An interesting exhibition of memorabilia from a grim 41-year period that still has echoes today.
Documenting a key time in the country's recent past.
To learn about four 20th-century decades that shaped today's Czech Republic - the Cold War period when Communist rule was imposed in 1948 till it was toppled by the Velvet Revolution in 1989 - this suite of rooms off Wenceslas Square at No. 10 Na Příkopě is a revelation. Through photos, documents, mock-ups and multimedia displays curated by historians, the Museum of Communism does a good job presenting not just political and historic events but also some sense of what everyday life was like under this system.
