This is a truly amazing place. I doubt you will believe there is anything in the carious exhibits until you look throughout the microscopes. How any of these exhibits was made amazes me. That they are all doe by one artist is truly fantastic. Put it on your Kiev visit itinerary

You will not believe your eyes. A man made rose on a stem put inside a hollowed out hair. And more. Museum is located with other seeworthy attractions. Be sure not to miss this!

This museum is small and unassuming, but inside you are greeted by a number of true masterpieces of human skill at finest mechanics. Each exhibit is shown under a magnifying glass, some of them would be hardly visible at all, so small is the tiniest book and some artwork exhibited here. It helps to have a Russian speaking friend with... More

On the ground of the Caves Monastery, and I knew nothing about the place until my guide mentioned it to me. It only takes 10 minutes of your time (although you're certainly free to spend more) and cost 10 hyrvnia (around 40 cents). The exhibits were really cool - I especially loved the chess board. Check it out, it's cheap... More

This unusual museum is on the Lavra grounds. It has a separate admission charge but is very low. The miniatures are viewed through magnifying glasses. Many are so small they cannot be seen with the naked eye. The building is an old style and the museum is old too but it is tastily done. The artwork on display has some... More

I actually enjoyed this place but was a strange place. I would like a little bit better presentation. Better microscopes etc. Go if you have nothing to do or are close by.

Come visit the Museum of Miniatures and see the masterpieces of the talented Mykola Siadrystyi. Siadrysyi was able to create fine-scale miniatures, some smaller than a poppy seed, with incredible detail and accuracy. The most popular work of Ukrainian master is a shoed flea which is made of gold. Its width is 60 microns (the diameter of a human hair).... More

A wee gem (nudge nudge) of a museum in Lavra - this was definitely unexpected and was a showcase of amazingly sculpted miniatures, some like 0.6 of a millimetre high! For a very low price you can marvel at some very detailed and expertly crafted pieces of art that would have taken ages to make. Everything from a rose sculpted... More

I thought this was cool, even though it was only one room. It was very interesting. I really didn't care for paying to get into this after I already paid to enter the site.

Located in the grounds of the Pechersk Lavra, this is a must-see visit. Entrance fee of 20 hryvnnia (about 50 pence at Apr 15 rate) on top of the Lavra entrance fee. You would be foolish to miss this awe-inspiring exhibition. I first visited in 2001. It is still as jaw-droppingly impressive now as it was then. Very, very, very... More
