A short walk from Prague Castle, this tiny museum is a little hard to find (it s just through an alley) but is well worth it. For about £1 you can spend some time looking through microscopes at some very small carvings that are beautiful to behold. This museum was definitely worth finding and we loved it. The miniatures are... More

Where else can you see a flea with a horseshoe on, holding a purse and scissors? Or the world's smallest microbook (it's legible!)? It doesn't take more than half an hour to check out these jaw-dropping pieces, all through magnifying glasses, but it's more than worth the visit. 100 koruna per person and a great walk through town to get...

The location is a little way from most of the other main attractions of Prague but you can walk there (or better still ride the funicular and walk from the top station). It is in fact located next to the monastery, and once you know that you can find it easily. The exhibits leave you quite simply stunned and I... More

We were the only visitors in this fantastic museum and we all enjoyed it very much. Amazing how the miniatures was made and well deserved that the miniatures are in Guiness Book of Records - stunning work and a must see in Prague 😃

Dla mnie rewelacja. Kilkanascie eksponatów - w wresji milimetrowej, które trzeba oglądać przez mikroskop albo za pomoca lupy. Ticket - 100 koron. Ale warto. // A revelation to me. More than a dozen exhibits - millimeter version, which you have to watch through a microscope or with the help of a magnifying glass. Ticket - 100 crowns. But worth.

You will not find anything like this anywhere else. The art is carved into toothpicks and the like. This is a must see if you are in Prague and enjoy art.

I stayed in a hotel next door so it was easy to visit. It didn't took more than 15-20 minutes to see the exhibit, but definately worth visiting and the CZK 100 entrance fee. If you are not staying in the area, take tram 22 to Pohořelec stop. You can visit Strahov monastery at the same time.

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.

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.
