“small, but good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

A pretty small, but really good museum if you are interested in kafka. it is more based on the life of kafka, as it is on his work. all pieces are described in english, but if you want to read the longer originals you should know german. entry is not expensive.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

I'm not fan of KAFKA, but the technical solutions in the nuseum are just amazing!!! Lots of projectors, metal constructions, lights, chains, mirrors, hidden rooms with small windows, worse to see!

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We found this an interesting place to visit. Not knowing all that much about Kafka it was an interesting insight into the life of such an intellectual but sadly frustrated individual.
Layout of the museum was very unusual and quirky and at times added to the feeling of Kafka's frustration and oppression.
I loved the 'Streams' statues in the front courtyard too.
Entry more expensive than other venues we visited.

“Now I know what Kafkaesque means!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A lot to read in English, but much more if you read German. Lots of evocative pictures but you probably need to have read some Kafka to appreciate the museum fully.

“Kafkaesque layout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Unsettling layout (though that was the point!) strange but rewarding experience. Go early to avoid the large group visits.
