We got a combined ticket to see Mucha' s huge paintings and 19th and 20th centuries paintings sculptures which include works from Rodin, Picasso, Van Gogh, Renoir....and Czech artists. Fantastic! For Mucha you should go the Mucha's museum first to get background info. There is a convenient tram stop just outside the gallery as it is a bit out of... More

This is worth making the effort to get to, and the trip also gives a chance to see another, less visited area of Prague. The gallery is very big and a comprehensive review of Czech art over several floors. We were blown away by 'The Slav Epic' exhibition (temporary, so check dates). These 20 huge canvasses by Alfons Mucha chart... More

Housed in a former trade fair building across the river from the old town, this is a fine art museum with five floors of elegantly displayed paintings, sculptures, furniture, and handcrafted objects from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. We began with the upper floors devoted to Czech artists and thoroughly enjoyed the wealth of talent, artists whose names were... More

Unusual design of building. Art excellently displayed over the several floors. Current special exhibition amazing. Gallery away from main town - only 3-4 stops from the Centre - so not crowded, but well worth a visit. Could spend hours there. Czech artists alongside Rodin, Impressionists, Schiele, Klimpt etc. A must see on a visit to Prague.

This beautiful museum gave us an introduction to Czech artists we had never heard of, like Kupka and Capek, as well as a chance to see some paintings by artists we did know, such as the Impressionists, Shiele, Klimt and Kokoshka. Well worth the visit - and we returned specially to see the Slav Epic by Mucha.

This place left me speechless. Amazing. Perfect for hot day. Not overcrowded. Great collection. Big master works are to be fond here.

This museum has a small collection of big time works. There are works by Klimt, Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Rodin, Gaugin, Miro and Renoir. The catalogue of Czech artists is impressive. It costs 200Kr each for entry. Trams stop right out the front. There is a bookstore but it is not a gift shop.

We loved discovering many Czech painters from the 20th C whose work gives a twist to the better known French impressionists and post-impressionists.

This museum is outside of the area where most of the tourist attractions are located. We had to take the metro and a tram to get there. By the name I thought that it would be in a Baroque building, but it is in a modern building, that doesn't look that special outside. However inside the gallery, it is well... More
