A lot of interesting information. Less text or more chairs would have been appreciated.
The content was good and the price was reasonably.

Information was well-presented, engaging and easy to follow. There was a lot of information, but it was well-arranged and there were pictures and videos to break it up.
They're clearly thought about the experience of the museum and the seats in front of the exhibits were much appreciated!
I would definitely recommend as you learn a lot about Czech history and communism in general.

Went in with very little knowledge about the Communist regime in Prague - left with a much better understanding. Mostly well laid out although the signs are slightly hard to follow at times simply because you follow a numbered order and the next number isn't always obvious, but this wasn't a serious hindrance. They gave me a voucher for free coffee but when I went up to the cafe it was a 20 minute wait so didn't go for it. Overall, the museum is really interesting and the English signs are excellent and helpful. I didn't spend more than an hourish here just because I'm a fast reader - the pace of the visit probably would depend on that.

Really interesting museum, visited yesterday and was completely absorbed. The layout is perfect, and the storytelling really presses home some of the intracisies of the communist rain, including their influence over media, sports and emigration. Also details the failings of communist Czechoslovakia and it's eventual downfall. Highly recommend.

The teens really enjoyed the visit. I introduced the 12 and 14 year olds to Marxist ideas before we went in and put historical context on them. The interactive exhibition was very thorough and challenged all of our ideas and assumptions. Excellent discussion on hegemony followed with 16 year old. (One poster stated that conservative estimates put deaths linked to Marxism at 100 million and while I accept this awful figure, I wanted to know how many deaths are linked to new managerialism and capitalism)
