This guy was probably a lunatic, but so charismatic! You won't believe your eyes!!! The word "tiny" is incapable of describing how tiny indeed are these miniatures. Go and take a look through the microscopes and the magnifying glasses! Surprise and awe are waiting!

This museum is definitely a quick trip in and out. It is cheap and accessible easily by transit. The detail and precision put into this museum is most likely over looked by most tourists but it is extremely cool. It is located above the palace so you can walk down for lunch or a beer overlooking the city afterward.

Firstly, it's not actually a museum - just a small room with lots of microscopes and magnifying glasses dotted around. It really is the cutest place. Tickets were only 50Kč for students. We loved it because it's pretty much hidden away and so small (just like the miniatures!) It's just a cute and slightly different thing to do.

Located in the Monastery near the castle this small museum is a must see for people who like seeing something a bit different and alternative. Well worth the small cost (about £3) due to the fact you probably won't see anything like this again.

If you enjoy quirky curiosities, this museum is worth your time. The miniature art work was fascinating and we were amazed that it was even possible. It is a small museum and will take your 20 minutes or less!

This is a very small museum devoted to miniatures (camel caravan in needle eye, portraits on poppyseeds, etc). You can do the whole thing in 15 minutes. A good rainy day option if you need one, but otherwise you might want to skip it. A 100kc admission fee applies.

We planned ahead to come visit this museum, but unfortunately it was much smaller than we anticipated. Each piece was amazing to look at, with such fine detail, so we would recommend it to anybody who thinks they may enjoy this sort of thing. We finished the entire museum in about 15 minutes, which was a bit disappoint, as we... More

Really enjoyed spending some time out of the rain in here. Amazing miniature, microscopic art. Would definitely recommend popping in. Couple of minutes walk from Prague Castle. Great value at only £3 per person.

Very interesting and great value for money. Fantastic museum to combine with your monastery visit. Easy to find right across the road from the monastery and staff very polite and friendly.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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.
