Good museum but a LOT of reading. Slightly disappointing at the lack of interactive activities. Recommended that you know something about the history of communism. My partner- major interested in this area- enjoyed it and found it interesting. However my lack of knowledge meant I...More

Highly recommended visit through the history of communism as lived by the Czech population, from the naive early days, all the way through the horrors of decades of USSR-controlled dictatorship leading to ecological disasters, total mis-planned resources utilisation, cultural annihilation and human mass-tragedy. A true...More

We took around 1.5 hours to visit this museum. It was a very interesting walkthrough of communism after WW2 in Czechoslovakia, through to liberation in the late 1980s. It is very text heavy with little interactive exhibits (I wouldn't recommend with young children), but it...More

first things first: yes, it is expensive and yes, it may be boring for many of today's 14-18 year olds, as there is nothing to push, press, play, no thrill ride or anything, it is a museum with modern technology, with historic artefacts and with...More

Visiting this museum was probably one of the highlights of my trip to Prague. I thought it was really well designed and provided so much in-depth knowledge of the history of Czech Communism. It's not an exhibit you can whizz through though, so allow a...More

It was very expensive and didn't really have any artifacts or items to display. Instead you walk through reading long essays at each point. I'm a massive history buff so I don't usually mind this (also particularly interested in the history of communism) but this...More

This place is very interesting. It is an interactive place, working with prints, videos, testimonies and objects. There is a clear explanation, also in English. A must when you wanted to know more about Czechia and its history.
