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.

Trully a miniature museum ;)
Feb 2020
Another museum in Prague that has some great exhibits but turns out to be ~30 minute quickie. If you take it slow. Price is not steep so I think you get decent value for your money. That is because there is some very unique artwork, like strain of camels sculpted on a mosquitoe's wing or

Interesting museum
Dec 2019
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.

Should've gone to Specsavers

Were aiming to look round the monastery but it wasn't open to the public so popped in to this small (of course) museum of miniatures.Fascinating to focus on whole ships, trains,written scripts, scenic views and parades of varied animals painted (don't know HOW), on grains of rice, mosquito wings, fleas leg etc. worth the patience to focus carefully and take the time to ponder, wonder and appreciate these perfect miniature art works.

Fascinating
Aug 2019 • Family
This small museum is really worth a visit. Around the edges of a room are various items that are so small you need to look through a microscope to see but are fascinating - the flea with the golden horseshoes was my favourite but I found all really interesting and went around them more than once. The museum is right at the top of the hill by the monastery.

Worth it absolutely undoubtably

Fascinating, interesting and absolutely mind boggling:
We had an very long and very hot walk here from Prague castle, but oh boy it was worth it, such a fascinating hidden gem in Prague!
The reception left much to be desired, barely meeting our eye when we entered and going as far as to lean backwards on her chair and block access to 2 of the prices whilst we were there, but never mind

Flea with a golden horseshoe!
May 2019 • Friends
It is true it doesn't take long to walk around and some are a little faded but it is a very different place to go and as it is based in a beautiful monastery and close to spectacular viewing point and then a short walk to the look out tower (mini Eiffel) and then on again to the Funicular railway it is a worthwhile little diversion. You an literately see a camel in the eye of a needle.

The detail is amazing but only needs a short visit
Mar 2019 • Couples
This museum is filled with the smallest exhibits you could find. We were amazed by the detail that has been achieved however it takes about 15 minutes to look at them & then you’re done.
Some of the tiny pictures are becoming faded - the literature states they rotate the exhibits so maybe we got a bad batch.
You really can’t believe the work to achieve these tiny pieces

Super Small (just 1 room), but approriate, right?
Feb 2019 • Couples
Will only take you 20-30 minutes at most, but a fascinating collection and worth the visit. Then, visit the nearby monastery restaurant/brewery for good food & beer, with fantastic views out over Prague!

Interesting Museum, not very welcoming.
Dec 2018 • Couples
My partner and I enjoyed looking around the museum, it is fascinating and definitely different. However we were not met with a particularly warm welcome. The lady behind the counter made us feel like we were being a pain by coming in, she didn't acknowledge us at all and didn't even stop her conversation to take our money. One visit was enough.
