The museum is fantastic with tons of modern and contemporary works of arts. We visited the museum for a little bit more than three hours and we couldn't see the place completely. I recommend picking one floor (the third or the second) and paying the extra fee to see the Slav Epic of Alfons Mucha if you are in hurry.... More

The sign at the entrance infers that the gallery is dedicated to modern and contemporary art, and while 2 or 3 of the 5 floors contain such, there is also one floor devoted to other works by Picasso, Monet and other impressionists. If you feel like getting away from the hordes of tourists in the old town and spending a... More

We got lost several times getting there but it's so worth it! We got combo tickets but personally we should have gotten Slav Epic tickets only and spend more time in that room. It's so incredible and you just want to sit there and stare the wonderful works of Mucha. They say this show here might be temporary and aren't... More

This place is off the beaten track, but the Mucha exhibit I went to see there should not be missed!! Plus, one of the best side-benefits of this place's location is that I didn't have to battle the usual crowds!

Not sure in what other gallery,you would be so fortunate to have works by Van Gogh, Renoir; Cezanne, Picasso et al virtually to yourself. Well worth the short trip out of the centre by metro or by tram. This building also houses Mucha's Slav Epic canvasses, well worth the extra admission fee, (although be prepared to meet a relic of...

The building belies what's within. It just looks like a 70s office block from outside. But when you get in and realize how well it has been designed to maximize the use of light, you begin to appreciate that you may be in for a treat. And having been exposed to the traditional European art museums over the years, full... More

First off, wear comfortable shoes. Have a large breakfast. Go early in the day. This is the largest of the National Gallery sites and houses modern art. To say the least, the collection is vast, with particular emphasis on Czech and Slovak paintings and sculptures, and includes work by Mucha, Gutfreund, Kupka, Fila, Beneš and Kubišta. Of course, the show-stopper... More

We are not particularly interested in art and visit art museums infrequently. We had heard a lot about Mucha's Slav Epic on earlier visits to Prague, but it was difficult to reach. This time, we were able to take a tram right to the door. It is an amazing exhibition with 20 gigantic paintings that depict the history of the... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this gallery. If you are staying in the Jewish Quarter it is a relatively easy, though not scenic walk. There was a lot to see on each floor and what was wonderful was the space and lack of people. In a London Museum you would not be able to get near works by the great... More

The tram 17 goes over the river from Staromestska and in about 10 mins you stop right in front of the Modern Art Museum. I am an art history student and live in Prague but not usually a big fan of Modern Art but what drew me to this was the Slav Epics of Mucha....the 1st time they were all... More
