Interesting collection of items from the not far socialist past. Cars, everyday items, wax figures of famous party leaders, actors and singers from that period. Worth to visit.

We found quite many familiar things in this museum, starting with toys and ending with cars. It was a nice little trip to our childhood.

This place is purely astonishing as it gives almost a full picture of what used to be truly valuable for the people who lived under Socialism. It would be great if you could have a local person with you and see his or her reaction...More

Nice, a lot of exhibits but most of the car relate to the Ex-Soviet Union countries. The amazing thing is that all retro cars are brand new. Photos can be taken. A visitor can have a good time in it.

It is 10 zen for an adult, or you can get a joint ticket including the newly opened wax work museum (also in the Mall) for 15 zen. Hope this helps.
