An extremely good experience. A must-see visit. Although the museum is fairly small there are over 2,000 miniature items in various glass cases and you could spend half an hour/one hour looking at them.

Not a large museum but worth a visit. Incredible miniature artwork, like the camels in the eye of the needle or the tiny ships on a fly’s wing.

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

A very small museum of small things. Asthonishing miniatures, next to less impressive, but nicely made puppet houses. Nor a lot, but more than enough to pay a visit with childern.
