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

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.
