Right in the middle of the city. A little hard to find the entrance (through the casino). Unbiased history of communism and what the Czech people have been though. Make sure you watch the whole video in the cinema.

If you would like to know more about the repression, injustice, and aggression that the people of Czech had forced upon them then come to this museum! Insanely moving and inspiring to see the activism and hope this country had opposing their communist oppression! A stop everyone should make - learning the dark side of history is required for history... More

Nice place, but nothing special. Great videos of important historical events in Prague. Gives a glimpse of what Prague and its people have gone trough.

Located in the center of a shopping dostrict, very easy to get to by public transportation. I don't think there is audio guide offered by the way.

Given central Prague (which extends for miles in all directions) is so beautiful and in such good condition it's easy to overlook the modern history of the Czech people. This museum is an important reminder of what the Czech people have endured in the 20th century. Importantly it does touch on the beginning of Communism in Czech starting when the... More

This museum gives a brilliant display of Czech communism. It is primarily focused on Czech communism. But the museum does display cognitive logic away from Czech history.

I was quite curious about this museum. It presents an account of the communist regime in Czechoslovakia, and in Prague in particular. There is a lot of information, artefacts and also a few films. These describe how things went from communism presented as a utopian dream to more of nightmarish reality.

Having visited fantastic DDR museums in Berlin and Dresden I had high hopes for this museum. But I was really disappointed. Firstly it's difficult to find as it's set behind the street and poorly signed. Once in we had to wait a good 5 minutes to buy a ticket because the receptionist was on the phone in what was evidently... More

Really interesting, you learn a lot if you bother to read everything there is to read, which you definitely should! I also recommend watching the entire movie, it's really educational. Location was nice and central, easy to find.

This is not a museum. It is a large room with a small (not LCD) television without surround sound to act as a cinema to explain the Velvet Revolution The rest is just nostalgia to a time clearly gone. However in true capitalist style is over priced at the equivalent to 6 GBP.

Thank Lloyd W

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
