Really worthwhile museum. Very sad. Absolutely awful what the Czechs had to put up with. Yes there is a lot of reading. And standing reading can be tiring. But it's fascinating. Though to be perfectly honest, quite depressing. I'm ashamed to say I knew nothing...More

If you don’t like reading lots don’t bother with this as it’s all reading. The exhibit is good, lots of information written in the walls. And lots of pictures to see. This was not an overly expensive exhibit and we were given a token for...More

While I agree that there is a lot of reading in this museum (a feature to which some reviewers object) I’d like to point out that there are several films too. One in particular made me wonder what the uniformed and plain clothes police assaulting...More

We had only 2 hours to spare and managed to glean most of the information we wanted. A mixture of realia, video clips, photos and facts - the right balance for us.

As others have said there is a lot of reading, but then how else do you explain communism! It could do with a few more seats to let you read the information. Free espresso at the end was lovely.

Museum is in a great location and is well presented. Very interesting and I would recommend visiting, but be prepared to read! It could be slightly more interactive.

Interesting and worth a visit. But many of the displays are amateurish, very do-it-yourself. So lots of trivia here, but worthwhile nonetheless. Documents of a horrible time in modern Czech history.

We went on a city tour and saw lots of sites but really wanted to know more about what had happened to the people of the Czech Republic during the last hundred years. They have had a fascinating history and this museum was very informative....More

There is a lot of reading so not ideal if youre not a big reader. Very informative and interesting. Im not convinced it was worth the entry fee. Enjoyable nonetheless.

This is very interesting museum but there are not many artifacts. It consists mostly of long paragraphs of text. The text is very interesting but can get a bit much at times. I definitely would have preferred more exhibits as those that were there were...More

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.
