syadristy) may also be on site, which is an extra bonus.

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
