During the Liberation Celebration, we visited the Patton Museum. So much history! Such an honor to have the Czech people, and especially Plzen, display war memorability.

Very interesting experience for anyone interested in WW2 and/or Pilsen history. There is a lot to see and admire in quite a small area.

Small, but packed full of exhibits. My dad was in Patton's army until shortly before the liberation of Pilsen. Not everyone dislikes the US as the curator of this museum and the monuments around town will tell you. Met a WW2 vet of the liberation here, a day following the 70th anniversary celebration.

As other reviewers have noted, this is a small museum about the liberation of western Bohemia by the U.S. 3rd Army commanded by General Patton, but it is jam packed with fascinating information and artifacts. The admission charge is under $3 and is well worth a 2 hour visit. There is lots of reading and some of it is a... More

It is not that big of a museum, but boy is it packed with info and artifacts. We spent a couple of hours here. The name is a bit misleading because the museum is not just about Patton. It is about World War 2 in general, the liberation of Czechoslovakia and the groups who helped liberate it. It's a great... More

This museum makes one proud to be an American. The American troops were so crucial to helping win WWII and the people of Plzen have honored and been thankful for 70+ years. Gen. Patton and US Troops are given tribute in this small museum which is full of interesting WWII memorabilia.

It was supposed to be just a quick stop over a getting to know Pilsen a bit more but it turned out to be quite a stop as we spent there nearly two hours reading every informational panel there was as these parts of information weren't known to me before and I believe still aren't to many other citizens of...

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.
