I didn't think I was going to make it to this museum, but we switched our last day around to see it. I am so glad I was able to visit. This was definitely one of my favourite museums worldwide. Basically it is a museum full of everyday objects--hundreds of years of everyday objects. There is glassware, ceramics, textiles, jewellery, furiniture, even posters and pamphlets. Prague is such an old and rich capital, so there is such a plethora of historically interesting objects to look at. This is the kind of museum you could spend two hours or two days in, depending on how deep you want to dig. Every style and era is represented in every section. Naturally, there was some of the most gorgeous art nouveau pieces I had ever seen. The posters and paper section had numerous drawers you could open to look at more items. Like others here have mentioned, I am surprised that this museum does not get as much attention. The gift shop was hands down the best in all of Prague. They have professionally done replicas of famous Czech porcelain and toys. I bought some replica toys from the 1930's done by hand in wood. The staff at the giftshop were very helpful and extremely proud of their museum--and rightfully so.
