American tourists should visit this museum. It is very well done and interesting even if you aren’t interested in Patton himself. It is a very heart-warming story about US liberating Plzen.

The museum is a terrific effort by a small, volunteer group. It provides a very tangible record of the US Army experience in Pilsen and the surrounding region (West Bohemia). It is named for Patton out of reverence for the man, but as a previous reviewer said, it does not focus on the general's career at all. In short, the... More

Tip: Offer discounted student tickets. Tip: Do not have parking but there is a park and pay across from the museum. Interesting to see the artifacts from WWII but they could do a lot better with this museum. Money is probable the issue. No tours. You just walk in to one room that has multiple exhibits. Have old tapes of... More

We were looking forward to seeing this museum, but when we walked in, there was no one at the front desk. The museum was open (it was about 11:00 on a Friday). We waited about 5 minutes. Two different staff members walked by and saw us, but neither one said anything to us. There still wasn't anyone at the desk,... More

Take Czech Kroner and not other currencies. The items and presentation were pleasant and relevant. Takes about 1 hr if you browse slowly

Czechs love Americans and love Patton for the American role in liberating the Czech Republic (until FDR gave away eastern Europe). If you liked Patton or the movie, go here.

This museum is small but well maintained and gives a good history of the US Army and its connection with Pilzen. I enjoyed my time there and learned a few things in the meantime. You can probably see the whole display in 45-60 minutes but I would definitely say add this to your trip to Pilzen.

Recommend reading the panels and see how the fanaticism made it nearly impossible for any Germans to express their consciences for fear of execution and locals could not resist without fear of execution. Read the panel that shows US killed and wounded on the route to freeing Plzen, that was incredible sacrifice worth remembering. USSR's occupation and subsequent media and... More

Patton is the American general who had most sucsess in the Allied liberation of occupied territory during WWII. The museum in his name is though 90 per cent local war history and 10 per cent Patton slash overall war history. Still it is quite fascinating. The compact exhibition contains numerous artifacts, mainly American trooper equipment. Lot's of images from the... More
