#5 of 189 in Museums in Czech Republic
Specialty Museum Museum
Discover Communist-era Prague at KGB Museum, located just down the street from the city's famed medieval castle. Established by a group of enthusiastic collectors of KGB memorabilia, this private museum contains a large collection of spy cameras and interrogation devices, as well as a series of rare photographs taken in 1968 by a KGB officer on assignment in Prague. The museum also displays some of the more bizarre artifacts from the Communist period, including Lenin's death mask, Trotsky's murder weapon, and a radio taken from the cabinet of Lavrentiy Beria, the chief of the Soviet secret police apparatus during World War II.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.

  • This was a very cool visit. I love history and especially cold war history, so this was a blast! A real insight into Soviet lifestyle.  more »

  • A very interesting experience. Great collection of original items from mostly soviet and less Czech communist past. But the most remarkable thing is the guide himself who tells stories behind objects in an unexpected emotional and acting manner. In Addition to his natural accent you dive in in a real atmosphere of these past times what feels like a real adventure. Would recommend it for everybody.
  • The guy really put on a show and tells interesting facts about the KGB past. He runs the place by himself which makes it very layed back which is cool
  • Me and my girlfriend went visit this museum today. It was really amazing. The owner is really knowledgeable about all the historical facts and te items he is presenting. It has been a mesmerizing journey through not only KGB history, but also the troubled times surrounding its evolution. Furthermore, the owner has an amazing collection of KGB-related items, and is keen enough to let you handle some of them. Definitely a place to visit, really worth it! Thanks again to the owner for this very interesting moment!
  • Didn't want us there and couldn't have been more obvious. Showed up right after my child fell asleep in her stroller. The guy walks around the corner and looks at my whole family and says the next tour starts at 1. It was 1248 so we said we would wait. It was only after it was clear we had no intention of leaving that the gentleman decided to try to get us to leave by telling us it isn't for kids. We said it's fine she's asleep and it wont be a problem. The guy then starts getting rude asking my wife if she can guarantee that my child will stay asleep. We got the hint and left.
  • We search the weird things to do in Prague. and we got one of them KGB museum. we walked in. the man was very nice and funny went to a lot of details it was very nice and very nice experience as well. Go for it.
