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.

  • First of, the museum is really well structured and also quite modern, with the dark rooms, short movies and the light effects, but it was a lot to read.

  • Such an informative and encompassing museum of the profound author’s life and works. The displays were a variety of mediums, ranging from plaques to videos and sculptures to projections on canvas...

  • Well organized with his background and history on the top floor and details on his works on the ground floor. The museum was hot as hell when I visited. Some of the lamps don’t work so you can’t read some plaques in the dark hallways. Also, some of the notations are written in white on a transparent label above a display case, no contrast so some you can’t read. The lady at the entrance is disinterested and unfriendly, just like some subjects in Kafka’s novels.
  • A lot to read though
