The area
Address
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.
How to get there
  • Lesser • 4 min walk

I visited the Franz Kafka Museum on a solo two-day trip to Prague and found it interesting, though not spectacular. Particularly on a bright summer's day, the interior of the museum feels dark and depressing (to be expected, I suppose, given the writer's affinity for the supernatural and bizarre), such that I was encouraged to leave rather quickly. The exhibitions themselves are well-executed, though not particularly dynamic. Ultimately, a leisurely sit on the banks of the Vltava with a copy of "The Castle" I found a much more pleasant way to revel in Kafka's Prague -- especially given the wealth of inexpensive bookstores nestled through the city.

If you are in Prague, you should definitely see. Don't laugh at the statues in front of the house because it has meaning. It has an interesting story. Look it up you will like it.

First of, the museum is really well structured and also quite modern, with the dark rooms, short movies and the light effects, but it was a lot to read.

Such an informative and encompassing museum of the profound author’s life and works. The displays were a variety of mediums, ranging from plaques to videos and sculptures to projections on canvas. Awesome museum for the powerful author

The exhibition is dated and gloomy, even by Kafka standards. There is little that you couldn't pick up from Wiki. It is also expensive. When I visited on a very warm June afternoon the only public toilet in the place was in a shocking state. You'd think for the hefty admission, they could at least keep this decent. There is so much to see in Prague, I'd give this place a miss.

Housed in a building along the Moldau, the Kafka Museum gives a very comprehensive view of his short life. When I was there, they were filming a documentary about him for German television. The museum is dark and features images from his work, film footage and some thought-provoking quotes. Quite a good gift-shop, too. There are a couple of cafes in the area, too,

It is only for the kafka admirers. I would not recommend to anyone else. The area is great for walking though. The fountain in the yard i think is the only interesting part !

The museum offers satisfaction to devotees, mainly for written items. There are few personal articles or original materials belonging to Kafka, but what is on view is well-curated, offer a detailed glimpse into the troubled psyche of this great writer. Better yet, the chronological displays will help interest newcomers to delve further into the Kafka realm.

Very nicely set up museum, which takes you through Kafka's life, views, and acquaintances. We would have like some more context about the relevance, as it was a lot of information to take in. The staff were very friendly, and the building beautiful. Would recommend to any literature lovers visiting Prague!

I visited on December 4th 2021 at around lunch time and found the lady on the desk to be very rude. I find that in Prague generally, people are either very rude or very very nice. Prague needs to pull its finger out if it is to compete with other European destinations. If you do not know how to deal with the public find another job. As with other reviewers, I found the peeing men statue and the big K more interesting than the museum itself. Talking of which, I found The Franz Kafka Museum lack lustre, not very interesting and full of dusty old books. Perhaps I am just not high brow enough
