Kafka Museum, Prague

(3.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the life and work of one of the city's most celebrated authors, Kafka Museum 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 Kafka Museum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Prague tour planner.

  • Before you go in, you´ll find the two men peeing statue situated in the most charming square. As you walk in, light disappears, deep black walls and boarded up windows make you feel a bit uncomfortabl...  more »
  • This is no ordinary Museum. But it's best to convince yourself:) Nice little shop, of course, is przymuzealny in which a collector boxes zapalek can acquire the real exhibits. In addition to the courtyard stands a statue of Petra Cernego. :) A miracle!

  • This museum does an incredible job at replicating the atmosphere inside of Kafka's mind. It is complete with obscure music, warped films, first editions, love letters, and manuscripts. This museum sufficiently walks you through Kafka's life from understanding his loves to understanding the city he grew up in. Definitely worth the money. Students get 50% off.
  • The museum is good if you like Kafka already. For someone who doesn't know his work, can be boring. There are a lot of quotes in german, no idea why they don't translate it. And also you are not allowed to take pictures, like if they are hiding a secret treasure or something, but it's no big deal. (maybe it's about conservation of a few documents, if so, excuse my ignorance. It seemed like arrogance tho)
  • If you have read any of his romans, you should visit this museum to understand it better. Very well made.
  • Never read any Kafka but will have to now. Feels more like an art installation than a museum, the sound effects are particularly well done
  • What an interesting and thoughtful store. Great unique items. We especially loved viewing and purchasing postcards for the grandchildren.
