Located in Old Town on Melantrichova Street is Prague’s Wax Museum, the first of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe. Now, I don’t know about you, but I generally tend to stay away from this type of museum. I don’t know why, but maybe it is the general creepiness factor. The point is, is that there are many other worthwhile things you can spend 120kc on in Prague, for example, the Museum of Czech Cubism located down the road, which is in fact cheaper. But, if you wish to see wax figures of famous people, then be my guest. Wander through the museum where a smiling Kafka (strange) is standing in close proximity to Gottwald (you will wonder if it is the wax version or the corpse from Vítkov Hill) and wonder about humanity. There is however something interesting about the evil kind from history such as Stalin in the same room with Czech musician Karel Gott. I would only recommend visiting this museum if you have extra time in Prague and you have seen everything (impossible!) and you feel like wasting some cash, or you have a strange sense of humor and this is your cup of tea. The owners of Prague Wax Museum also have locations in Cesky Krumlov and Karlstejn.
