Must like to read or enjoy learning about Communism/History!

This museum seems a little dated but overall if you like to read and spend time and absorb all the texts available in a museum, this is a great place to visit. I'm no expert on... read more

We spent the day 'immersed' in the story of Communism in Czechoslovakia. Firstly in this museum, which although it is a bit shabby, was interesting for a visit of about one hour. We followed it up with a guided Prague Communism and Nuclear Bunker tour (Prague Special Tours) and the two complemented each other very well. Most of the displays... More

The Museum of Communism (or, more aptly, museum of anti-communist propaganda) in Prague was certainly an experience. To begin with, it took us a good 20 minutes of walking around a McDonald's and a casino to find it, before we realised that it was actually up the set of stairs that led to the casino (although this wasn't very well...

This small museum is more like a private collection. There is a large amount of written info, and not much stuff to see. Towards the end of the short visit it was information overload. Worth going if you have 30-45 mins to kill, but would not go out of my way, unless you are a history nut.

I'm currently a final year solely studying the Soviet Union in the 1950s and 1960s and so I thought I might go here and not learn anything new, but was so excited to go anyway! I'm so glad I was wrong! The museum does appear to be a little old, and a few things could do with updating but I... More

We spent a wet morning touring this thought provoking museum & came away with a more insightful view into the recent history of Czech Republic. I knew very little about the nation or its recent history. We went slowly round this museum, reading everything at each exhibit. I have an even greater affection for this beautiful country after learning about... More

If I hadn't been shown this museum I wouldn't of found it. It is in the middle of the high street in New Town, Na Prikope 10, you need to look for the McDonalds sign. There are flags of scary Russian dolls on the lamp posts outside the museum. You go through a tunnel, McDonalds is on one side and... More

A bit dated and in need of modernisation but overall a very informative experience and my teenage daughter really enjoyed it too.

A small museum with lots of boards to read and a number of relatively unconnected objects. I would have liked a little less to read about the straight facts and a few more stories of ordinary lives under the different regimes. It could/should have been better

A detailed run through communism in Prague through the ages. Despite the staff being a bit stern, it was informative and the video of protests was moving.

Thank MrsSWBrennan

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.
