Prague is full of wonderful places to visit. This was my second trip to this beautiful city- this time with my daughter. My husband and I had been at the museum 8 years ago. We loved it then, and although it’s changed, the change has...More
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.
Went here on a rainy day and left with a greater understanding of the history of the Czech Republic and communism. Tickets were 250czk for adults, no line to get in and spent around 1-1.5hrs there. There are lockers (additional cost) for your bags if...More
A great way to spend a couple of hours on a wet day in Prague! A fascinating , informative and moving insight into how the Czechs/Slovaks finally regained their freedom and democracy after 40 years of oppressive communist rule !
The Museum of Communism included detailed displays focusing on a varying aspects of life under the communist regime-from the everyday to the more dark side of things. Very informative and a good way to spend a few hours, but probably not best for families with...More
Excellent Review of Czechoslovakia under Communist Rule. Documents the liberation of Czech from NAZI rule (1945) thru the liberation from Communist rule (1989). The Communist oppressed Czech to conform to its paranoid view of the West and did more harm than good in the long...More
Well laid out museum - not as big as most but has been very well thought out. Felt we learned a lot about Prague and its challenging history - right up to the Velvet Revolution. The videos of people of Prague were interesting - hearing...More
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.
