Visiting here is a good way to spend an hour. There are some interesting displays but I found the museum a bit overrated.

It was moving experience. It made me think of things to come, as the Lord said. All that will be repeated, only worse. It does not take much time to visit, for it has just a few items, comparing with other museums. But I advise...More

We went here on a whim as we passed. It's cheep and there is a lot to see. It is mainly just machines but it is a real eye opener. It's over a few floors so be prepared to walk.

This museum is interesting, but not amazing. The displays include many devices, but I am uncertain if these were actually used, or modern reproductions. Many images reproduced (relatively low quality) from postcards and books. The displays are divided on three floors, so you should be...More

Special place. Worth visiting.. not expensive (you can by ticket for this museum and the wax one.) Located in the city center.

A very interesting museum, in several different languages, however no seats anywhere so can get quite tiring and feet will ache

Good way to kill half hour, or lose £5 worth of Czech Koruna. The museum has what it says on the tin, but this isn't something I'd recommend to anyone. The museum itself is dated, but maybe it's maintained in that way to add to...More

This museum is so interesting. It was quite grusome, but the historical references were fabulous. A great way to spend a rainy day. Teenagers would love it

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
