PRAGUE • Museum of Communism • 6 October 2006 - 31 December 2016
Housed in the Palace Savarin just off Wenceslas Square and adjacent to Mc-Donald's, the Museum of Communism is the work of American businessman Glenn Spicker who owns bagel shops and bars in Prague. The Museum's three sections, the Dream, the Reality and the Nightmare include secret police surveillance equipment and an interrogation cell, propaganda material, posters and a class-room with communist school books, statues of Lenin and Stalin, a number of sub-standard goods and consumer products that one associates with communism in Eastern and Central Europe and a display devoted to the 1989 Velvet Revolution.
