A small museum, but the pieces themselves are incredible and worth the price of admission. No information outside of a blurry sheet of paper about the artist. Would be great to know more about how they were created.

This museum is very impressive and sculpting on a hair strand, poppy seed or mosquito wing clearly requires great skill, patience and time! For me the gold cup, Eiffel Tower and car were the most eye-catching pieces- the detail was phenomenal. If you’re in the...More

This small museum was one of the highlights of our trip to Prague. The items are exquisite, all displayed under microscopes. It's simply an amazing, unique display of things like gold "horseshoes" fitting a mosquito, beautiful scenes carved into seeds, and the like. It is...More

Really not worth the price, we went round it in 10 mins and it cost far too much for what it was. Yes it was all fascinating but the price was way too high

We stumbled upon this very unusual and quirky museum in the courtyard of the Strahov Monastery. The museum is very small, consisting of two rooms, with about 30 or so exhibits, most of which were by the truly amazing Siberian micro-miniature artist Anatoly Konenko. With...More

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.

Hi there, I was hoping for a little advice. We'll be visiting Prague at the end of the month and I'm currently a bit overwhelmed with the choice of what to do! We've got 4 days and so far I was thinking; Day 1 - Prague Castle, Museum of Miniatures, Karel Zeman Museum, Charles Bridge Day 2 - Petrin Hill, Kingdom of Railways Day 3 - City of Prague Museum, National Museum, Winceslas Square Day 4 - Old Town Square, Lego Museum, Museum of Chocolate, Toy Museum, Imaginarium Obviously...More

national museum is still closed (at least the main building on wenceslass square) you could go to the new building which is pretty much next door, but i think national technical museum has better exhibitions then this building (imo)

Hi there, My husband and I are visiting Prague shortly for our wedding anniversary, we are staying for 2 nights but arriving at 10am on Monday (day 1) and not leaving till 3pm on Weds (day 3). We will be going around the city on foot. We are looking to put together a bohemian tour of oddities and curiosities(!) with some local food and drink tasting :) There is so much to see and choose from and we are not sure what will be the best use of our time. These are some of the attractions...More

I would recommend the Invisible Exhibition, where the visually impaired guides show you the world of the blind. They also throw dinners in the dark. Taste of Prague tour might also be interesting, though probably not necessary. Look at use-it.travel and download the Prague map. These maps are made by the locals and include tips on where to go, especially useful regarding the food. I'm sure the others will write plenty of other tips. Enjoy your trip
