(850+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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!

  • Super interesting muzeum that provides several information about the writer and the life on Prague in his times. Enough historical material, original letters and pieces of books. Very good place to visit. It's a shame that the store does not sell his books. An adjacent library would be a nice touch instead of two coffee places. Well located and easy to reach.
  • Lots of information and history about Kafka but a lot of the museum was in German. The layout of the museum is a bit kooky as well with lots of winding corridors and strange crow sounds. Definitely go if you're a big Kafka fan!
  • I enjoyed visiting this museum. There's an interesting sculpture in front too. I'd recommend you to check it out.
  • I had a great time there! The arrangement of the museum was incredible, the interior is completely black and the artefacts are put on pedestal bathed in light, which makes the atmosphere intimate and compells one to pay one's attention to them!
  • Nice experience on the authors life. Gives you a good perspective on his sorrows and the prague of his day
