Found in the tangle of streets between Charles Bridge and Wenceslas Square in Prague’s spectacular Staré Město (Old Town), the Apple Museum sits neatly inside the Pop Art Gallery in a revamped 12th-century townhouse. The museum opened in December 2015 and is billed as the ‘largest private collection of Apple products in the world’. The displays in this homage to all things Apple include more than 470 original Apple products, and also highlight the backstory of the legendary founders of the company, Steve Jobs, who died in 2011, and his visionary sidekick, Steve Wozniak.
From the curiously toy-like Apple Mac from 1984 through the multi-colored iPods of the early 21st century to the MacBooks introduced 2012, the development of one of the world’s biggest brands is laid out in sleek displays guaranteed to appeal to kids and adults alike. Exhibits from Steve Jobs’ life include his college yearbooks, sneakers and his distinctive black roll neck jerseys; and after walking in his footsteps through the museum, there’s also a raw vegan restaurant where his favorite dishes are on offer.
Open daily 10am–10pm. Admission for adults is 245 CZK; students are 190 CZK; children are 110 CZK; family tickets are 595 CZK. All profits go to charity. The museum is about a five-minute walk from the Stare Mesto in a pedestrianized area.
