The museum is poorly executed and I left feeling like I wasted my time and money. Would not recommend

This is the most non-mainstream museum I ever visited. I can tell the lighting, sound and exhibition was purposely set up in a way to mimic the Kafkaesque. This is not an easy museum which you can just skip through. It is a serious museum...More

Take your Kafka receipt to the delightful Mucha Museum for half price admission there. The same applies if you visit Mucha first. Other than a vague definition of "Kafkaesque" I knew little before this visit. I agree with some of the negative comments yet I...More

The best part of this museum is to go to the shop and buy the map of Kafka places in Prague, its only 55k and there are about 8 different language versions. The as you walk around the town you can see the actual locations....More

More than you thought there was to learn about one of the giant minds and troubled souls of early 20th century thinkers, who died too young. The museum is comprehensive snd mostly easy to navigate and enjoy. One comment - some of the decals describing...More

At first I didn’t get what was going on, but after a while I kind of got into the strange noises and lighting that work to give you a “Kafkaesque”experience. I would have appreciated a more in depth look at his work, though.

Lots of information and examples of real transcripts. Felt sorry for Franz as he led a life of moral discrepancy.

Initially I was sceptical but in the end very pleasantly surprised. The sections are well organised and the inscriptions are very informative. Also original manuscripts and letters are on display. Well worth a visit!

In visiting this museum, you are not just learning about Franz Kafka--you are entering into a Kafkaesque experience. The darkness, the odd angles, the shadowy images, the odd and jarring soundtrack, the symbolic displays--all add to the slightly unsettling experience of reading a Kafka novel...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
