The area
Address
Neighborhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

Some of the experiences are fun but the museum is really small, we spend half an hour.. Also, I found that the ticket was expensive for the quality of the experiences: some not working or really old aged. Would recommend it only if you have seen every beauty of Prague

I had a very bad feeling when leaving the museum...
The idea of the museum is good, yet it is very small and from its opening nobody took care of it - most of the exhibits is already damaged, broken or missing. The real idea of only draw the money from the tourist is obvious.
With that money comes the biggest problem - cheating. I had to pay 150 CZK (6 EUR) with a discount card. (After visit it seems too much for its value as well.) But the ticket seller said their equipment doesn't work and he will give me price like with the discount. So he said 380 CZK (15 EUR). ??? I said what? Than he said ok, 300 CZK (12 EUR). I said it should probably be 100 CZK(4 EUR, the price with discount during the workdays). He said no, the price is 200 CZK already with all discounts. I paid and he didn't give me any ticket!! and told me to go!
And all that happened even when I speak Czech, I can't imagine, how the museum is ripping off the tourists!

Dear JenZridka, thank you for your review. We investigated this situation, because visitor´s satisfaction is our priority. At the time you came with your Active pass, our internet connection was lost. Our mistage, we apologise you for this inconvenient, Our colleague Zdeněk, who checked your Active pass and then sold you the ticket, proceeded well. Because we could not offer you a ticket for 150 CZK, he offered you a discount. The discount that you were offered first, 380 CZK was for 1 adult ticket and 1 child older than 5 years old. Regular prices are 299 CZK for adult and 179 CZK for child. Then, the second price Zdeněk mentioned, of 299 CZK, was our regular price for 1 adult tickets, when he found out that your kid is less than 5 years old and goes for free. This was his own mistake, which he realized immediately and corrected his information about discounted price for 199 CZK. When you agreed, he put it in our cash system and wrote a note for our accountant, that the discount was offerred for inconvenience with Active pass. He could have given you the bill, because it exists, because he, correctly, put your ticket in the cashier. Again, we apologise you for our lost internet connection and miscommunication from our side. We are sure that our colleague´s procedure was correct and we stand for fact that we are 100% fair company to every visitor´s payment. Thank you for understanding. Best regards.

This was around £10 to enter and we had been looking forward to it.

It was quite busy with a lot of children running around which probably skewed our views as we couldnt properly take the time to do things. Theres some good photo opportunities here but it's all quite basic and over very quickly. We were only in there for 25 mins.

The whole place looked a bit grotty and smelt like a kids soft play.

I wouldnt put it on your list of stuff to do if you're visiting Prague. Maybe just give it a go if you're at a loose end.

Overall there are some great ideas in there but we payed about 25€ for two persons and were done in about 30 min (while doing some of the activities twice).
Also at the end there are signs asking you to write a review, show it to the staff and then receive a free gift. Therefore be careful when reading others reviews.

I consider this place suitable mostly for children. There is a lot of interesting interactive activities for them to try to understand basic physics. They are also resented in a playful way so definitely something that your kid can waste some time with.
In a contrary to that, some expositions are not suitable for them. I saw a boy taking down a frames picture form a wall as he didn't see it properly. The picture hanged above his head.
The coolest exposition was Vortex tunnel. It makes you feel really dizzy. I had an urge to go through the tunnel few times just to prove to myself that I can walk through with closed eyes. Finally some challenge!

Dear Jana, thank you for your review. We think about our museum as a place suitable for all ages. Not only kids can use the stairs to see better all exponates, including those which are placed higher :) We are happy that you found the Vortex tunnel challenging, Vortex is one of our most favourites attractions. Thank you and have a nice day, Gabrijela Grgic (CEO)

We visited here at the last minute after having a spare evening and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday. We had so much fun taking photos and being part of the illusions. The yellow room was a particular highlight, as was the camera at the end of the visit.

We visited at about 7pm on a Thursday evening and it wasn't very busy so it was easy to take lots of photos without having to wait in line or having other people get in the way.

Quite entertaining but not a large place. There are a few rooms and places for interesting photo opportunities, and will unlikely take more than an hour to visit.

This Museum is a fun, interactive experience that is especially appealing if you have young children - unless, of course, you have children on the autism spectrum or who otherwise have any kind of sensory processing disorder. For them, it can be quite overwhelming.

The reason I am giving the Museum of Senses only a two-star review is because of their lack of safety measures during the global Coronavirus pandemic. There are no safeguards against overcrowding and in many places, it is basically impossible to maintan a safe distance from others. There is no shortage of things to touch, play with, interact with, and even smell, but absolutely no hand sanitizer to speak of.

If you decide to visit this Museum, please take care to wear a mask - even if none is required - and wash or sanitize your hands immediately following your visit, avoiding the temptation to touch your face. Stay safe out there!

Dear linda_brings_the_fun, thank you for your review. We definitely agree that disposition of museum hardly allowes to keep distance. That is why we had information about safety rules at the entrance, for all visitors. In the Czech republic, that is no regulation about wearing masks, so people are not willing to wear them. It is not mistake of museum, it is people behaviour. Of course, we have desinfections, at the entrance, exit, toilets and in the museum as well. Not "on every corner", but we do have it. To keep safety rules depends on our visitors. We, as Museum of senses, have all the necessary things to keep people informed. Thank you for your feedback. Have a lovely day, Gabrijela Grgic (CEO(
