Skoda Auto Museum (Skoda Muzeum) and factory in the town of Mlada Boleslav, Central Bohemia, Czech Republic. About a one hour drive northeast of Prague.
The Czech Republic is home to Skoda Automobiles. Mlada Boleslav is the town where Skodas were first built. The museum is an interesting place to visit if you like Skoda cars, perhaps not so much if you don’t. Museum has a range of Skoda models on display including Skoda bicycles, nice bright lights, a movie theater, a cafe, a workshop display including a car in different stages of renovation, and a few other bits and pieces.
- The site is where Skoda originally established a factory.
- Half an hour to an hour should be enough time to visit the museum.
- The factory visit tour is likely to be more interesting but arrange it before arriving.
- Not clear if car parking is available or free – if you have a Skoda it might be ok to park in the factory car park.
- Not really worth a special trip from Prague just to see the museum unless you include the factory visit, or you’re in the area anyway to see other things.
- Museum closed on 26 November 2012 due to remodeling, re-opened on 27 November 2012.
- Opening hours normally 0900-1700, on 31 December 0900-1400, closed 24-26 December and 01 January.
- Admission fee in 2012 CZK 50, in 2013 CZK 70 for adults. Museum and factory tour CZK 200 for adults (in 2013). Discounts for children, families, students, senior citizens. Free entry for some groups.
