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.

As a guide I brought to the museum students from USA to show them what happened here at the end of WW2. So many young souldiers sacrificed their lives. We shall keep it in ouir mind and hand over this event. to future generation. At school during communism the history was interpreted in a different way in spite of the... More

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

My husband and I had been looking for a place to donate some of my Dad's WWII souvenirs given to him by the people of Czechoslovakia late in the war. 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

I've been to Plzen three times. It's a short trip from Grafenwoehr, Germany, so it's an easy destination to take visiting guests. We always go to the Patton Museum. True, the entrance isn't very dramatic, and you'll probably pass it a few times before you find it. I love the the old uniforms, books, magazines, and military supplies on display.... More

Very old fashioned type of museum but an interesting little excursion and well worth the time. If you like history in general and WW2 history in particular this is definitely worth a visit.

I was not expecting a low profile nondescript white building for the Patton Museum which is probably why we made two trips to the neighborhood before we found it. Once inside, I found my self pooh-poohing the building, the entrance and the artifacts. And then I started reading. I am amazed at the depth people fight to in protecting what... More

My husband is a history lover, so we do plenty of history related things. I found this Museum very interesting and well put together. I could have spent more time here. My husband (the history lover) says: " The museum has the usual assortment of military uniforms, weapons, badges and other paraphernalia. For me, the most interesting aspects were then... More

I was there as a returning WW II Veteran for the entire week of the Liberation Festable. The Patton Museum is one of the highlights of the week. Close behind however was the 220 old WW II American vehicles in the large parade. Last year had even more 330. I highly recomend the hotel Uzuonu. It is modern and only... More

We attended the Liberation Festival in Plzen May 5th and 6th of 2011. They had a camp set up outside the Patton museum with all the military equipment from WWII. There were some interesting testimonials of a few of the GIs that liberated the town. They had many photos of that period. Mary Anne H.
