What is it and where is this museum?
The Museum of the Miniature, in Andorra, is an exhibition space of great interest for art lovers, especially those who value the meticulousness of the details. It is located in the town of Ordino and is composed of works of very different type, the result of the work of Nicolai Siadristy, a Ukrainian artist who is considered one of the best in the world in this specialty. It is located in the Maragda Building, on Carrer Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer.
What can be seen in the Ordino Miniature Museum?
The Museum of Miniature welcomes microminures made of noble materials such as gold and platinum, as well as common materials such as paper, fruit seeds or rice grains, hand-made by Nicolai Siadristy. The famous matrioska dolls are numerous, whose smallest specimens are really a prodigy of this discipline. But you can also know crucifixes, sacred art objects and many other pieces of art. To appreciate this work 100%, the visitor can (and should) use a microscope in some cases: among them you will find incredible works such as the "Still life over a gram of salt", or the "Caravan of camels passing through the eye of the hurricane ", among many others.
Despite its small size, the Museum of the Miniature also dedicates a space to the understanding of the difficult work of Nicolai Siadristy with a small audiovisual area where images about his life and work are projected.
The visit to the museum can be done both free and guided, with an approximate duration of 20 minutes. It can be reached by car in a simple way, since it is located on the main access road to the town, next to the CG-3. The bus line that connects Andorra la Vella with the town is the L6, so it is also a good option for those coming from the capital.
