Create an itinerary including Franz Kafka Muzeum
Dedicated to the life and work of one of the city's most celebrated authors, Franz Kafka Muzeum contains a large collection of Kafka's private letters and photographs. Although Kafka wrote in German, the city of Prague remained the heart of his personal and professional world. The museum explores the relationship between the city and the writer, providing a glimpse into Kafka's universe of literary characters tortured by personal alienation, physical brutality, and cold-hearted bureaucracy. Take a look at the displays featuring first editions of Kafka's major works, as well as his personal diaries, drawings, and manuscripts. Pick up Kafka's complete works at the on-site shop. Put Franz Kafka Muzeum into our Prague day trip planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Prague.

  • The museum commemorates Kafka's life perfectly. The dark theme goes nicely with his work. Learned a lot more about his life and it was really cool to see his handwriting in person.

  • A lot to read though
  • Mostly reproductions, and they set out the goal to put you in the mood of Kafka's Prague. I didn't feel they met that. And not worth the price of entry overall.
  • Tells the story of Kafka's life, how he became the writer he was and a bit about his creation. I think is was well put together to reflect the feel of his work. I took the time to read and explore and enjoyed.
  • If you are a fan of Franz Kafka you MUST visit the place. I loved every detailed in it. I enjoyed the atmosphere where they did great job describing Kafka’s writings.
  • Great place if you are interested in Kafka, but very pricey for a small place. There is also a gift shop, but it mostly has books, and very little Kafka souvenirs, and also is kinda expensive, so it is not a must-visit place. Might be worth your visit if you have time to do so, as it is near old town.
