About
The Museum is open to the public as usual. Welcome to the world of the beautiful and eternal ! 16 Euro per person. The KGB museum was founded by the organization Chernyy dozhd is a community of people who are fascinated with the history collected unique items related to the activities of the Soviet Secret Service. The presence of many exhibits is primarily due to anarchy and lack of control over many state museums in the USSR during its division into many independent states, which used to be former Soviet socialist republics. Only due to the Chernyy dozhd organization many priceless exhibits were saved from looting, destruction and recycling. This is the first time in the world memorabilia previously belonging to the first persons of the Soviet Union, the heads of the Cheka-NKVD-GPU-OGPU-MGB-KGB .

Neighborhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

Great experience!
May 2021 • Friends
The experience in this museum was amazing! There was a big collection of everything connected to the history of KGB, both wars, Cold War, Soviet Union and all the event that came along. The tour guide was amazing, he demonstrated military moves, the use of knives and guns and really made the tour unique. He was passionate, funny and he really believes in the power of awareness. We really enjoyed it! 🤘🏼🍀

The museum contains interesting things which you can touch, hold or try on. The owner really knows the topic so his comments are very informative. Worth to visit!

Waste of time and money
Aug 2020 • Couples
Hey guys please don’t go to that place ! It’s a scam literally! Nothing about KGB
This place can’t call a museum! It’s a 2 bedroom apartment with the guy is living
Let’s me explain you who is the guy running that place , It’s a small Ouzbékistan guy pretending is Russian plus special force guy it’s a joke!

Seriously I never wrote a review but had to do for that it’s absolutely waste of time and money

Hope someone from the city council of Prague will read all the reviews and shut down that place

This review was written by a fraudster who tried to steal a Nazi badge from a Museum. The police took him away , and he was on his knees, crying . We asked to let him go because we are Russian people - people with a broad and pure soul . In General , to be honest, we did not hand over any of the thieves to the police , we solved all the issues ourselves . This is how he thanked us for our generosity.

Solo travellers unwelcome
Aug 2020
It's no good visiting as a couple or solo traveller, he only allows admission to groups of 3. And you can't pay for the third imaginary person according to the sign on the front door. I couldn't even browse around as a solo with no tour. Plus the bloke was very rude, not impressed.

My friend, in case you didn't know , there are rules for visiting certain places everywhere. You don't take up two or three seats on a plane, do you ? Because you paid for one seat .Can you trace an analogy in this reasoning ? You probably can't do it, I'm sorry...

A trip to the USSR with an eccentric guide
Jul 2020
I must say this was a very... unique...and interesting experience. The owner is an eccentric Russian who has amassed a huge collection of Soviet antiques and weapons. He is VERY enthusiastic about the USSR and as soon as we agreed to pay the entrance fee we were welcomed into what felt like Soviet Russia, complete with fanfare sound effects. He showed us how the spy weapons and guns worked with all the excitement of showing off his favourite toys. The highlight for me was that he let us hold some of the weapons and take photos with them - an ordinary museum would never let you touch their displays. If you like Soviet or spy things, it will be heaven for you. If you don't, go in with an open mind and treat it as a fun experience, not an educational museum, and it will still be entertaining. Overall, I found it to be highly unusual and much more entertaining and memorable than a normal museum.

Not Worth It
Jul 2019
We stopped here, excited for what should have been an interesting experience. Instead we were met with a ridiculously high price for what was offered. What we will never forget is the aggressive rudeness by the man running the tour. He was very angry upon receiving our only question. We quickly had our share of his very disrespectful attitude and left soon after we entered. I've never witnessed such anger by somebody in this industry. The odd part was this attitude was directed at everybody in the group.

Honestly, probably, when you are in the cabin of the plane you put on a special mask, so that you do not splash the surrounding poisonous saliva. Why did you write this? Do you think people are at your level of mental development? Everyone understands that you are the next clown who spat on our backs. Do you know where liars go after they die? They're not in hell, no. They fall into dark hell! They are forced to memorize all of Goebbels' speeches. Your mom would be ashamed of your behavior...

very good small group tour

The tour guide is very enthusiastic, I only understand around 60% due to the strong Russian accent. But I still think this is a place worth to go. Very fun indeed!

Don't be fooled by this fake museum
Mar 2020
Frankly speaking it's not museum at all: would say bunch of soviet era artefacts. The guide with very poor English and low level of knowledge of WWII history demonstrated video of parade on Red Square.

Amazing tour
Feb 2020 • Solo
I took yesterday's last tour. We were 3 in the group and it was a tour which I won't forget.
The guide is extremely good and knowledgeble. He knows everything about the KGB and is not shy to share the information with you and he is answering all of your questions.

The tour was about 60minutes long but it felt like 5minutes. With the history and development of the weapons you will get more information how the KGB developed himself too.

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is a bit interested to know more about the KGB.

Reading the previous reviews, I think that the entry price is a fair price and would not think twice about it to pay it or not.

Thank you very much for the unique experience!!
