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.

  • It captures really the atmospere of the books and explains the tragedy of his life. Really good for Kafka Fan 
  • A different museum that is semi museum, semi modern art gallery. The curation is worth visiting. Enriched by audio effects, the setting takes you into the brain and the psyhological state of Kafka. Eirie and indulgent, especially if you are aware of his works.
  • If you know even the smallest bit about Kafka, you will love this museum. More than just the history and facts of his life, the whole museum really pulls you into his way of thinking. Very dark and artful. Highly highly recommend if you've read any Kafka.
  • Very interesting, and a great selection of historical interest throughout. Gives a real sense of his life and work.
  • Good view good service nice food
  • If you have Kafka reading experience, yoy must see the museum to feel the atmosphere in his novels. Location of the museum is central and there are some preety coffee shops around.
