Step behind the Iron Curtain with a visit to Muzeum komunismu, 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.

Five stars to this place just because it's one of the best museum's I ever visited.
