This was yet another stupid little Andorran museum we felt obliged to visit. It's not as if Andorra is known for miniatures! There should be a Smuggling and Brigandry Museum. That would be real.

I stumbled upon this beautifully presented museum in Ordino, Andorra and was fascinated by it. The introductory videos set the scene well and the microscope based display of minute pieces of art is incredible. It is hard to rationalise just how these pieces of art...More

This museum is small, but where it excels is some lovely, amazing miniatures that can be viewed through microscopes. Really quite amazing things from signatures on the tip of a human hair, though to the pyramids of Giza with a caravan of camels inside the...More

This is a wonderful museum that was advertised on a billboard and we took the bus up to Ordino to visit it. Incredible, amazing and more. No one else there but us and the lady was friendly. We would definitely go again.

If you are into quirky stuff go on "alternative" tour with Sandemans (or similar). They show you the non-traditional side of the city, graffiti murals, squatters, etc. My son went with Sandemans, was quite happy. You may find someone else.
