A little out of the way, but well worth your time.

Fascinating display of LOTS of military memorabilia, uniforms, etc, and you will leave with a pretty good sense of where the Czech people have been in the various wars in Europe... read more

Fascinating display of LOTS of military memorabilia, uniforms, etc, and you will leave with a pretty good sense of where the Czech people have been in the various wars in Europe. The most interesting display for me was the one that depicted the assasination of the Third Reich ruler whose killing prompted Hitler to destroy an entire Czech village, once... More

Wonderful museum and free entry! Walked from the centre of Prague which was a casual 20 minute walk and well worth it to visit this museum and the National Memorial on Vitkov Hill. Spent a couple of hours in the museum. Some very moving exhibitions and was nice to see a group of local school children visiting, very educational for... More

This is one of three sites of the Czech armed forces museum; the other two are outside the city and contain the tank and aircraft collections. It covers the story of the Czechs who thought in exile in both World Wars and the development of the regular Czech army in the 1920s and 1930s as the nation was founded in... More

The bad news is that you only get one tank, at the entrance, but the rest of the museum makes up for it. Some of the best European WWI display items apart from Belgium's museum. Fuselage of a German fighter, but tons of medals and uniforms along with smaller weapons and cannons, some of which were unique, including a Schneider... More

We found this place through trip advisor and I can honestly say it is a great place to visit. A little bit out of the way but easily accessed by public transport. The museum had a lot of very interesting displays, especially the WW1 exhibition. The staff were very friendly and, amazingly, the museum was free! We learnt a lot... More

It's a great museum where can you see a lot of stuff from World War 1 and 2. Very interesting for kids, who learn in school about that.

This free museum was a great find and my son and I loved it. The staff were very friendly and all the information panels have an English translation. We spent nearly two hours there - a record for my son who is just 6, but he would have happily stayed longer. Lots of displays with real uniforms, guns, swords and... More

We took the Metro and then followed the brown signs for about half a mile to the museum which is set up high on a hill. It is surprisingly free to enter but full of interesting exhibits from WW1 and 2 with some earlier and later. There are fantastic displays of uniforms and weapons. The signs are all in English...
