It is an amazing experience: the skill of the artists to create an entire caravan of camels that (truly) fit in the eye of a needle. Only with the aid of magnification can one truly appreciate the incredible creations: from a necklace and earrings on...More

This is a small museum and so worth a visit. It has such unusual and bizaar treasures and is very fascinating If you are in this beautiful town just spend an extra 40 minutes and visit. Such craftsman ship is a thing long gone

We went here mainly because our hotel had given us two for the price of one vouchers, but in fact the entrance fee is very reasonable anyway. The museum is small, and is separated into three rooms - Miniatures, mini-miniatures and micro miniatures. The miniatures...More
