Museum of Communism is Here!

7

The Museum of Communism might be hard to find, but when you finally get inside you're in for an interesting trip back to a time that seems so much further away than only 20 years ago.

Seeing the spectacular poster with a babushka doll showing its sharp pointy teeth I just knew I had to go to the Museum Of Communism, located above McDonalds near the Mustek metro station in Prague’s main shopping district. It’s a fairly small museum, but that also makes it very intimate.

Seeing the nearly 1000 authentic items, ranging from tinned food to the reproduction of an interrogation room, was a really nice experience. It’s hard to imagine what life was like back then but it’s even harder to believe that it was merely 20 years since this was actually normal life for the Tjeckoslovakian citizen. At the end of the given path through the museum, you end up in a small room where you can watch a documentary about the years of communism. The disgust for the Soviet invasion and communism is evident all throughout the museum and stands in sharp contrast to its Russian counterparts.
