Full description
Understand what daily life was like in Communist-era Czechoslovakia. Walk through authentically reconstructed spaces from classrooms to bedrooms, see original artifacts, and absorb detailed insights into the post-war history of the country. With your admissions ticket, you will be able to cover an exhibition spanning nearly 1,500 m² and 62 panels, focusing on the totalitarian regime that ruled the country from the February putsch in 1948 until the Velvet Revolution in 1989. Learn more about topics divided up into thematic sections, such as politics, sports, economics, education, Socialist Realist art, propaganda, the People’s Militias, the army, the police and StB (secret police), censorship, courts, and other institutions. Learn about show trials and political labor camps during the Stalinist era.   Get an authentic feel of the era and enter and interact with mock-ups of a shock worker’s workshop, a classroom, a child’s bedroom, and an interrogation room. As you make your way through the exhibition, gain a detailed overview with the aid of short videos, posters, and artifacts. Browse through a vast collection of photographic material from the Archive of the Czech News Agency, the Security Services Archive, the Archive of the Association of Forced Military Camp Laborers, and the personal collections of leading Czech photographers.   Take a break at any point during your visit in the museum café. Refresh yourself before visiting the cinema, where you can watch a short documentary about the communist era at regular intervals.

Very informative. So much to absorb; I could have spent the whole day there. Unfortunately, the entry ticket did not allow me to leave to get lunch and then return to the museum. Consequently, I only got through half of the museum. If I get back to Prague, I'll definitely go to this museum again and pick up where I left off.

Definitely worthwhile seeing! It’s a bit off the beaten track so it’s not something you’d see and decide to go too. It’s a really informative exhibition and everything is translated into English. It was a really worthwhile trip and we learned a lot! definitely recommend!

Tourists from the Czech Republic and international tourists mingled here. The Czech people consider this an important museum and rightfully so. It is well worth the time to visit and learn of the victimization of the people during the cold war and the communist era.
