The technic was obviously very high. The shoes for flea was the most impressive and interesting one. However, I think the art for small is not as impressive as large one such as large pictures and architectures. As a result, this is enough for me to visit one time.

Very impressive pieces of work, but don't expect anything extraordinary from the venue. Quite small room with limited information in English. I don't think they redecorated it since the 80s.

However small the exhibit, it is mindblowing to see the miniatures. What about a chessboard with all the pieces on it, at the size of a pin head. Visited it twice, and was lucky to meet the artist, how coincidentally visited when we were there. When we complimented him on his work, he asked us where we were from. When we told him that we are from the Netherlands, he smiled and just said: "Ah, Rembrandt." Made my day.

Not what we expected and were totally blown away. The trip to the caves monastery is well worth the time and while you are there you must see this exhibition. Only takes about 15 -20 minutes but you will see some things that you'll remember for a long time. A little bit hard to find, in behind the belltower.

We (a couple) were lucky enough to visit this museum (located on the territory of Kiev Pechersk Lavra) before closing. We are talking about the huge line that you need to stand in in order to get into the museum. However, after 10-20 minutes you don't regret anymore that you were waiting for it.

We really liked the process of visiting. There were around 20 microscopes with miniatures, and people were checking them one by one standing in line. As a result, there were noone, who could take your place and disturb you.

There was also a little bit annoying woman, who was in charge of the room. She was screaming to everyone and bust people, who took pictures, or blamed "men not to be responsible for their kids."

The miniatures themelves were very impressive! There was the smallest book in the world and other impressive tiny objects such as micro portrait and micro chess on the head of the pin!

The entrance cost around 1 euro per person. However, in order to enter this museum, you also need to buy entrance ticket for the whole monastery area. But it is also cheap and will not cost more than 1 euro.
