If you are after an experience that is unique, interesting and memorable I would highly recommend visiting the KGB Museum. A lot of the reviews here are people taking things way too seriously and need to understand that there may be differences of opinion but for the sake of everyone, please just let everyone experience and enjoy the tour.
Overall, if you go in with an open mind and understand that this is not a traditional every-day type of museum and are after a unique experience, you should definitely visit the museum. He has some genuinely interesting material, artefacts, and memorabilia and coupled with his memorable explanations, you will surely have an unforgettable experience that you will never forget. Do not visit Prague without checking out this museum!

Highly entertaining and mostly educational. A genuinely interesting collection of memorabilia dramatically annotated by the host. How else would you ever know the best way to kill someone with cold war era spy weaponry? A great way to spend an alternative hour in this a-little-too-normal city.

A really great museum. It's a private collection of the owner who delivers very passionate and dramatic explanations on the weapons and items used by the KGB. Please note, this is more of a tour than a walk through museum, and you can only visit at set times. My tour was at 1:20PM and lasted about an hour. Tours are only in English or Russian. People who aren't interested in this will still find it highly entertaining.

The guy is great. The collection is great. He's charismatic, informative, and hilarious. It's pretty ad hoc bit that's to it's credit- he let's new groups join in with a brief catch-up and keeps going describing the history, actions, and equipment of the KGB and Soviet espionage.
Really fun, short little tour. Not a place for right wingers given the Soviet theme and the fact that the Nazis were the primary enemy of the KGB.

What a place. A small, privately owned museum. Only about the size of a 2 bedroom apartment but filled with WWII and cold war memorabilia up to the roof. The owner can only be described as offensively Russian. Wearing his Joseph Stalin T-Shirt to an endless-loop of the Russian National Anthem and videos of the 2015 victory parade. First thing he told me was that there is a lot of "Anti-Russian propaganda" in my country, to which I replied, that my country is too far away from Russia to care much. But anyway. The tour is done enthusiastically, in heavy-accented English, without any clear structure but excellent showmanship. It is the best weird collection of spy gadgets I've ever seen. Real-life James Bond stuff. If you can ignore that fact that his presentation is highly politicized to the point of seeming almost comical, you will have a great time. Props to you, random Russian owner who probably would approve of a restauration of the Soviet Union.
