The art museum was excellent with plenty of Mucha's graphics and paintings that include romantic view of beautiful "maiden" women. The paintings are impressive and very tall. It's worth a few visits for the Art Nouveau lovers and Slavic folk themes.

The Mucha Museum is a wonderfully interesting museum of one of Prague's most memorable artists. the museum offers examples of much of his work and features a very interesting 30 minute film of his life. Everyone that loves art will appreciate this museum.

Probably best remembered by most people for his posters of Sarah Bernhardt, this small museum charts the career of Alfonse Mucha in his decorative arts, oil paintings and photography. There are fine examples of most of his work, including much which documents his passion for the Slavic peoples and his efforts towards establishing an independent Czech homeland, realised in 1918...

I enjoyed my visit to the Mucha museum. It is small and only takes an hour or so to go through. There is an informative video of Mucha's life and career, but unfortunately it plays on a very small TV, which is difficult to hear if others are talking in the museum.

Although not many people recognise the "Mucha" name, many must have seen his influential works. The artist known for his posters was actually not a bad artist in other genres, either. You'll see a wicked huge oil in this exhibitions alongside what made him famous. Very interesting in seeing his sketchbooks as well. There is also a rather comprehensive video... More

What a beautiful little museum. Definitely stop in to get a taste of some of the cultural legacy of the Czech Republic - the great and truly unique artist Alphonse Mucha, a master of the art nouveau style. The exhibits, which are in English as well as other languages, are just breathtaking. Even if you've never heard of Mucha before,... More

While in Prague recently, a friend steered me to the Mucha Museum; it was a real treat. The museum has an excellent collection of the work of Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha. It also has a very informative film about him, his life and his Czech patriotism. Admission is 240 czk (about $10). For those with an interest in Art... More

Mucha's work is beyond amazing, so I don't think this museum actually appropriately pays tribute to that. It's quiet expensive to get in and gift shop is almost as large as the exhibition. It's worth a visit if you are a fan however.

Of course I was familiar with the some of the artwork of Alphonse Mucha, but I was unaware of his life, the fact that he was a supporter of Czech nationalism and a mentor to the art community. For example, did you know that he designed the money for the new Czech Republic after World War I? The museum itself... More

A short walk from our hotel took us to this small museum dedicated to Alfons Mucha. It is compact and rather unadorned, but a satisfying way to spend 60 to 90 minutes. Mucha's work will be familiar to aficionados of Art Nouveau. A short video presentation on the artist's life enhances the experience. Visitors please note: Those in search of... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
