The museum is small and quite dimmed. Not all information are translated to English. I can't read German and felt that I am missing quite a bit. But I think it's good to go and visit to understand his childhood and influences on his writing.

The museum perfectly recreates the atmosphere of Kafka's novels. Inside you feel burdened, the rooms are dark and squeaky, everything fits perfectly Kafka's universe. It is one of the most experiential museums I have ever visited. If you like Kafka, it leaves you troubled and...More

In the Kafka museum, you will see photocopies of manuscripts, photocopies of photos of Kafka, and short informations about Kafka's life, all from his Czech Wikipedia page. This, for the small price of 7,5 euros. Disappointing. Avoid.

This would be a must and very informative if a Kafka fan. My previous knowledge of Kafka was superficial at best and I learned quite a bit about many sad aspects of his life. The exhibits try to create an immersive experience that convey a...More

You do not only learn about the life of Kafka, but also about the life in the city of Prague in the early 20th century. Pictures of the old getto of Jozefov, totally different in comparison with how it looks now with all the glamerous...More

Did not know a lot about Kafka but the museum gave a good insight in his life and work. Made me curious about some of his books. At first the museum looks quite small but it's bigger than you'd think. Aesthetic wise it is really...More

I can understand that if you are a huge Kafka fan you would want to go here and would enjoy it, but neither me nor my family belongs to that category so the visit left us with nothing special. Go here if you enjoy Kafkas...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

Response from Mayur S | Reviewed this property |
The sculpture in front of the Kafka museum is typical of the humour of Franz Kafka. He wanted to use technology and art to make people laugh. I saw a lot of people laughing as they watched the statues. If you read a little... More
