Beautifully displayed exhibits in this fascinating museum. It's hard to imagine an intricate piece of art on something the size of a pin head, but you'll see it here, and more besides.

One for kids and adults alike with entrance fees going to charity. Artists worldwide have contributed including local ones. Favourites in my case had to be the Dali miniature of Christ on the Cross , the tiny copy of the famous Velazquez painting of 'Las Meninas' and 'La Tierra en Fuego ' etched on a dot of ivory.

Really enjoyed this little museum it was only three euros to go in, it didn't take long to look round, but it was quite fascinating and interesting to see the incredible talent of artists and what they can achieve on such small tiny pieces of items. Really worth a look.

It may be unique as they, but it is certainly worth the modest entrance fee. Do not miss it when you are in Mijas Pueblo.

Also it said it was air conditioned, which it was definitely not. It was small cramped and airless. Stayed about 5 minutes maximum and were... More

We were in two minds about going into what was clearly a small museum but the exhibits were surprisingly captivating. There were lots of exhibits crammed in and it managed to hold our attention for half an hour - even the children. We emerged feeling it had been worth the money after all...

We LOVED the miniatures museum. At only 3€ entry fee per person this little place is marvellous and has some very impressive pieces. All the proceeds go to a mental health charity, such a great cause.
