While there are many important pieces that have transformed this city, this particular museum gives a flowing narrative which helps provide the framework for what has happened after 1918. In addition the Langweil Model in the basement is an extra visual tool to understand what...More

This is not a large museum and the exhibits are on the first floor. It covers Prague's prehistory as well as history. Apart from the more usual exhibits, there are some startling pieces, especially the C17th locking mechanisms. There are also some splendid panoramic maps...More
