Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Prague / Museum of Communism
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.

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.
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.
