This relatively small museum really does Mucha justice. The displays are well presented and the film at the ned of the gallery well worth lingering to watch.

We found this an unanticipated delight. He was a talented man and we know so little about him. The art is interesting and the film informative. We'd visited the Slav Epic the day prior to visiting the museum and enjoyed learning more about how he created these massive and amazing works of art. If you are strolling along Wenceslas Square,...

I was a bit disappointed. There are only 3 rooms with original art. Good English descriptions. The film about his life is quite interesting. Found that Mucha stayed and worked at Chateau Zibroh - where we were staying the following night. The gift shop has a nice selection of items, but we didn't buy anything.

Really nice, small museum devoted to an artist whose poster works will be familiar to many but about whom I knew little. Worth an hour or so on a wet day.

If you start with the video in the back of the museum you understand the progression of Mucha's work- nice examples of his early work and the posters in various stages. This would be good to see before you see the Slav Epic.

I loved this museum. I am absolutely enamoured with Mucha's work and this museum had a great collection. They provided interesting tidbits of information, the works on display were beautiful and the 30 min or so movie about his life was quite interesting as well. A must if you like art nouveau and/or Mucha.

The exhibition is very small and does not worth 250 krons. The shop is also very expensive. You can buy the same things much cheaper in the nearby book store.

Many years ago I had read "Mucha" by Jiri Mucha, Marina Henderson, and Aaron Scharf published in 1971. Must admit to having prints of his works hanging in our house. After a bus tour around the city we were dropped off in close proximity to the museum and took advantage to visit it. With no small degree of poignancy we... More

I knew of some of Muchas work already, but was not prepared for the sheer variation that was represented at this lovely small museum/gallery. The details of it all, such very beatiful work and when you see what he produced when he was only 8, you see why he became an artist. All his different styles and periods were represented... More

This intimate little museum is well worth a visit. It is an excellent collection of Mucha's work, and includes an interesting film on his life. It was wonderful to see his works up close.
