About
Th e Museun of the Iron Curtain in Valtice presents the history of border patrol service along the state border with main emphasis on the years of 1951-1989. This was when border patrol units served here and when eff orts were made to make the state border completely impenetrable using various military support creating the Iron Curtain.There are various uniforms on display, weapons and equipment as well as numerous photographs and documentaries. An interesting thing, without doubt, is the reconstruction of the iron curtain or a real cell.

A bit of a wasted opportunity
Jul 2020
Seemed rather chaotically organised. The first part of the museum had no real explanation of what we were looking at. If my husband weren't Slovak and hadn't already related the context of the area and the events of pre-1989, I don't think I'd have left the museum much wiser with regards to it all.

Having said that, the photos of Czechoslovak life during the communist times and the stories of the unfortunate victims of the border patrols were very moving.

The museum is a very quick walk from the colonnade, and not particularly expensive, so if you're in the area I'd nonetheless recommend having a look at it - but if your central European communist history is a little rusty, you'll leave with more questions than answers.

Reminder of the communist crimes

Small museum focused mainly on the Iron Curtain times and describing tragic destiny of many people who were trying to leave the communist hell. Must see visit.

Cool Museum

Although small, it's worth a visit. First of all, it holds some original items such as uniforms, guns, office materials etc. Also, the region around it is beautiful!
