It took me several minutes to orient myself to what I was seeing. The microminiatures are absolutely amazing. We were in a hurry and spent only about 30 minutes in the museum, but I could have stayed for much longer!

Wonderful little treasure trove of a museum. The place itself is really dated and may not look like much, but the works are definitely timeless and pretty remarkable.

This museum contains minute exhibits which you view under various stages of magnification. It is inside the Kyiv Pechersk National Historico-Cultural Preserve, so you have to pay admittance to that first before you can get to the museum. The small scale of the models and objects produced by Mykola Syadristy are mind-boggling. It is well worth a visit it you... More

I was told by my guide before going in that I was going to like this museum alot. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was honestly blown away by the exhibits. Can't believe how anyone is able to create such teeny-tiny microscopic intricate sculptures that is impossible to see to the naked eye. Crazy amazing. The entrance fee... More

Interesting to view these micro pictures. It takes approximately 15 minutes to look through the exhibition. However, we were disappointed a little bit since not all exhibits were there.

Incredible how someone could fabricate such intricate sculptures and models given the tools and technology at the time. The rose inside a human hair completely blew me away.

This museum is inside the Pecherski Lavra and you pay separate entry for it. It is absolutely tiny, but it's fitting for the miniatures on display. Amazing how one can make something so tiny.

I didn't know what to expect when I went to this museum, but this is the most incredible display of art I've ever seen and I honesty keep telling my friends about what I've seen. This guy literally creates magic! How does one create art on a grain of sugar, place camel in the eye of an needle and paint... More

After entering Pechersk Lavra for 20 UAH (~£0.60), you should definitely come and see this exhibit. It costs 40 UAH (~£1.20) to get in, and will take you about 30 minutes to see it all. All of the pieces here are incredible. After seeing them all I still have no idea how one person could have done all of this... More
