No free entrance on the first Monday of any Month xD is already quite frustrating, but ok. The main building was on reconstruction, so we were in another one. There was a Money exhibition - that was quite interesting but the rest was not too much. There are only two floors and the second floor has some comics in Chezc... More

1This was a short distance from my hotel so I thoughtd I'd visit one day when it was raining. The main museum is closed for 'renovation' and it looks like the whole building is crumbling. I tried the new building across the road but that was closed as well. I ended up standing on the museum steps watching the riot... More

First we were disappointed to see that the old building was being reconstructed inside, and that there was a new building for us to visit. Going in the new building, there was almost no visitors in the reception. We had been told and seen in the Internet that every first Monday of every month it is free, so with thought... More

Although the museum is closed for renovation, it does host short 1 hour concerts. My wife and I bought tickets for a recital of works by Vivaldi, Smetana, Dvorak and other well known composers. We were directed to 'reserved' seats in the front row even though our 'ticket' was basically a note from our hotel concierge. The string ensemble were... More

On our visit on the 9/10/13 we new the old museum was closed but found the new museum was closed too while they put in a new exhibition. Disappointing and left us such with what to do that didn't mean a 1km hike to a different museum. Check in advance with your hotel or online to see what's open.

My husband and I visited the smaller museum in the former communist headquarter building while the main museum was being renovated. We were able to see everything in a little less than two hours, and we read almost every sign. It was interesting and worth stopping in, though my husband would have preferred we visit the military museum instead, further... More

As many people have pointed out, the main building is closed for renovation. However, there is an adjacent building that is open. They presented us with a brochure with a cover saying "National Museum Is Not Just One Building" and that shows several other sites including the Czech Museum of Music, The Ethnographical Museum, and others. We asked if one... More

When for July 2013, it showed 2 exhibitions for a total price of 200czk (per... More

With the main older museum closed for upgrading the current smaller building next door has a small interesting exhibit on Monarchy , primarily life from mid 1800s to WW1. Photos are allowed and the upstairs exhibit on lives of children during these times was very well done and a fresh look at an aspect of history not often covered in... More
