After experiencing the National "Museum" of Prague's abysmal staffing, layout, modern art nonsense and utter lack of exhibits, this hidden gem was genuinely worth the money. It's a real museum with hundreds if not thousands of artifacts. Great layout which works chronologically from prehistory to modern day Czech history. All the rooms are really well constructed and there is just so much to see. They also play fitting music in some rooms which really adds to the atmosphere but doesn't get in the way of reading. Staff were also quiet and helpful. When I think of museum I think of places like The British Museum and the Ashmolean... This was like those in every way, just a little smaller.

Avoid the scam that is the National Museum of Prague and its connected buildings and go for this instead. I have no idea why this museum is hidden when it's literally the only one worth visiting.

This is a stunning building! I read other reviews and most of them were true. Apparently the only complete exhibit is the minerals. It was interesting. There was a temporary coin exhibition with ancient coins. Egyptian exhibit was sold out. You can skip if you don’t have time but I’m glad I went as we were in Prague for 4 days.

The whole building is majestic. The inside architecture and stairs and paintings as well. The exhibition however were a huge disappointment!!! I expected to see a history of Prague, instead I saw few exhibitions of mediocre quality to say the least! It is true that you get to see 5 other museums with the entrance ticket but if they have told me that the museum was almost empty I would have skipped it. The only reason I’m giving it a 2/5 is that the tutankhamoun exhibition which was a great experience. So you can actually skip the museum and pay for the tutankhamoun only. I don’t recommend this museum unless they change/fix their exhibitions.

We made the long walk to the museum and were astonished to find that they did not accept Credit Card Payments or Euros! You had to pay in CASH! As we didn't have and Czech currency on us we had to give this attraction a miss!

Prague City Museum is located in an impressive building at the Florenc end of Na Porici.

Our recent visit was mainly to see an Exhibition of photographs taken in Prague in the late 1960s. Whilst we were there we also took the opportunity to see the fascinating Langweil’s model of Prague from the 1850s, plus a 6 minute 3D video of the model, shown in a room in the basement.

We also had time to look through the exhibition on the graves dating from the 5th century uncovered 10 years ago in a Prague suburb ( Barbarian Graves ). The Prehistoric and Medieval Prague exhibitions were also very informative.

Outside on the path to the Museum there is also a number of photographs displayed commemorating the 1945 Prague uprising.

There is no café in the museum ( although there is a McDonalds just round the corner ! ), but there is a small souvenir shop.

Entrance to the museum cost 120 KCS, which I thought was very good value. If you keep the receipt you can return 4 more time during the year for half price admittance

This wasn’t the greatest museum I have ever visited. It seems stuck somewhere in the 80’s and the staff seem to not to want to serve you.
The signs are very helpfully in Czech and English however sometimes the numbering of articles goes 1,2,4,3,6,5 etc which is confusing. A great model of the city is worth having a look at.

History of the City in artifact-based exhibitions.

The most popular exhibit is the Langweil 1:480 scale papier-maché / cardboard model of Prague constructed between 1826-1837, which now provides the only proof of how some of the long-destroyed buildings in the city-centre looked like.

This Museum is a great option for those who want to know more about the city of Prague. In the first floor it has 4 rooms with a collection that starts with pre-historic Prague, including cultures that were developing in the area and goes until the medieval times.

In the second floor there are more rooms with baroque and the beginning of the modern era in Prague. Coming back to first floor the permanent collection continue with XIX century. When I visited there was also an exhibition with mainly photos and a film of one of the Christian neighbourhoods of the city. The organisation of the collection seems a bit confused to me, but all in all they have interesting itens in their collection that make it worth a visit.

At the entrance they have an original part of the astronomic clock that is shown in the tower of the city hall(currently in renovation). As an important part of its collection, the Museum has a really interesting and precious very detailed model of the old city and the castle area of Prague. The author was Langweil.

Not sure why this museum is rated so low. It is located in a lovely building, has nice displays. A bit far from city center but the effort to get there worth it, especially if you have an interest in history as I do.

Lovely staff, good explanations in English, interesting temporal expo too.

Entrance only 5 euro for full ticket.
