This museum is for anyone with a remote interest in military related stuff. They show shells, ammos, guns, tanks, cannons. I did not know an 88 shell was that big until I saw it. You spend around 2-3 hours here. The lighting is quite dim on a rainy day. Its located out of town so you have to find it... More

I am not a fan of fighting or wars but I visited the museum in order to see, if there is anything connected to airplanes. I was shocked how nice the museum is (inside). Very carefully prepared, separated into several time periods. Must be really great for people intested in history since 1918, WW1 and WW2. Additionaly, the entrance is... More

This was an excellent free museum on the north side of Zizkov, which was perfect for me as I was staying nearby. I'm a huge military nerd so this was high on my list of things to see on my second visit to Prague, and I wasn't disappointed. The museum itself and its style of displaying the objects felt a...

A bit of a walk fom the city, but perfect if you have a couple of hours to kill. The czechs are clearly very proud of their armaments industry.

An absolute must-see for history lovers. It is located on Vitkov hill, just below the memorial and Statehood Museum that is situated on top. The museum covers WWI, the inter-war period, and WWII. The information is very well written. Sometimes military museums can get caught up in the details and it's easy to lose the story, but this museum does... More

I must admit that I expected that the museum will be larger, but its content is remarkable. If you are a history or military fan - you must visit it. And above all - it is for free!

The exhibition covers period from WWI through Russian Civil War and Czech Interbellum to WWII. There's a lot of well-known items (bolt-action rifles, handguns and machine guns) and a very interesting collection of experimental and rare weapons (Czech LMG and SMG, German Volkssturmgewehr etc). The entrance is free, photo shooting is allowed

The museum is not the easiest to find, but it is well worth your effort. Both first and second WW are well exhibited. The period of german occupation especially interesting.

The best way to get to this museum is by tram to Husinecka and then a short walk or by bus 207 to U Pamatniku which is just outside and goes to Namesti Republiky. Entry is free and there is a cloakroom to leave coats. There are two floors of displays and at the moment an exposition of Prague in... More
