Amazing products and tech through the ages to see. The history of Czech design and manufacture is impressive. Good value for money you get many floors for one ticket. Only down side the staff were not so welcoming and consistently followed us around without a smile
One of the places that you definitely should not miss if you're interested in anything related to technology. The vehicles they have are just awesome, but the same is true for the photography, printing, astronomy, timekeeping, metallurgy and mining exhibitions... A very unique museum with superb presentation. There are some really special, you-can't-see-this-anywhere-else items. Everything is explained well in English and you can buy English guidebooks and memorables as well. 4 hours is the bare minimum to spend here, it's worth more!
