My review echoes that of the others on here... We turned up with some pretty high expectations, it's an absolute waste of time. To start with, the lady behind the counter was overly rude that I didn't have that extra 10 (cost was110) as I only had two 100 notes. She proceeded to mutter and complain in Czech to the... More

When we visited Prague, the main building was closed due to renovations. We visited the temporary location of the museum. It contained some interesting information and was well put together. It is a good place to visit if its raining.

The National Museum is in a district with several museum buildings and close to several magnificent churches. The museum itself is an imposing structure that reminds me of a palace more than a museum. The annex, or possibly the new main building, is across the street and looks more like an office building. Crossing the street in certain spots nearby... More

A lot more should be done to upgrade this museum to the level of other museums from Europe such as Vienna or Paris. I have seen the Money Exhibition, which was more an economics lesson for dummies, with not enough specifics about the Czech republic, execept the Short history of the stock exchange.

So, you like Czech art, do you? Better hope so, because there's loads of it. The international part contains one very nice Klimt, a couple of interesting Kokoschkas, an outstanding Munch. Mucha's Slav Epic is one of the biggest mistakes in 20th-century painting. Unless you're a huge fan, don't bother.

Visited on 25 June 2014. Few stuff scattered from places around the world, noting worth seeing, there are so many more important things to see in Prague.

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
