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.

The French collection alone is worth the trip, the Czech art is first class and the international floor is great too! If you like the Impressionists and on, make sure you go to the Veletrzni palac, it was build in the 1920s as an Industry exhibition palace, re-purposed to show art after Industry left town. Interesting building on its own.

This is a nice museum but not on the top list of things to see and do in Prague. You should visit the museum once you visited Paraguay's major attractions. The major attraction is the "slav Epic" by Mucha and it is very impressive.

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...
