Even if you haven't read any of Franz Kafka's novels or stories, the Kafka museum will throw you into the world of a man you may not know about, and will hopefully leave you wanting to get your own copy of The Trial or The Metamorphosis (conveniently sold in several languages in the museum's gift shop) afterwards. The interactive exhibition takes you through several displays dedicated to the writer's works, and then several detailing the writer's life (and inevitably the role of Prague in it) chronologically. A number of eerie videos really set the Kafkaesque mood, so once you leave the museum you might just experience some of the tricks the city plays on the mind. Opening hours are daily 10.00 a.m. - 6 p.m., January - February 2006 daily from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

An excellent virtual recreation of the Kafka experience.
What a trip!
Visiting this museum has been a great experience to me. I was so sad discovering the tour was over.
Most of all, I've appreciated the sounds created in order to kick the visitors in the middle of a Kafka's novel.
One of my favourite museums EVER! Going through it is as trippy as one of his novels, and once you find out more about the man you just want to read everything he's written - and conveniently enough, the museum shop has copies of his books in English!
