Before we stumbled upon Museum Mysteriae Pragensis in Mala Strana, Prague, we had no idea there were so many supernatural legends about Prague and its surroundings. It is really fun, very interactive (as in you can touch and manipulate practically anything inside) and most of all very informational about dozens of Prague legends (as in every prop inside the place...

Very disappointed, my boyfriend and I thought this would showcase all the best legends about Prague and their history, but in reality it was a bunch of poorly told ghost stories and a few puppets. More like a poor attempt at a funfair ghost house than a museum. Good for a laugh but not worth the entrance fee.

OK this place is silly in parts and it's not huge, but it has a lot of redeeming features. A lot of it is quite atmospheric and creepy with some of the less obvious effects done pretty well, certainly made my wife jump. Visually the upper floor is pretty good, and it feels like care has gone into its decoration.... More

Do not go here. Seriously it's such a waste of time and even more a waste of money. This is a rip-off. It sounds cool, but it's cheap low-tech (read: no-tech). Nothing moves, it's all done with lights trying to make it scary, but it's not. The only thing remotely scary is the music playing on the lower level. Not... More

I came here with my husband and we love legend and ghosts. What we expected is to high. It's a small museum and you pay too much for 20 minutes visit. We felt stupid after all. Waste of time and money.

It cant be called a "museum" but indeed dark rooms with puppets & some cheap affects. we was there with a 11 y/o kid, that begged us before to take him there, but even he was disappointed from this place. the walk inside was around 20 minutes...without anything special or intresting. strongly not recommended.

Just some dark rooms with a bunch of puppets. Not really a lot of info, nor a audio guide. Everything takes for about 15 minutes tops. A big disappointment.

You were left to wander by yourself in both the atrium and the tower. the tower was excellent, so many things to take in! I would give the 5 stars if we have some guide to tells more about the place. Bought this ticket together with the ghost museum. Well worth it!

Small 'museum'. Tells you a few ghost legends of Prague. Few stuffed dummies and objects stuck to the wall. Really not worth the time. Buy a book and read about Pragues ghosts instead. Anyones imagination is going to be better than this museum.

Nice museum with lots of ghosts. Came there in the evening so it was a bit spooky. Museum contains lots of written legends illustrated by appropriate ghosts. As in alchemist's museum, all the stories are put in the "Ghosts & Legends of Old Prague" brochure (75 Kč).

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
