This modest museum is worth the visit. The appreciation and spirit shown for the allies during the war period is impactful. The curator is friendly and you can tell where his heart is. It won't take more than an hour, but for Americans, neat to...More

small museum but interesting, with good exhibitions, the museum is easy to reach from the town centre, on walking distance from the main square

During the Liberation Celebration, we visited the Patton Museum. So much history! Such an honor to have the Czech people, and especially Plzen, display war memorability.

Very interesting experience for anyone interested in WW2 and/or Pilsen history. There is a lot to see and admire in quite a small area.

Small, but packed full of exhibits. My dad was in Patton's army until shortly before the liberation of Pilsen. Not everyone dislikes the US as the curator of this museum and the monuments around town will tell you. Met a WW2 vet of the liberation...More

As other reviewers have noted, this is a small museum about the liberation of western Bohemia by the U.S. 3rd Army commanded by General Patton, but it is jam packed with fascinating information and artifacts. The admission charge is under $3 and is well worth...More
