We were surprised at the amount of paintings featured in the gallery and could have spent much more time if we didn't have to head off to the concert at Rudolfinum. Paintings from the famous artists are of course a highlight, but the works of local Czech artists were great too! The museum is right opposite tram stop so recommend... More

As soon as we walked in we knew this was going to be worthwhile, as greeting us, was Rodin's Balzac. Unfortunately Mucha's Slave Epic was unavailable to be viewed so a little disappointment there. The art here is from the 1850's and mostly 20th century. The top floor is dedicated to Czec artists many of whom I was unfamiliar with,... More

The Veletrzni was a surprise. We came to Prague from Amsterdam - waiting in lines literally for more than an hour only to see art in a crowded noisy atmosphere. In the Veletrzni we had whole gallery spaces to ourselves. The former trade fair palace is huge, light, and a great space for contemporary art. Mucha's Slave Epic was no... More

This museum defenitely has been the most surprising part of my Prague-visit. The architecture, especially the interior, is superb. A beautiful design from 1928, spacious and light, beautifully restored, a real pleasure to wander around and enjoy. The collection on display is big and comprises an intersting time span: from late 19th century to contemporary art and offered an interesting... More

Housing the modern art collection of the national gallery, it has an undistinguished modernist feel from the outside, but inside .... filled with light from a huge atrium. While in the permanent collections a lot of focus is on a wide ranging and really interesting collection of Czech art and design (where else would you find multiple walls full of... More

The permanent collection was really stunning... we loved the paintings, didn´t like the staff though - they look like relicts from the communist times. We spent there almost 15 minuts trying to buy our ticket.

I would rate this at 3.5 but I can't do that. There are some really nice pieces in here, the space is well suited to viewing sculpture and the larger works as it is light and bright and spacious. It has a really good collection of Czech art and it was interesting to see how there were Czech painters and... More

A National Treasure!! A well organized museum full of outstanding art and sculptures. Plan to spend 2-3 hours to take in all of the exhibits. The cafe on the main floor is O.K.
