  • Spent half a day, but it was worth it! disadvantages-most of the exposition in the Czech and English language. But really all the interesting and thought. There is a café-Committee on budget and finance, delicious and the beer menu:). Children will're interested!

  • I haven't expected a Technical Museum to be so interesting. However, this museum has collections and exhibitions that everyone can relate to and enjoy in the objects that have marked our everyday life...  more »
  • This museum is very well organised, the excibits are in a very well condition and very well preserved. If you’re a car/engines addict this museum is a must. I felt like a kid walking inside.  more »

  • Very interesting! Worth a visit. Prague has a lot of tourist attractions, but this one is little known. We spent several hours there. The transport hall is the most spectacular, with a real Spitfire, a legendary Mercedes race car (driven by Fangio it seems), and many others.
  • Some parts were really interesting. It's a big place about 6 floors. Didn't manage to finish the lower floors as we were not as interested in mining. Great selection of all modes of transport as well as cameras, tv, lifestyle & household items. Good to visit on a rainy day
  • The main transportation exhibition is really impressive. Reserve a couple of hours, there is a lot to see. However, it is not very interactive and the space gets crowded easily. Very little seating options. The museum shop and cafeteria are quite disappointing.
  • A decent technology museum with a good selection of exhibits, especially on the main floor where they have some very impressive 19th century locomotives. The staff are reasonably friendly which can't be taken for granted in Prague but accessibility for people with strollers is very poor. While they have a wheelchair lift to get you down the stairs to the main exhibition hall level they refuse to use it for strollers which had us dragging our stroller up and down the stairs.
  • Best museum I've ever been to, so many exhibits. Not just about vehicles there is exhibits following all technological advances from home, health and industry. Would advise having a whole day to make the most of this magical place. Most exhibits have both English and Czech descriptions with loads of indepth history behind some of the vehicles. Restaurant is lovely really good food at a reasonable price, it is a bright and interesting place to sit too.
