Not easy to find, as there is no outside sign hanging to indicate there is a museum, located next to the McDonald's. The Museum of Communism is well worth the visit, for those interested in Cold War history. You may have to rely on a guidebook map to find the place.
Entering through double doors that is marked Casino, you go up the stairs, and enter the museum on your left. After paying and showing your ticket, you are greeted by a statue of Vladimir Lenin, holding the Soviet flag.
The museum tells the story of communism in Czechoslovakia (as it was known at the time), from World War II till the Velvet Revolution in 1989. It chronicles the different aspects of communism, not only the history of it, but also how it affected daily life. Displays include a classroom, a workshop, propaganda posters, busts of Stalin & other Communists (who have been reduced to just sitting on the museum floor), among others. Also, there is a video that shows footage of various events leading to the Velvet Revolution.
Very informative and interesting, as it got into the history and how it affected the people who had to experience it, first-hand.
