A friend took me to view the Gen., Patton Museum in Plzen as he was born on the day Plzen was liberated in 1945. The museum is small but has a good variety of exhibits. Considering that for decades the people off Plzen where not allowed to celebrate this occasion - it was nice to see the passion and thanks... More

We visited the George Patton Museum and realize how important he is to the area. There are a few rooms with memorabilia from WWII. It makes you realize how important our troops were to the Czech people in trying to help them gain their freedom.

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.
