Small but informative and well documented museum. You learn a lot about Franz Kafka and they have many first editions of Kafka's books. Photos, books, stories. Very interesting. In front of the museum you can see a nice sculpture in a fountain.

A visit to Prague, the city of K, as it is known to Kafka aficionados, is incomplete without a visit to this museum, even if you have not been stumped by Kafka's abstruse writings. A small space dedicated to the writer 's memory, the museum quietly beckons you from the Charles bridge & it houses whole lot of letters, diaries,... More

Wasn't too sure what to expect, as I didn,t know more than the basic Kafka history. I found the museum a delight to explore and learn more about the man, his city and his works. Well worth the visit if only to escape the maddening crowds around Charles bridge.

The Franz Kafka Museum is well worth a visit. Set along the river in an unassuming building, the museum is quite dramatic on the inside, dark and almost haunting, appropriately Kafka. The collection is impressive and broad, much of the presentation but not all is available in English.

This museum used various audio visual and exhibition techniques to give visitors a feeling for Kafka, his life and works. It was an experience as well as an education. I was sorry that not all of the texts were translated into English, felt that I missed something.

We entered the museum hoping to learn about Kafka and his writings. We left very disappointed. Most of the museum walls are covered with quotes, that could be really interesting if someone bothered translating them from German to make it English speakers friendly. There were many photos of people without any explanation of who they were or how they were... More

We did not actually go into the museum, but enjoyed the grounds and the shop. It is a good location and easily walkable form Charles Bridge or from the Symphony Hall Bridge. There are many interesting shops in and around the area.

If you have any interest in the novelist Frank Kafka, this is a must - see museum. While it does not fully explain Kafka's obsessions, it goes a long way in terms of decoding the author's influences.

Challenging exhibit with amusing statue at front which embarrassed our children when we sent them photo via whatsnap! Not for the faint hearted or those who have had dealing with our bureaucratic world. But well worth the effort. An amazing but sad life. Bought the books when we came home.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
