Atlas Obscura The Micro Wonder Museum

Tourists often travel abroad to see giant attractions like the Great Pyramids, the Taj Mahal, and the Eiffel Tower. But on a narrow street in Szentendre, Hungary, the most bizarre and perplexing attraction is unique for the exact opposite reason: for being incredibly small.

The Micro Wonder Museum, located just 30 minutes north of central Budapest, is a grand collection of miniature art so tiny you can only see it through the lens of a microscope. The miniatures fit an immense amount of detail into just about a millimeter of space, telling a story at a scale invisible to the naked eye.
