Whether or not you are a serious Kafka fan, this museum is full of interesting exhibits that draw you in and inform you about this fascinating writer. The David Cerny peeing sculpture in the courtyard outside is a terrific bonus.

I’m not saying I’m a Kafka “fan” but I know his work and studied Metamorphosis as part of my A Levels, so I was looking forward to finding out more. This museum though over intellectualises the facts of his life on so many displays that...More

As a literature student, who has read quite a bit of Kafka, this was a very interesting experience. The focus of this exhibition relies mostly on Kafka’s personal life (example: relationship with his father) and not so much on his novels. It was very interesting...More

This is the most non-mainstream museum I ever visited. I can tell the lighting, sound and exhibition was purposely set up in a way to mimic the Kafkaesque. This is not an easy museum which you can just skip through. It is a serious museum...More
