    Museum doesn't accept Euros keep that in mind.As though you learn a lot about Kafka there are not many personal things.It's a bit of a disappointing and it's more like a Poe museum than Kafka.

    If you have any excitement about Kafka, the museum makes you excited more. It's really small and you can be dissappointed by the size. They should start giving an audio guide as soon as possible.

    Kafka is fascinating - this museum not necessarily. 100% text based ... Some interesting stuff, yet too pricy.

    Good museum, in addition of showing pieces of Kafka's life, also try to pull us into his books atsmophere and to situate in Prague's history.

    better if you save at least an hour to make a proper tour in the museum. the museum has two floors which are full with all kind of information about Kafka.

    Well-organized, interesting, beautiful&mysterious museum, it's worth visiting even if you didn't read Kafka, just for aesthetic pleasure. Don't forget to ask the lady on the entrance for a guidebook.

    Very expensive ticket. Very few original manuscripts, almost all facsimilie. Light fixtures poorly architected,invalidating the assessment of various materials.I was disappointed. do not recommend.

    If you're interested in Kafka this is the place to go.It has original manuscripts and drawings and the museum itself is has a very modern, sensory experience.
