Directions to the Prague Museum of Technology
The best way is by tram. We took the tram to the beautiful Strossmayer Square (Czech: Strossmayerovo náměstí) and walked from there (about 10 minutes). It is even closer from the tram stop “Letenské náměstí”.
You can also go to the subway station “Vltavská” (red line C) and then at the exit with all tram direction right to Strossmayer Square (only one station).
Buy local transport tickets: Some tourists have a problem buying local transport tickets in Prague on arrival. Firstly, it is not easy to use foreign language ticket machines, you need Czech change and there are often queues. It is a good idea to buy the tickets in advance on the internet. They will then be sent by post. On this website you can buy public transport tickets for Prague.
