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.

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.

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.
