Located in the grounds of the Pechersk Lavra, this is a must-see visit. Entrance fee of 20 hryvnnia (about 50 pence at Apr 15 rate) on top of the Lavra entrance fee. You would be foolish to miss this awe-inspiring exhibition. I first visited in 2001. It is still as jaw-droppingly impressive now as it was then. Very, very, very... More

When visiting the Kiev Pechersk Lavra don’t miss the micro miniature museum. The whole complex with the caves and the cathedral is very impressive but the miniature museum is something unique. Is this kind of things that you seldom have the opportunity to see in your tours. The exposition is not that large and the facilities are very small but... More

Seriously, if you have the opportunity to spend a few minutes looking at a flea with golden shoes, or a chessboard on the head of a pin, or a human hair turned into a bud vase, isn't it worth it? This museum offers the added attraction of poetry to accompany each piece, which adds to its charm.

This is an amazing museum the likes of which I have not seen in any other place. It is well worth finding in the Lavra Museum and only takes a few minutes to go through. The different pieces are amazing to see through the microscopes. The items are beautiful besides the incredible amount of work that must have been needed... More

The micro-miniatures are the must see if you are in Kiev. The extraordinary guy who makes them (Mykola Syadristy) may also be on site, which is an extra bonus.

It's a small museum inside the Lavra complex containing less than 20 miniatures. but each it's an amazement of industriosity and tiny details: a tiny galeon, a book. It's no more than 20 minutes but worth a stop while in Lavra.
