Museum of Senses, Prague

This small museum, found in Prague old town, has been open for six months. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was a great way to pass an hour and a half.

The lady at the reception was very friendly and pointed us towards the free lockers where we could leave our bags before we went into the museum via a mirror maze!

If visiting I would recommend taking a camera as the exhibits are mostly illusion based. There are pictures to show you where to take photos from to get the best shots.

There are big interactive exhibits where you can shrink or grow, walk on the ceiling or sit on a bench with no legs. You can lie on a bed of nails, turn your head into a kaleidoscope and stumble through a spinning tunnel. From tricks with mirrors to clever camera angles we found fun through every door!

As we were leaving the kids visited the toilets and came out bemused that they had just washed their hands in toilets rather than sinks!

The museum itself isn’t all that big but it is unusual and interactive. Whilst the children loved it, it is also suitable for adults visitors. We really enjoyed our visit and would recommend having a look if you are ever in Prague!

Visiting the museum of senses with an autistic child?

Whilst small, the museum has lots of doors and small rooms so stay close to your children.

All exhibits are interactive and you are able to touch everything.

There are lots of mirrors and lights so it’s great sensory fun.

Instructions are in all languages.

I would say it would depend on levels of understanding and concentration span as to how long you would potentially be able to spend at the museum but most the exhibitions anyone can enjoy in some capacity.

The museum of senses, Prague is located in Prague old town at Jindřišská 939/20. 110 00 Praha 1-Nové Město.
