Museum of Communism

Located above a McDonald's, and sharing space with a casino, is the Czech Museum of Communism. How the might have fallen!

The museum is small. The descriptions are very informative, but there's not that impressive of a collection here. This pales in comparison to the House of Terror, or Memento Park, in Budapest. There were plenty of propaganda posters.

But overall I think the Museum is a little soft on communism. If you knew nothing else about communism other than what you learned in this museum, you would think the commies were bad because they beat on people. I prefer the message in Budapest: communism was pure evil.
