The museum was very interesting and informative. The displays allowed us to learn about the communist regime in a very clear and concise way. The museum was laid out very well. Overall, a good experience.

A lot of written information on walls, whilst very interesting, could of benefited with more audio/visual displays. The display is well laid out and logical progression as you walk around the displays. Its more an information site rather than a museum per see. Worth visiting.

Mostly for young people as it is more sensational than educational, but still interesting and nicely arranged, you can watch a film there too.

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

I wouldn't think so. It's a small and kind of out of the way museum and didn't seem to get that much traffic when we were there. And I think we were there on a weekend.
