Discover Czech impressionism

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

This Gallery is a twenty minute walk from the centre of Prague but is well worth going.Also the walk is interesting and I discovered a wonderful beer garden on the hill overlooking Prague. I visited on the 25 June and was there for several hours - they have a very extensive collection of both Czech and European art. The labeling... More

Lots to see in this huge gallery. We visited mainly one floor in an hour to see Picassos. Nice way to spend a hot afternoon. There's lots of trams and park. It felt like they displayed everything they owned but half of it should be in storage. Staff quite unfriendly.

This modern art gallery has some mainy French and Central European art and a good selection of Czech art with a bit of design thrown in, including (currently) an exhibition of the 2015 art graduates. Unfortunately the Slav Epic is closed until further notice because of issues with the building. It's quite a change from the big galleries in Western... More

This is a great modern art museum, filled by predominantly Czech artists, with some other masters thrown in. The gallery is a joy to visit with discoveries of new artists with wide ranging styles. It even has exhibits of architectural drawings and models, a vintage Skoda car, and a Czech designed motorbike and sidecar. If you love art, it will... More

So much to see in this museum. Away from all the tourists, but an easy tram ride from the center of Prague. Not enough time to see all they had to offer.

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
