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.

We found this place by accident, it is is in the Josefov quartier. You have two options. One is to visit for free the lower rooms of the convent which are completely empty so they will take you 10 minutes. The second option is to pay a small fee and go upstairs ans visit a great collection of medieval art.... More

Not too easy to find but well worth the visit if you're interested in the above. Display is enormous. Guards are a bit off putting as they look like female Soviet prison guards but think that they were just bored. It's in the north of the city in a back street under Aneszky klaster on most of the maps.

Where did the nuns go? I was hoping. Very cool collection. Even if you're not Christian. No annoying hangers-on though...

St. Agnes Convent is located in the Jewish Quarter. I visited the Convent with my friends, in our trip to Prague, and it was a deception... we didn´t appreciate that art so much. And the prior was always following us, we felt unconfortable, since the prior seemed unconfident with us... maybe he was afraid that we could stole something. We... More

The museum exhibits “sacred art in the middle ages”: this means that there are hundreds of pieces representing Saints, Apostles, Bishops, holy histories, the Holy Family and so on. They are in the form of statues, painted portraits, sculpted high-relief, icons, etc., but the subject is always the same. If you are a devout you will be elated; if you... More

It has all been said by others but this is a great exhibit. You can see medieval art in many museums but usually in sterile rooms and mostly behind glass. Here the convent is the perfect backdrop for work that is all the more beautiful for its setting. Well worth the entrance money and in a great location so you... More
