I was very impressed with this museum. The English translations on all historical aspects of communism in he Czech Republic was very well written and informative. I found this museum fascinating and compelling.
Although I had a good idea of Czech history I was impressed by how hard things have been for the people of this country, and also how resilient these friendly people are.
This is a must do for history fans.
This museum presents a very one sided argument about Communism: history told from a very anti-communist perspective. The issues covered by the museum never present alternative views from around the world... e.g.Western countries also poisoned crops through the use of heavy metals.

My husband and I visited this museum because we are very interested in the communism era. We found it super informative and interesting but were very tired of reading by the end, having read pretty much every display. Totally worth it if you're don't mind...More
Nearly 700 hundred meters 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 theaters. National Theater 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.
