Went to the Veletržní Palác for 2 reasons: (1) to see Czech art that wasn't art nouveau and (2) it was a very hot day and the museum was sure to be air conditioned. It was perfect on both points, and even had a nice little cafe. Whilst I didn't love every piece in the museum (who does?) there were... More

First and foremost, this place is enormous - we covered the four floors that were open, only stopping to admire pictures and pieces that immediately caught our eye, and it still took us more than three hours. (Not that I'm complaining!) There really is something for everyone in the collections. Things to bear in mind, apart from the time you... More

There are various National Galleries in Prague, but the Veletrzni Palac is the one housing various Picasso paintings which are the main selling point here. The gallery is slightly off the beaten track from all the other tourist attractions and is not very well advertised. However if you are into art, this is a must visit place. They also have... More

Great museum with spectacular paintings by Czech artists and French alike. It's free for students and the only problem is it will take you 2 days to see all 4 floors. Definitely worth it!

Definitely worth a visit if you have a few free hours when visiting Prague. Unfortunately, the Slav Epic exibit is closed until August 1st, 2015.

Don't be put off by its somewhat "out of town" location or its industrial looking facade. The permanent exhibits on three floors of Veletržní palác acquaint visitors with the development of Czech and foreign fine art of 20th and 21st century art. We "discovered" the works of several artists there and intend to find out more about them. The museum... More

From the outside this looks like a Soviet government building but inside it is a wonderful space for exhibiting great art. Some of the Czech artists of the early 20th century are rightfully unknown, but the museum also exhibits some great works of Picasso and others. The wonderful Oskar Kockoshka temporary exhibition has been the bets we've seen this year.

Nice place to take pictures. Nice gardens around and area is well maintained. You can go with group or go on your own. There are dings showing you where to go. Easy get around, nice walk.

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
