Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Advance warning, this museum is cash only!!
The miniature museum is very small (ha!) and not worth going unless you're already in the area.
It's a handful of exhibits of, admittedly very very good, miniature artwork. 10 minute visit maximum.
That said, the exhibits really are good, and very tiny. There's just not very many of them.

Very small museum, interesting to see all the tiny miniature works. Would say this only serves as a very short visit, 30 mins max, mainly because there is nothing to read about the works! It needs some more information about how each was actually made, and maybe a display showing something being made in action.

While interesting to see these miniatures, they are quite few spread across two rooms. This will only take 20 minutes or so. Do pass by if you are in the area, but I wouldn't get out of my way to reach it.

The work displayed here is absolutely mind blowing! Words can’t describe how spectacular these works are. A caravan of camels within the eye of a needle?! A full train on a hair?! The works are phenomenal however the museum space was lackluster and a lot of questions went unanswered as much information was not in English (though this is my English speaking fault)

We were impressed of how interesting this museum was.All the exhibits were very interesting and you can something not very usual. The lady at the museum was very kind and helpful. Maybe the price of 6 euros is a bit more than we would expect.

Eventually found this museum - in the monastery grounds. Was worth the hunt! Very small museum. However, amazing tiny works of art by micro-miniaturist Konenko. A row of camels through the eye of a needle, a very detailed train on a strand of hair and portrait of Chekhov on a poppy seed - just incredible. Apparently he had to work between heartbeats as work so intricate. I would have liked to know more about the artist Konenko. There was only an A4 sheet of paper with very brief explanations. I wanted more about the artist and history behind his work. In my opinion this very small museum could be much improved with very little effort.

Very very small place (I hesitated to pay when I saw that it was so small), however impressive kind of art is presented there ! I still don’t understand how to make these miniatures was possible...

130 CZK (about 5 euros or 7 CAD) to enter and its two very small rooms with about 35 things to look at. Certainly the miniatures are well done and it’s crazy to think about how they were created so small but it’s just not worth the admission.

The size of it surprised me, holding about 20 exhibits of miniart. Takes about 10 minutes to go over it all, in addition to the 130kr entrance fee, plus the drag of getting there from central Prague - sums up to a pretty mediocre experience. In short - nice but not worth your time and money.
