The museum is ironically located next to McDonald building and a casino place. Tiny museum more like private collection because the number of items displayed is limited. It looks outdated and a bit depressing. The ticket is cheap though, only CZK 190. The film played...More

Look, this place is ok. But none of the artefacts, their provence, meaning or history are interpreted. This is done by sententious billboards that explain everything for you, leaving little opportunity for you to think for yourself. I hear it is being moved, so I...More

It's not the easiest place to find. If I remember correctly it's housed in the same building as the casino but I'm glad we persevered and eventually found it. It's very interesting and informative and I recommend watching the short film that's on offer. It's...More

Tiny museum more like a private collection. It’s a good way of understanding Czech late history and local people. The film displayed in the last room before the exit is excellent.

This place was a lovely and cool retreat out of the summer sun. We spent a good while trying to find it, but it was such cheap entry and so full of artefacts it was incredibly interesting. There was a small part on the balcony...More

Read some great reviews on TripAdvisor and feel let down. The museum consisted of a small number of rooms containing 1960's furniture and uniforms of the era along with lots of written information. There was film footage detailing the soviet occupation in the '60's and...More

We spent 2 hours here reading everything and learning about the history of Prague. Fascinating and well worth taking the time - close to Wenceslas Square, so easy to get to.

Good deep dive in the communism ideology and implications with specific impact on on the Czech history. Interesting, but not very objective/impartial with all the events.

My youngest aged 12 wanted to go to the Apple museum. I'd rather poke my eyes out so the wife took him there (and he really enjoyed it so job done) What to do for an hour? Having done a degree in history in the...More

If you're new to Czech's history, you may want to familiarise yourself before coming here. It's located near the centre of the city but hidden away upstairs next to a casino and Mcdonalds. There's no lift. Slightly overpriced at 190CZK per adult, but if you're...More

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

It is hidden in between shops. It is small but very interesting. Maybe an 1.5 hrs.at most? When we went there were no lines and we bought tickets there.
