  • Prague City Museum is housed in a beautiful building in neorenæssance, designed by the architect Antonín Balšánek, built 1896-1898. Muzeum města island opened here in 1900, but already in 1883 had the Museum opened its doors at a different address. The exhibitions in the Museum are really good with lyrics both in Czech and English, and here you are very clever at Prague about the area's history dating back to the Paleolithic era, as in Bohemia is counted from about 2.5 million years before the birth of Christ. The earliest objects on display, however, is from the iron and bronze ages. On the first floor of the Museum is seen Antonio Sacchettis model of Prague from 1817-1822, a whopping ' creation ', breathtaking to watch. Many of the streets in the center of town, Charles Bridge and the area up to the castles will recognize you easily. Muzeum města island is not an art museum, but anyway here is a part of fine paintings and especially sculptures in carved wood. On the first floor are arranged there also special exhibitions. In the Museum's basement displayed a computer-animated film in 3D, which hovers around the city streets, will be lifted up in the sky, coming down again, in and out of houses, through the streets, under bridges and up into the sky again. It was not a particularly exciting experience, but fortunately was not more than ten minutes long film. I spent about an hour in Muzeum města, the island was very well entertained and afterwards part wiser on Prague's history.

  • This museum, housed in a neo-Renaissance building, located a bit out from the city centre but easily accessible by metro. The Palace has a beautiful architecture, both external and internal, and is home to the birth of the city, from prehistory to the present. Very nice on paper and wood model of the city of 1826.

  • A fine museum about the history of Prague from pre-history to the 1700s. After you have read about Czech history, taken the tours, walked the the narrow streets, and gotten a feel for the terrain, you will want to see this museum. It nicely ties together the various cultural, religious, and historical themes of the city so that you will understand more clearly the forces that shaped this beautiful city.
  • Unfortunately closed on Mondays, but close to the bus terminal so its nice to go there if you have a stopover in Prague.
  • I loved this museum so much. I had a great experience. The entire staff is lovely, kind and helpful. Loved the 3D cardboard model of XVI century's Prague. The children's area is great!! Highly recommended.
  • This museum traces the history of this area all the way back the 6000 years that Prague has been continuously inhabited. The many artifacts are extremely well displayed, from sculpture to tools, armor and hardware. Impressive.
  • Nice little museum with very sympathic people! Not a lot to see but if you've got the time it'll make for a nice visit!!
