You get to know those sights by hearing and seeing and all that without having to go out of Minsk! Features a photo zone, a souvenir shop.

The museum offers around 20 big well-made and elaborated displays of most important architectural sights of Belarus. All the displays are accompanied by a number and a title in Belarusian and English. The guiding is provided in a form of short audios, written basics on a mobile application (phones are provided by the venue).

Special tip

One of the best museums, Thumbnails are made in great detail, it is so interesting to look at small figures of people on mock-ups. These are not just figures, but real stories, if real people! I was pleased that the layouts are interactive - it is very interesting how the lighting changes, details are added or disappear. Cool! The museum has 2 cool photo zones: the Belarusian house and the New Year's. Everyone wants to get photos in a Belarusian house :) All the time in the museum they watch how everyone takes pictures there :) And at the New Year’s photo zone, if you’re lucky, you can meet Santa Claus! Many thanks to the museum staff! Very polite and nice guys. I love the good service very much, but here it is on the level! Thanks! I definitely recommend the Country Mini Museum not only to tourists in Belarus, but also to local residents!

Nice place just in the center of Minsk. Strongly recommend to visit if you don't have enough time to travel across the country. Besides the exhibition you can browse through souvenirs that are made by local artisans. Moreover, there is always an english speaking guide

Me and my friend visited Minsk a few weeks ago. And Strana mini was on must-see list. We were glad to see such a hospitable attitude! The admin there even helped to buy jazz concert tickets, hire a taxi and charge our smartphones. You know, we were really impressed by the way museum staff treated us. It felt like visiting a real friend. Surely, the exposition is excellent. The models are so detalized! the souvenir shop is also great with plenty of pretty things to buy to your friends and relatives. And yep, they have Wi-Fi free of charge :) So, cutting short. Strana mini is a great place to explore Belarus, especially if you don't have enough time to travel around the country. After seeing all the places in miniuture you will easily decide where to go! :)

I visited this museum last week with my foreign friends. To say that I was impressed is to say nothing. To my mind this is one of the best museums in Belarus! You can visit the most interesting and outstanding places of our country within 1 hour! There are discounts for kids,students and senior citizens which was a good option for us :) You can have a guided tour or just explore the museum on your own with audioguides. The staff is really great! The museum itself is in the city centre so don't hesitate to visit it. I'm sure you won't regret! :)

This museum is a cool place to stop by, regardless whether you are a local or a guest in the country. Architectural miniatures in Strana Mini let you get acquainted with what Belarus has to offer, especially if you are visiting the country just for a short amount of time. The museum is conveniently located, has a fun photozone, great gift shop, and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
