Step behind the Iron Curtain with a visit to Museum of Communism, dedicated to the story of ordinary Czechs struggling for democracy in the decades following World War II. Established in 2001 by businessman Glenn Spicker, the museum is located in an 18th-century palace near the center of the city. Spicker gathered many of the displayed artifacts, which include photographs and military objects, at flea markets and junk shops in and around Prague. The museum's three galleries offer visitors a fully immersive experience, complete with film screenings and educational lectures. Start your exploration at the museum's reconstructed classroom, offering insight into a day in the life of a Communist-era schoolchild. Plan a trip to Prague easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Museum of Communism reviews
Loads of information. Very informative on what Czech people went through. The museum is located near the Palladium in the center of Prague.

Yes. This museum will feel a lot like reading a textbook because there is so much to read. But the physical objects certainly make up for it. It's good to go early because I went here before 10:00...

The museum tells u a visual story of what communism and the soviet influence did to Czechia and Eastern Europe in general. I loved how detailed it described historical events but also the day-to-day life in the communist Czechia. Visit and allocate enough time to reflect.
Outstanding museum. So much history. Really informative exhibits with a lot to read and absorb. I think they did a wonderful job explaining the pain and suffering the Czech people have gone through prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution. Well done!!! Leave 2-3 hours to really get the most out of this museum. A lot to read and well worth the time if you love history.
Great Museum! Very interesting history and facts. It truly brings to life the spirit of Communism. Maybe a little biased to the West but that's understandable. Definitely visit if you have the time.
It was a big and intriguing story about the past in Czech Republic. Many small stories and objects to see. Also some fascinating stories from people. I would suggest adding more chairs close to the stories told by some people, considering some would take 5+minutes, which might be hard for some older people. Still highly recommend giving it a visit, especially if you are into history
There's nothing special about this museum apart from the pictures and history about the Soviet origins of the Czechoslovakia. OK, it's important to remember and tell the young generations about the devastating nature of the communism but charging approximately 20 Euros for the stories that you can easily find from a simple Google search or from the Wikipedia page of the communist Czechoslovakia is nothing more than robbery. If you want to learn about Soviets or communism in general, go read Orwell or GG Marquez or Solzhenitsyn or whatever but do not get conned by this so called museum.
