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.

We went there because we are interested in communism and history. I thought it was too much reading and too little variation in the presentations. They should also set up more chairs to rest on.

Quite expensive for what it has to offer.. I thought it was bigger, with much more information. Pretty basic.

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. Not worth a...More

I am old enough to remember the attempt of "Communism With A Human Face" being tried in Czechoslovakia and it being suppressed by the Soviet Union with images of tanks rolling through the streets of Prague. There are many people still alive in the Czech...More

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

Nove Mesto (New Town)
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

I wouldn't think so. It's a small and kind of out of the way museum and didn't seem to get that much traffic when we were there. And I think we were there on a weekend.

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.
