Franz Kafka Muzeum, Prague

3.7
Dedicated to the life and work of one of the city's most celebrated authors, Franz Kafka Muzeum contains a large collection of Kafka's private letters and photographs. Although Kafka wrote in German, the city of Prague remained the heart of his personal and professional world. The museum explores the relationship between the city and the writer, providing a glimpse into Kafka's universe of literary characters tortured by personal alienation, physical brutality, and cold-hearted bureaucracy. Take a look at the displays featuring first editions of Kafka's major works, as well as his personal diaries, drawings, and manuscripts. Pick up Kafka's complete works at the on-site shop. Put Franz Kafka Muzeum into our Prague day trip planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Prague.

  • Trip to Prague, I could only get there. Fan or not of the author, we're having a good time. The rooms are arranged in a special way, interactive and exciting. I have very good memories of my visit!

  • I let lose in the narrow streets of this neighbourhood and chance arrive at a place where they sell chocolate and sweets and sali to the patio and there was the Museum. Outside is a peculiar sculpture of Cerny with two male urinating on Prague and move from left to right

  • Interactive, modern Museum. Not overwhelmed by it, on the contrary, it stimulates the imagination, allows for interpretations of Kafka's works in its own way. Of great interest is a monument at the Museum of Kafka. Nearby there is also a gift shop, in a fairly reasonable prices (but some souvenirs you can find cheaper outside the old town).

  • Museum of Photo Copies. This museum does not show anything new or even interesting artifacts related to Franz Kafka. All documents are facsemiles. Only a few first editions of his books are originals. No items belonging to the author are displayed. Not at all worth the entrance you pay.
  • Brilliant place, utlilizing space of the museum to actively engage the audience in an alternate experience. Must view for Kafka admirers and general enthusiasts about existentialism. Brilliant concepts in visualising the tantalizing effects of Kafka's fiction. Has a recreated video of old Prague, recreation of many of Kafka's important stories as well as many first manuscripts, illustrations and important information about Kafka and people around him.
  • I would only recommend this museum if you are a die-hard Kafka lover, as in you've read everything he ever wrote and are desperate to know more about him. Do be aware that lots of information here is in German, and only in German. Overall, not the greatest museological experience and I wouldn't really go just for the atmosphere. Recommended only for true Kafka-heads.
  • Disappointing museum. Recommended only if you are a true fan of his, and if you enjoy trying to read whats written on the glass. I left this place with a massive headache. You can find the same information in Wikipedia without becoming blind
  • Some interesting exhibits, but I think too much space was devoted to artistic interpretations of Kafka's work and not enough to other matters. For example, there is a one-sentence mention of Kafka's importance to the Communist-era resistance. An amplification of this would have been lovely.
