Visit all of the floors and be amazed by the diversity of art in this unusual museum. Czech modern art has been such a revelation to me this past visit -- some of the best is here at Kampa.

The giant bronze babies outside the building (a refurbished mill) were the most intriguing part of this museum. You can see them for free. It's telling there was hardly anyone in the museum during the height of the tourist season. My favorite part was a small exhibit of František Kupka drawings. The views of the river from the building were... More

Great museum or modern and contemporary art in a fantastic location. The installation of the work is unusual and therefore thrilling. I love the works surrounding the staircases. It might prove challenging for people with walking difficulties as the staircase is relatively steep (see other reviews) but the views that are offered through the metal contruction are very interesting. The... More

I stumbled upon this place and my attention was caught by the unique sculptures around the outside of the gallery. It's just as weird and wonderful on the inside. Lots of abstract and contemporary art and some cool artists on display. Cheap for students, worth a visit.

This museum has no structure. The art pieces are presented randomly. The building is odd too. Small halls, steep stairs. Elevator is for ppl with disability. At least this is noted on the elevator. The entrance is poorly marked, so it is not clear where the entrance is and where to buy the tickets. I am not impressed of contemporary... More

LOVED IT! This is a city of art and immensely amazing architecture, but this gallery after all that amazing beauty outside its walls is just breath taking. A must see for anyone who is in the city and loves art...why else visit Prague.

Very interesting building in a very special location. The views from the windows and roof are magnificent. The contents match. Excellent, well curated temporary exhibitions supplement the permanent collection. Calm, restorative atmosphere.

Often on my visits to Prague, I'd look across the river and wonder what that white square building could possibly hold. Well I took a chance and boy was I amazed. The Kampa, to me, is everything a modern art museum should be. Sometimes bright sometimes dark, sometimes wild, sometimes restrained, everything. It's amazing that some of these pieces have... More

Spent two plus sublime hours (off-season, so I had the place pretty much to myself). Gorgeous art even before you step a foot inside the museum. The modern art collection is very strong, as was the temporary installation. No issue with taking photographs or walking through the entire collection several times. Beautiful views of Prague get even better from the... More

You have to walk a distance before coming upon this old building next to the river. Inside you will find modern, thought provoking art.
