It's clear that the convent used to be really beautiful but it has deteriorated since its heyday. Still, for its age and style, the building alone is worth seeing and moreover, it provides a great setting for the art. As for the art, there's plenty to see, much of it quite good. Medieval Bohemian paintings, which make up about half... More

You like great art? This museum doesn't have one artist you've heard of - most of the art is un-attributed by name - but is full of tremendously moving, masterful works; particularly wood carvings, but even paintings you won't believe.

This was a nice discovery, but unfortunately it was our last day in Prague and we hadn't much time for a detailed visit. The exhibits are very interesting, there are many wooden statues and paintings of the Lady and the Christ holding a bird - this is special for the Bohemian region, I've never seen something like this. The whole... More

This is a very quiet pump and very close to the Jewish quarter. They have on display a show of medieval culture art and other kinds of church treasures that were simply incredible to behold.

WOW! What an amazing hidden gem in this beautiful city. I’m sooooooooo appreciative to our hotel’s concierge for suggesting it when I asked for something off the beaten path. It’s a beautifully rebuilt 13th century convent that is so tranquil and inspiring in its own right, but then you see the exhibit of medieval sculptures and paintings and we were... More

There is not much to see in the form of the convent itself, but there is a museum full of religious medieval art. I would suggest that you should only stop here if you really like religious art because there is a lot of it at this museum. If that is not your thing, then I would say to skip... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Prague. Once a year the museums stay open until one oclock in the morning and they are all free to enter. Additionally special buses are laid on throughout - I am not sure whether these are also free. However we walked from our hotel in Old Town Square which took... More

It took us a half hour to find the well-hidden entrance to this museum (down a couple of side streets and alleys), but when we finally got there is was worth it. It's only a 5-10 minute walk from the Old Town Square. The building is a 13th Century convent, which you can tour). The medieval collection is extensive and... More

We visited the convent on our last day in Prague, and the walk from our hotel near Karluv Most was well worth it. There was not admission fee the day we went, although when they do charge, it's not much. There were not many people there when we went; it could have been the rain, or it could be its... More

There are 2 things to do here: tour the convent and visit the Museum of Medieval Art. We chose to do both and thoroughly enjoyed the museum. It is filled with Madonnas from all over Europe. A very worthwhile visit.
