  • After you have visited the church, go down to see the crypt, where the paratroopers were hiding and died during the siege. The front room as you enter is set up as a small museum. The entrance is...  more »
  • This was the place I most wanted to see on my visit to Prague. I had read about Operation Anthropoid and seen the Anthropoid movie and was not disappointed. It's an amazing story of courage and...  more »
  • Always been interested in WW2 history so visiting here was a must on my first non business trip to Prague. Not disappointed it was really interesting and moving too, highly recommended.  more »
  • Some will be surprised some will be shocked however; this museum is a very powerful reminder of mans inhumanity to man, and It was; John Stuart Mill, who said in 1867: “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” I only hope that if I were called upon to act for right against wrong I would have the strength to do as the Church Elders and Czech underground were called to do. If you care about anything this is a must see stop in Prague. If you don’t know the story you soon will. Free entry and free hand out material, all excuses to visit gone. I’m not saying you will ‘ enjoy’ however you will be forever better informed. And ...:- to the toilets,good clean well maintained
  • Nice place with great history. Worth visiting and it will only take about 30mins to an hour of your time throughout the entire museum. Admissions are free but the toilet would need a very long queue! Who am I to bargain, it's already free.
  • Great memorial to some brave men on the site where it all happened. Small, informative and sobering. You don't necessarily have to be into WWII history, or history at all for that matter to appreciate this. I visited with my sister and daughter (me 50, sister (not) daughter 22) and we all enjoyed it. It's a little off the usual tourist track but definitely worth the effort.
  • We watched the film and seeing the place itself was very interesting. To get the background on the heroes who carried out the assination was also great.
  • Well worth the visit. Very interesting and well done exhibit. A fantastic story.
