People who fail to include this part of the National Gallery in their visit will fail to appreciate the importance of Prague as an artistic centre in the fourteenth and fifteenth century. According to the curators, many of the works shown here belong to the so-called International Style, and within that are midpoint between Italy and northwestern Europe because they... More

If religious art is what you're looking for, this is the place. The collection is extensive and outstanding. But that's about it: the chapels are completely barren and there's no sense of what the convent must have looked like in its heyday. So go for the art but if you're looking for more you'll be disappointed.

When we went to Beautiful Prague we took the time to search out and locate this splendid Convent which contained a TREASURE TROVE of Medieval art and statuary. The artwork within its walls was exceptional and beautiful. I also believe that onsite is buried the sister of King Wenceslas (in the Christmas Carol "Good King Wenceslas" a reference is made...

A lovely respite from all the tourists. A beautiful building, a beautiful story behind it and a beautiful life as an art gallery in front of it

In a splendidly restored convent. The holdings are impressive, and the space itself often captivating. Well worth the visit.

Prague can be a little overwhelming due to the sheer number of tourists. If you would like to visit a real gem with lots of interesting artwork and very few tourists them St Agnes is the place to go. It is largely religious artworks including a number of winged alters, but also includes statues and iconography. Get yourself a good... More

Wonderful display of art dating from 1200-1600 located at this convent. Located north of the Jewish Ghetto, this exhibit is worth a visit.

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
