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

This small museum is worthwhile visiting if you are interested in the history of the Czech Republic at the end of WWII. The communists denied the liberation of Plzen by the Americans. A "fine" example how history was rewritten by them. This exhibition does justice to the role the US Army played in the liberation.

As soon as I started reading first information panel, I could not stopped. I red every text the museum had to offer and was really glad I did. The stories of different cities and people were really fascinating and moving, I even had a hard time holding tears few times. The museum is really small in comparison to others, but... More

My family really enjoyed visiting the museum. The worker was super friendly to us and answered many questions. My boys enjoyed looking at all the pictures and everything in the cases. It was a nice tribute and educational.

I visited this museum during the tour of Pilsen. It is quite an small military museum, but with a very nice collection, especially considered the fact that most of the exhibits come from private collections. Furthermore, it sheds a new light on historical events that happened in Pilsen during world war 2, especially because its considered that Soviet soldiers liberated... More

We found out about the Patton Museum and are delighted with the reception we received from the curators. Milan accepted our donations with respect and admiration for the roll our... More
