Museum of Communism, Prague

3.5
Step behind the Iron Curtain with a visit to Museum of Communism, dedicated to the story of ordinary Czechs struggling for democracy in the decades following World War II. Established in 2001 by businessman Glenn Spicker, the museum is located in an 18th-century palace near the center of the city. Spicker gathered many of the displayed artifacts, which include photographs and military objects, at flea markets and junk shops in and around Prague. The museum's three galleries offer visitors a fully immersive experience, complete with film screenings and educational lectures. Start your exploration at the museum's reconstructed classroom, offering insight into a day in the life of a Communist-era schoolchild. Plan a trip to Prague easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The museum is very interesting, everything you want to know about the history of communism in Czech Republic is explained. There’s a lot of reading involved but it is so intriguing that you can’t stop...  more »
  • Had long thought about whether I would spend the 290 kronor on it. Was in the end about 3 hrs there and still couldn't read all the texts... I would have liked more exhibitions, but in the relatively narrow space many paintings are also squeezed close to each other. Nevertheless, I found them very impressive. The subjective depiction of communism is appropriate for tourists in Prague if you want to learn about the history of the country. The extent to which the presented view is representative of the country must be able to be judged for oneself.

  • Easy-to-follow & it takes about two hours to finish. It has a nice, simple interior with a reasonable entrance fee. It was absolutely roasting when I was walking inside it though which made it a bit sleepy. It served up some interesting displays and memories of a not-so-distant past and also explained how the present is dictated currently.
  • Good place to visit, a bit pricey. I would definitely recommend to spend like 2 hours there and read some very interesting information about communism in Prague, also available to watch some videos and take cool pictures. Five stars to this place just because it's one of the best museum's I ever visited.
