Great history in a town that loves the American liberation!

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

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

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

This is a neat spot full of us history. I really enjoyed looking through this museum. It has a lot of history in it even though it is very small. It's worth a look.

I'm a WWII fan and I especially George Patton. We just returned from Pilsen and made it point to take in this museum. The museum is small and has only three exhibits that were specially about Patton. 1. A bust of Patton. 2. A picture of Patton 3. A display of his 4 start helmet and ribbons. The rest of... 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.
