KGB Museum, Prague

3.7
Discover Communist-era Prague at KGB Museum, located just down the street from the city's famed medieval castle. Established by a group of enthusiastic collectors of KGB memorabilia, this private museum contains a large collection of spy cameras and interrogation devices, as well as a series of rare photographs taken in 1968 by a KGB officer on assignment in Prague. The museum also displays some of the more bizarre artifacts from the Communist period, including Lenin's death mask, Trotsky's murder weapon, and a radio taken from the cabinet of Lavrentiy Beria, the chief of the Soviet secret police apparatus during World War II. Put KGB Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague travel route planner.
