Slav Epic by Alfons Mucha is located here. The paintings are truly impressive. We spent about one hour seeing just this collection. You can buy an inexpensive guide in English as you enter that tells about each painting. The information included is extensive. The museum also houses works by many Czech artists and a nice selection by artists from Delacroix... More

Each time we visit Prague, we make sure we go to this amazing museum. It has perhaps the largest collection of French Impressionist Paintings and Picasso's art of any museum outside Paris. And it's usually empty!!!! You can visit it easily taking the #17 tram from Old Town (either Starotetska or Pariziska) and it's just a short ride away along... More

Museum on the left bank of Vltava , takes about 30 minutes to walk from Charles Bridge and only 8 minutes by tram ( number 17 ). Huge silver colored, modern, UGLY building, easy to recognize. There are several different types of tickets, depending how many exhibitions you want to see. We had combination ticket2: which allowed us to see... More

I'm not sure what to think of the place. Architecturally, it's an appalling building, and I'm not sure what the architect was thinking when he designed it. It's brutalist by every measure of the word. However, it also houses the Mucha's Slavic Epic, which makes the building an absolute must visit for any lover of the arts. Easily accessible via...

This place night be quite difficult to find but it is worth the effort, Probably because of its location and the fact that it is also listed as The Trade Fair Palace it was fairly quiet on the Wednesday I visited, Along with a lot of very well known artists I was very impressed with the czech artists as well....

Went and saw the amazing Slav Epic at the Veletrzni and took an extra couple hours to see some of the permanent exhibitions. Five floors of art await, so if you're time is limited, go straight to the third floor French exhibition where you'll find the masters including Monet, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, Gaugin, Van Gogh and more. The Czech exhibits... More

Wonderfull exhibition. If you want to see everything, forget it, it will take you then like 7 hours or something (depends how fast you are). I would recommend the cubism part, and the slav epic!

Ok palace it is not - cracking modernist monstrosity it is. "Good selection of impressionists". That's what I read about it - ok one Van Gough, one Monet, 3 Gauguin ( including an interesting wood cut) lots of Rodin busts, 2 Sisleys some other nice things but that was it. Horribly presented and incredibly empty be prepared to have your... More

I really enjoyed this gallery -there was a very interesting exhibition going on by the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. The building was interesting, and the collection of František Kupka was awesome.
