“Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Small, yes, but how much space does one need to put a portrait half the size of a poppy seed on display. Worth a quick look if you like the quirky

“No exploitation, could be much better.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is in a small building with 2 rooms showing off the exhibits. Of which you view through a magnifying glass or a microscope. It cost 70 kr to get in and we were finished in less than 30 minutes. Yes they are fantastic to look at. However what would have made it worth while was some explanation of how they made the exhibits, for example the tools they used, how long they took to make, what nationality the makers were etc. There is no writing apart from a little bit of card next to each item with a few words telling you what it is. This appears in a few different languages.

You do get a good view of the whole city from around the corner to the museum, so good photo opportunity.

“Amazing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Thought rather small, a museum features a nice collection of amazing miniatures like a golden samovar the size of the sugar crystal or an Eiffel Tower in a cherrystone. A price could be a little more modest, yet it is totally worth it.

“small, but what would you expect?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This museum is awesome. Everything on display needs to be seen with a magnifying glass or microscope, including (for instance) the camel caravan going through the eye of the needle, and the gold horseshoes on the flea. We were the only ones there when we visited. comparable to the Agassiz Glass Flower Museum at Harvard as a fascinating monument to an artisan's obsession with detail. Don't miss.

“Amazingly small, also the Museum itself!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Agree! It is fantastic it could be made and the man who did it sometimes used several years to make one small miniature. But really not worth walking up the hill in order to find it in the garden of the old Closter.
The museum has only 2 very small rooms. There are not very many exhibits. It cost however "only" 70 Czk per person to enter.
The man who take care of the museum is not very informative and all in all it is a very average, but different, experience.
However, we were 4 persons, and 2 found it totally amazing, and 2 found it not really worth using time on.
