Though many exhibits contain loads of texts, some untranslated, there are also many visual interpretations of Kafka's works that are very interesting as well as memorabilia from his life. The museum is interesting and worth visiting for anyone who likes Kafka.

Worth visiting, there's a nice courtyard in front of the museum, a cafe, interesting statues. Recommended.

in my own experience when speaking about writers i dont think museums are important at all, nice place to understand more about this genius, but not a must.

Now, Franz Kafka - there's a name and being a Theatre and Drama student of old - one I am very familiar with. Am I familiar with the fact that he is Czech, not German? I am now. This exhibition is quite difficult to navigate,...More

I have to be 100% honest and say that I was incredibly disappointed in this museum. The exhibits were laid out in an abstract and challenging way (in what we can only surmise was an homage to Kafka's style) but sadly they did not work...More

As an admirer of Kafka's work, visiting this museum was a must when in Prague. The exhibition tells do much about his life and lays out the background to his novels: the city of Prague at his time, the community and his family. If you...More

A creative and very interesting approach to curating Kafka while placing him in the context of his home town. The curators have obviously decided to make the museum as puzzling yet ultimately rewarding as any of Kafka's novels. Recommended if you don't require a traditional...More

I am a Kafka fan, so I was excited to visit the museum but unsure of what to expect. Some of the sections were creative and interesting, others were a tad tedious. Look for the file cabinet rooms. I did learn many details about Kafka's...More

I was expecting this to be a much better museum. English inscriptions in the museum are very difficult to follow and almost unintelligible in some cases. Most of the artifacts in the museum are old books and letters with no translation and very little description....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

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
