Stop by and visit the museum if you happen to be walking near the Strahov Monastery above Prague Castle. Amazing works of art so miniature that you'll use either a magnifying glass or a microscope to see the tiny works of art. Very cheap and...More

The Museum of Miniatures is a small museum (with about 30 tiny works of art) and is located near the Strahov monastery on the western side of the Vltava River. To get there from central Prague take tram 22 to Pohořelec station. The admission price...More

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the miniature (read: microscopic) pieces of art in this museum - the exhibit is fascinating and amazing. However, my main goal in writing this review is to hopefully help you find the darned place, as my friend and I...More

It's a small but a must see museum. All the pieces are unbelievable. I was shocked in a perfect way by the art that I could experience here.

Imagine the Eiffel Tower rendered in meticulous detail inside a cherry pit, or the Lord's Prayer written along the length of a human hair! This museum is very well done, if small. You can see it in 30 minutes, and it's not costly to do...More

Even though I had read reviews of this not-so-easy-to-find place, I still just thought it was going to be a museum of miniature art. I didn't realize it was going to be MICROSCOPIC art. My friend and I were absolutely gobsmacked at every microscope -...More

Enjoyable and inexpensive, only cost 100kc. Would be interesting for art lovers. Would recommend to old or young. Easy to get to.

A short walk from Prague Castle, this tiny museum is a little hard to find (it s just through an alley) but is well worth it. For about £1 you can spend some time looking through microscopes at some very small carvings that are beautiful...More

Where else can you see a flea with a horseshoe on, holding a purse and scissors? Or the world's smallest microbook (it's legible!)? It doesn't take more than half an hour to check out these jaw-dropping pieces, all through magnifying glasses, but it's more than...More

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
