Franz Kafka was one of the best known Czech writers of the 20th century. He is not only famous in his home country and city of birth, Prague, but internationally as well.
The museum is not as large as many other museums in the city, however for those who are not familiar with his work, this museum will give some insight into his life and writing.
It is located along the western side of the Vltava River and contains exhibits belonging to and about Franz Kafka. Items on display include manuscripts, photographs, letters, diaries and drawings. The exhibition includes first editions of all his books and copies, in several different languages, can be bought at the bookstore within the complex.
There are two distinct areas within the exhibition. The first part is called 'Existential Space', and explains the influence Prague has had on his life and literary works. The second part includes the use of modern technology such as audiovisual and 3D effects and is given the title 'Topography of Prague'. This part takes the visitor on a journey through his works and projects images from his books in several displays.
Even if you're not particularly interested in Franz Kafka himself, the museum can be worth a visit purely for the historical overview it gives of the city and one of its most famous previous residents.
