I guess you don't need a big space to house such tiny miniatures. But, honestly, I was expecting a little more. There some exhibits you look at through a magnifying glass and others you look at through a microscope. I generally found the microscope one to be more interesting. Although, I think the biggest drawback is that there was little... 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 is only 100 Crowns and the place is open from 9:00 AM -5:00 PM every... 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 wandered for 25 minutes in search of it. You will find yourself on the street... 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 so (100 CZK, or about $4). We loved it.

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 - calling each other over to see the next thing. When you arrive, you think you'll... 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 to behold. This museum was definitely worth finding and we loved it. The miniatures are... 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 worth the visit. 100 koruna per person and a great walk through town to get...

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
