The Museum of Miniatures

This strange, eccentric museum is dedicated to Siberian Anatoly Konenko and his amazing miniatures. And amazed you will be! The museum displays works that are carved and painted, rarities and oddities such as a caravan of camels in the eye of a needle, a portrait of Chekhov on a half of a poppy seed, tiny copies of masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Sandro Botticelli and Rembrandt, a 3.2mm three dimensional Eiffel Tower, and even the Lords Prayer and a train on human hairs! The world's smallest book, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is here too; the book is 0.9 x 0.9 mm with 30 pages and 3 illustrations and displays the Chameleon Story by Anton Chekhov. Magnifying glasses and lenses are provided as a matter of course. This astonishing museum is a true delight for all ages.
