(3.7/5 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.

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.

  • Very nice discovery. The scenography of the Museum allows you to delve into the terrible world of F. Kafka. Not very funny, but essential for those who want to get back at the top of this writer and the engines of his work life.

  • For many the Museum is appealing, could weigh down as Mr. K, but I do not powaliło, mainly because that information appear in German, the price is inadequate to the time spent in the kroller. I thought that the more I find out about his work, about the stories associated with the formation of, and information about the family of Kafka, the origin of the parents, about whom is romansował. Immediately I tuned is completely different, which is why I am disappointed. The same form of presentation is interesting-all in the darkroom.

  • It's a great way to know more about the writer and how was Prague during that time, the life of the different people in it and the tension it was under. Also a perfect explanation of why the author wa...  more »

  • 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.
