The Veletrzni Palace is a tremendous collection of 19th, 20th and 21st century European and specifically Czech art. The Palace itself is a modern monstrosity from the outside, but the scale of the building with its huge atrium, gives the inside space and light, something that you don't get in many other galleries. The gallery is poorly visited and feels... More

The Veletrzni Palac is a very modern building that you would never know was actually an art museum. It is likely the only public space large enough to exhibit the massive canvases of Mucha's Slav Epic, which is a must see (although dark, very dark). A number of trams will drop you off right at the door in the Holesovice... More

Excellent museum displaying Czech art from the 19th and the 20th century located in a landmark modernist building. A must for any art buff!

This is a great place, once a municipal building each floor is spacious and circular, so you cannot get lost not matter how jet lagged you are. You will learn to appreciate the Czech fascination with cubism on many levels, but lots of other great art too. Good restaurant.

This is a building which was built in the 1920s, and architecturally is way ahead of it's time. Like so much of Prague, the building is most interesting, as are it's contents. This museum houses a wonderful collection of Czech art, as well as a permanent exhibit of French art. I recently saw an exhibition of Alfons Mucha's "The Slav... More

We just went to see the Mucha Slav Epic canvases. This is a truly marvelous exhibit and includes a well constructed AV presentation. There is much more to see as the other reviews tell you. Tram 17 takes you right to the door-what could be easier?

Although the name, Veletrzni Palace, would have you expect some intriguing castle-like architecture, the (huge) building sitting in a district far from the center of Prague, is more a cousin of Soviet designs in the 60's and 70's... But, once inside, with enough art (Gauguin, Van Gogh, Renoir, Vlaminck, Picasso, Rodin, Klimt, Manet, Cézanne, Monet, Schiele, etc. the Veletrzni Palace... More

We spent an hour and a half here and felt we had sprinted through the lovely paintings and sculptures. I knew nothing about Czech art but suspected that this wealthy town must have had something good to look at, and a local guide told us about the museum and how to get their, which is very easy: take Tram 17...
