The Museum of Communism provided us with a great history of the Czech Republic and Prague during the second half of the 20th century. They did a great job of highlighting different aspects of Czech life under communism and the layout was very logical. There...More

For US baby boomers this was a reminder of what was, made more meaningful with clear labels and exhibits. Ironically, we asked several (young) waitstaff at nearby restaurants where the museum was located and neither knew or seemed to care. It's easy to find, though...More

A well-designed exhibition, with lots of information. We spent probably a couple of hours here. It was interesting to see the information about the statue of Stalin, and then later go to visit the spot where it once stood.

Be ready for lots of reading, but it is a well curated museum that my wife and I found very interesting. It gives a broad idea of communism in the area from its beginning to present day. I understand the reviews saying that it is...More

It was over £11 to get it, there was too reading and hardly any artefacts. Three pathetic reconstructions. It was really disappointing. I read everything, which was interesting, but not enough visuals to add to the writing. I didn’t go with children but it would...More

Very well designed and curated museum. You get to see items, photographs, simulations and text. Very informative; elaborated narrative but bias (anti communist sometimes) it is a must see museum when in Prague

This is a must see museum but one for grown-ups prepared to read and comprehend. Few artifacts but a lot of informative narrative and personal accounts by video. I was shocked by claims of bias by some reviewers. But the barbed wire fences, the electric...More

Avery interesting look at life under the communists in Prague, much of which was pure evil. A lot of facts that I was totally unaware of even through I live only a few hundred miles away.

We came across this new museum while walking in the streets of Prague. Clear and concise explanation of the history of the communist regime, ending just 30 odd years ago. Tragic for the people of Czech. This museum is easy to navigate through with videos,...More
