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

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.

Even though we were with an organised tour, we had a free day here at Mijas.

The Visitor Information Centre is always the quintessential, first place to stop while visiting a new Town or region.

The brochures and maps provided are in a variety of languages including English.

There is also another known and recognisable tourist attraction beside the tourism office – the bronze statue in honour of the Mijas donkey.

This was financed by the local Lions Club and unveiled late February 2011.

The Donkey taxi has become synonymous with Mihas, as has the tourists, taking their photos while sitting on the monument.

I've lived nearby for years and finally visited the museum. It's a marvel and so worth more than one visit.

Went in this museum on a whim as we were sat outside taking a break form walking. It's not a big place as it seems to be housed in an old railway carriage, however the exhibit are the kind of thing I've never seen in a museum before such as Abraham Lincoln's head painted in a pinhead and a shrunken head! €3 to get in, which apparently goes towards helping mental health patients. A very interesting visit.

Ok, for some reason, as a kid, the idea of a flea circus always intrigued me. Now, this museum does not offer a flea circus but it does offer a pair of fleas dressed as a bride and groom which at this point in my life will suffice.
In addition there are many other miniature items to peer at through the provided magnifying glasses and cause you to scratch your head in wonder. The two 10 year olds in our group loved it and the 5 adults were bemused and entertained.
A fun ending to a good day in the lovely town of Mijas. Also, I believe, the proceeds form the museum support a children’s charitable organization.

The Museum of Miniaturas is well worth a visit. €3 entrance fee with the profits going to mental health charities cost you more than that for pint

Takes about 20 minutes to view all the exhibits which are well displayed, most having to be observed through a magnifying glass or microscope some great are great way to spend 20 minutes

Well worth the couple of euros entry for this quaint museum of miniature items.
Paintings on pin heads and grains of rice etc.
It's really quirky and worth 20 minutes of your time.
Recommended.

Our party of four were amazed by the variety and quality of creativity on display inside this underpublicized little gem.

It also looks like they are regularly adding new exhibits as people seek to out-do each other on the level of detail they can carve out of a stick of chalk, or reproduce on a pinhead.
