Nice little museum gives you a nice taste of a pretty prolific artist. I didn't realize his artwork was such a national treasure to the Czech republic. Interesting to see the subdued colors of the pieces in person. Too bad the Slav Epic is offsite.

The Mucha Museum contains posters, paintings and other works by Alphonse Mucha. The museum is rather small (like other museums dedicated to a single artist). The museum does an excellent job describing the flow of Mucha's art and life. The documentary is excellent on his life. Having known nothing of the artist (other than recognizing his Art Nouveau style) it... More

I was expecting the Mucha Museum to have a lot more art, but what it does have does a great job at representing Mucha's life, theories and contributions to the genre. The posters from the war time were interesting, filled with emotion and not something we'd come across before. There is a good movie of Mucha's life, which you should... More

Beside every piece of the exhibition there is a really interesting and informative explanation. The museum has a very nice gift shop :)

I can't speak highly enough of this Museum Our second visit after a gap of several years and an inspiration all over again. I already knew Mucha's work but not so much about the man himself. Aside from being a brilliant artist, he was obviously a great man of his time. The video at the end of the exhibit tells... More

The Art Nouveau movement was born with Alphonse Mucha, and he was born in Prague.. the museum dedicated to his work is a gem. It's small, but has a number of his works and describes the processes used to make them. It gives an overview of the beginning of the Art Nouveau movement. And not least- the gift shop is... More

We were not really familiar with Mucha before our visit but we really fell for the artist and his art both at the museum and at the Municipal Building. Very informative video on his career as well.

I was really looking forward to the visit to the museum as I adore the work of Mucha. The museum was very small but I had been expecting that after reading Trip Advisor comments. It had an array of beautiful lithograph prints and a few paintings together with some sketches. I found the DVD interesting. The museum shop was quite... More

I've been a fan of Mucha's gorgeous women since I first saw them, and was happy to have the opportunity to visit this museum. Although this museum is small, it is very fine and contains an extensive collection of his beautiful posters, as well as a few paintings. I was unfamiliar with his paintings but quite enjoyed them. Take a... More
