Great exhibition. Travelling up the stairs and seeing the USSR star is surreal. Well composed story board and interviews on repeat. If you interested in the story communism in Czech republic this is a must visit. Munich agreement story also very interesting and sad.

I visited this museum a few years ago at the original location and was somewhat disappointed in the transition. It was still good, and has a lot more space! But it seemed like some of the exhibits were not put up. Most of the museum...More

The tickets were expensive. I would not say that if the museum was stretching out on 5 floors and had valuable exhibits that need special care. You can use Student ID for discount even if you are not a student at a Czech university. But...More

This museum is well put together and very informative, but you have to read everything so it is very time consuming. I didn't even have time to listen to all of the videos of first-hand experiences because I was trying to be thorough and read...More

We found it very difficult to locate the museum. We went to the old site & the directions there are not adequate to get you to the new location. The display is excellent. My only criticism is that it is very intensive reading. At the...More

It is ironic that the text on the walls, and there is plenty of it, gives such a one-sided and opinionated account of communism that it could have been written by Edgar Hoover himself. If you are looking for an insight into the communist era...More

Presents the history of communism here in Czech in a decently engaging format. You read the display boards, no audio guide was offered. Perhaps a bit pricey at 13 euro, children under 10 are free, family entrance is just a bit more than price for...More

The museum is what I would call a traditional museum with a lot to read on the walls. There were also some installations, but without any explanation in english. The movie at the end showing the Velvet Revolution is interesting.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres 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

It is hidden in between shops. It is small but very interesting. Maybe an 1.5 hrs.at most? When we went there were no lines and we bought tickets there.
