Some of the negative reviews surprised me and made me want to pass my view on. Whilst written from the point of view that communism is a bad thing, it isn’t in your face biased. We spent approximately 90 minutes, there was quite a lot...More

The museum could do a better job presenting the information, most of all information, you need to read it. Information is in Czech and English. It is presented in a fashion that could look biased towards anti-communism, but let's face it, show me a country...More

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

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.
