I loved the Franz Kafka museum. Kafka is a great inspiration to me and this museum truly showed you his inner desire, inspirations, memories and so much more. It dives into his personal life to give you glimpses of his world.

The Kafka Museum opened in 2005in Prague, on the bank of the river Vltava. The exhibition consists of two sections - Existential space and Imaginary Topography - and is really worth a visit.

Calling all readers! This place is for you!! Frank Kafka is known for his books and this gives you a deeper look into Franz's life. Beautifully hidden while next to a cafe. Stop by the gift store to pick up a Kafka's books, posters, and other items. Again, if you love books and classic literature, check this out!!

For those with an interest in Kafka then this is a must-see but I can't imagine how people unfamiliar with his work would get anything out of it. There is a good shop and the exhibits are well laid out. The museum itself is quite small but here the quality definitely outstrips the quantity.

You can't visit Prague and not hear about Kafka at some point during your stay. A ticket to this museum is quite affordable, and gives a great insight into the life and work of Prague’s most famous writer. It delves into the connection between Kafka and the city which shaped him and his style. There are many original things on display here such as photos, and audio and visual accompaniments to keep a visit engaging. It's best for those who already have some interest and knowledge of Kafka.

Honestly, all I can remember is the animated statues of two men urinating on a map of the Czech Republic. If you had to remember only one thing about a museum, shouldn't it be something like that?

Not your typical museum...pretty interesting though trying to capture the inner working of Kafka's mind and his life experiences that influenced his writing

First to Review

The exhibit is phenomenal. I admit that I'm no expert on Kafka but i liked what I saw. There was just a sense of modern abstract ambiguity that I enjoyed so much leaving my own personality to be projected on it.. kind of like drawing on a blank canvas and liking what the end result was. And I'm sure the absinthe that I drank before hand didnt hurt either.
;D

Più che un Museo, è un'esposizione permanente titolata "La città K. Franz Kafka e Praga". Si trovano tanti manoscritti inediti del geniale scrittore del Castello, il Processo e la Metamorfosi. L'esposizione è divisa in dua parti: Spazio esistenziale e Topografia immaginaria. Si trova a Mala Strana.
