I was just there a few weeks ago...They've got video footage running on a continuous loop of riots in nearby Wenceslas Square shot in 1989. Scary Soviet-looking cops were beating down protesters who risked their lives just to express dissent. Lots can happen in 16 years I guess.

Otherwise, the museum was incredibly lame. It's got a nice sampling of artifacts from the communist era in Prague, but none of them are labelled. It's just someone's private collection of random communist-looking stuff kept under glass.
