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.

  • Interesting place, a cosy little Museum. After the tour you can take a picture with some weapons and uniforms. An interesting excursion, the only downside is that only one guide and you may have to wait for the end of previous tours

  • From all sights of Prague are separately want to mention the KGB Museum. You are immediately immersed in the atmosphere of those times. The number of original samples varied weapons and other accessories team will not leave indifferent any connoisseur. But the main highlight of I still believe a guide. It was interesting to learn a lot of facts about the development of Spy technology in the SOVIET UNION, as well as discuss about food.

  • Andre was a wealth of knowledge and he is animatedly passionate about his endeavor to preserve the history of the former Soviet Union. Interesting, fun, and was very surprised at the rare pieces he had in the shop. He's been collecting items for over thirty years. He even had some original Voice of America tapes! The admission was 350KR and well worth it. His knowledge of the history of the former USSR was more than impressive. This is a definite MUST SEE on your way down the hill from the Prague Castle.
  • This is a one man show. The problem is that he is passionate about history, but he is presenting you the crap that he gathered along the years. He has no structured way of presenting and he had 1 room with his stuff, which he talks about for 1 hour. Basically the is 1 hour of jumping in and out between years in history with no logic! If you are curious to see a crazy guy, which strongly believes in communism for 1 hour while standing, then go to it. The highlight of this is that you will see some small spy cameras from the WWII, and at the end he will let you take pictures with a few weapons.
  • This museum has many great antique items that contribute well to the history of the soviets. The tour was amazing. The man running the show is INCREDIBLY passionate about his job and makes history very interesting. This is a must see if you are looking for inexpensive entertainment and education.
  • A must see while in Prague. The guide is one of the most knowledgeable, interesting, and passionate people you will ever meet. Definitely recommended.
  • Amazing russian guy with great histories and a big collection from the cold war spies.
