Museum of Communism, Prague

3.4
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.

  • It looks like a museum with the contents of 1954... oriented and non-source comments. It looks like a product from USAID and radio free Europe. Good museography... It must be that the message passed not? Moreover, there is no respect for European values of linguistic diversity and very expensive. A real thing made in USA.

  • Museum full of ideas and information on a fundamental period for European history. Period finds, illustrative panels, multimedia, reconstructions, testimonies. Beautiful posters of socialist propaganda. I hope it gets further enriched and magnified.

  • Everyone should see this place. Really well done museum in a very modern style. The tickets are not expensive at all. The gift shop is pretty amazing especially for people who still remember this Era.
  • Incredibly detailed and thoughtful exhibit that takes you through the decades. Adds much needed context for the Czech Republic and helps the viewer understand its place within communism from the late 19th century to the Velvet Revolution. Worth the time!
