We arrived in Prague in the late afternoon and as we walked to Wenceslas Square we noticed that there was a classical music concert in the museum that evening. While we didn't see the exhibits we joined about 200 Czechs and tourists to listen Vivaldi, Puccini and Mozart played by a chamber orchestra of 4 talented musicians. We sat on... More

Even though it is closed for 5 years for construction, every once in awhile the local symphony will play a small show in the lobby. The sound is amazing and it's a really cool atmosphere. We loved it

On a recent trip to Prague we became first acquainted with the work od Alfons Mucha. We admired his drawings and posters exhibited at the Mucha Museum. It is here we saw the moving painting of the Woman in the Wilderness. It was the depiction of total acceptance of fate. A woman huddled in a vast snow scape her face... More

We visited this museum when we were in Prague in December. The building itself was enormous. Several floors of exhibits that display innumerous items of historical interest native to Prague.

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.

Since the original location is supposedly under renovation (rumors fly about this: our guidebook says it will re-open in 2015, but we saw no evidence of any work going on inside at all), we went to the "temporary location", just across the street. The exterior is very modernistic, but you'd better watch your step, as we tripped on unfinished parts... More

AND HAS BEEN SINCE 2011??? EXPECTED TO OPEN 2017? We were really looking forward to this but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. On a plus side reading some of the other reviews of the museum cheered me up :) I don't feel like I've missed so much now <takes a bow> many thanks

Yes they said to us there was only 1 exposition; WW1. Because I find WW1 very interesting that didn't bother me. What bothered me was that after (I think) 3 rooms there was nothing. First I couldn't believe so I did search for the other rooms. But it was true. There was a very very minimal exposition. And yes the... More

How lucky were we!! The Museum was closed when my wife and I visited Prague - but is was open one evening for a Chamber Music String Quartet concert. Now I'm not into Museums that much and Chamber Music was not high on my cultural agenda but this combination was absolutely stunning!! The quartet set up on a tiny landing... More

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
