Feels like you're walking through history. The museum captures the feeling of repression under the communist regime very well.

Communist museum in Prague is like a walk through the history. If you are a history lover, this place should be in your to-visit list. Though it is not very rich in artifacts but the overall presentation is really worth spending 2 hours there.

Great experience. Really helps you understand what the people went through and how fortunate anyone is who did not have to live under that kind of tyranny.

I found the Museum Komunismu to be very interesting and informative and I learned a lot about the history of the Czech Republic, including the rise of communism, the Soviet era, and the fall of communism. The only criticism is that there aren’t many exhibits...More

On a sweltering summer day, we were looking for something interesting to do inside. This museum particularly piqued our interests, so we trekked across town to check it out. It was definitely worth it. Providing the history of communism from the perspective of the people...More

Great to find a museum focused on recent history, after visiting lots of cathedrals and the castle etc. Lots of reading but a really informative insight into Czechoslavakia under communist rule.

I wouldn't think so. It's a small and kind of out of the way museum and didn't seem to get that much traffic when we were there. And I think we were there on a weekend.

It is hidden in between shops. It is small but very interesting. Maybe an 1.5 hrs.at most? When we went there were no lines and we bought tickets there.
