  • It's very cool place, totally recommend to go with your kids or husband - you will find a lot of interesting exhibitions, but the best is about cars, planes and other vehicles. You can follow all history of mechanical engineering development, see the oldest cars in very good condition. Love it! 4 starts for other exhibitions which could be organized better.
  • Really interesting museum that needs 2 hours to really see properly. The main hall is really the most interesting bit, with the history of various transport types, including push bicycles, motor bikes, flying and cars. There are also a lot of models of planes etc to describe parts of the history they either dont have the real thing or not enough space for a full size exhibit. Not all the exhibits are in English however. They also have the car off a high ranking wartime German general. This is a museum that IMO isn't really designed for tourists, but for Czechs and school trips, but if you are interested in the history of this country it is a great way to spend a couple of hours. 🙂
