Like an old train carriage

Easy enough to find this and it’s under a cliff that has other historic items. Small entry fee and everything is miniature.

Unexpected delight.
Jul 2020 • Couples
We visited this museum purely by chance and it was delightful. The exhibits are extraordinary and the museum is clean, the staff friendly and at only €3 per person an absolute bargain. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic exhibits

Really cute little museum, some amazing exhibits, mind blowing to think how some of them were made! Well worth the €3 entry, plus the entrance fee goes towards supporting mental health charities, so win win! It doesn’t take too long to do so it won’t take up too much time if you don’t have long to spend in Mijas. Definitely would recommend this.

This is an excellent collection of interesting miniatures. For only 3 Euro it's worth checking out. The paintings and carvings that are on display are beautiful. Information is displayed in 4 languages.

Small but interesting.
Jul 2019 • Couples
I wouldn't call this a museum, more a fascinating exhibition. It costs a very reasonable 3 euro to see the exhibits. Each is well displayed with a strategically placed fixed magnifying glass to see the wonders. Sculpted grains of rice, decorated pin heads, micro paintings etc, even a shrunken human head. The young lady in the ticket office offered to take us round, but there is no need as everything is clearly labeled and described. Only takes 15 to 20 minutes to see it all, but worthwhile.

Amazing

This was amazing, set up in a train carriage. This is well set up as though they have really thought about displaying these tiny treasures, take your time and your reading glasses if you need them.

It’s A Small World After All!
Feb 2019 • Couples
While I was originally skeptical regarding this museum, I was ultimately very pleased to have visited. Some of the exhibits were truly amazing and had to literally be seen to be believed. For example, there are the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World carved on a toothpick and a portrait of Abraham Lincoln painted on a grain of rice. (The only off-putting exhibit was of a shrunken head - said to be a Caucasian - from the Amazon basin.) The exhibits are very well displayed and lit. There is a discount for senior admittance. Worth a visit.

IF YOU'VE SEEN ONE, YOU'VE SEEN THEM ALL

Small exhibit of even smaller items. Some (like things written on a grain of rice) you have to use their magnifying glass to see. Similar to setups like this in many other places, so if you've been to one, I'd skip this visit.

So small, but impressive!
Nov 2018 • Couples
We visited this small museum while strolling unto the streets in Mijas. Not expensive at all and most intriguing. Each display is impressive, how you can take the smallest thing and paint on it...most impressive.
