Create an itinerary including Franz Kafka Muzeum
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.

  • Worthwhile to visit if you are a Kafka enthusiast but perhaps boring and expensive for someone who doesn't know much about Kafka. The museum includes Kafka's hand writings, earlier editions of his books, and a lot of photos and information about his life. This information also helps you locate other interesting destinations in your Prague trip, e.g. different houses where Kafka lived in, or his favourite bars, etc. It takes about one hour or more to visit the museum.
  • Was disappointed in this museum. I always try to accentuate the positive and maybe my expectations were to high. This was a very dark exhibit literally and some sections I couldn't read the information as it was white and were backlit about 25%of displays you can't read I will try to help you with some information to make it easier for you. 1. When you get to entry area you will a see Statue with 2 men peeing. (See pics)Look to left you will see museum shop. That is where you buy tickets for museum. Our cashier was not very friendly or helpful. 2. Upon exit of shop go directly across the courtyard to museum entrance. 3.The entrance has storage lockers for you and they will take your tickets. 4. Follow arrows to displays. There here is a section where arrows backtrack in first section. There is an area showing movie. To the left of this area is a WC in corner. Behind the movie you will see glas tables with arrow to follow. 5. Main focus of museum is his life and family in Prague.
