Visited with my partner and was incredibly disappointed.
We paid 264Kč (10€) for two very small exhibitions that took us about 10-15 minutes to completely go through.
Confused we asked if that was all and sadly it was. Most of the building was not open for visits, the Gulliver couldn't be visited or looked at closely either. Most of what we were able to exhibit was blank walls.
Definitely don't visit during times where no temporary exhibitions are on.
One star because the staff was very friendly.

It's May. Prague is bursting with visitors. We love to see modern art in every city we visit. And yet DOX is mostly closed? Why would they reduce their exhibitions by more than half just when the patrons are ready to visit? We walked a very long way from the old town and there was practically nothing on view. Very disappointing and not recommended.

This DOC Center of Contemporary Art is located out of the turistic city of Prague but no problem with the tram 14 to the end. It`s a very modern space with around area in renovation, or manicure-gentrification. I went to the DOX looking for a controversial - other... - of David Cerney, called ENTROPIA. The guys said that one year ago that sculpture was ... out, nobody knows to where. But there is another, on the roof. A big skull. Anyway, inside, there is exposition, bibliotek, cafe, a shop of fine design. Finally, it`s a goot place to go to know a NEW PRAGUE.

This museum is privately owned and was something like a miracle when it was finished a few years ago. The exhibitions are always very interesting, sometimes they have political character and have strong opinions about our society. It is a must visit for people interested in art and in the circumstances we are living in.

A bit out of the city centre but the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art is well worth a visit. Of course it all depends on the changing exhibition program, however the four shows on when we visited were all worthwhile, and two of them were exceptional - 'Disabled by Normality' and Kamila Zenata 'The Women's Yard' are both excellent exhibitions.

DOX also has an excellent design shop with high quality objects and books. The only drawback is the cafe..... don't arrive hungry, it only serves drinks. The hospitable server rustled up toasted cheese sandwiches for us, but don't plan on having lunch here.

TIP. Take the free minibus which goes from Old Town to DOX daily at 1pm. Details on www.dox.cz/en

the building itself is interesting - the museum is situated in a former factory but completely renovated. there are only temporary exhibitions there so it is worth checking the programme first. there is a nice cafe and a shop with nice small art and design works. it is one of the most popular places among young people interested in art and culture

Visited the DOX in a few occasions for different exhibitions. It has always been intriguing. You can find contemporary art in other gallerias in town, but this center is really big, with multiple exhibitions and it is all about contemporary art. It is a refreshing place in the mostly classic Prague.

This is a wonderful space housing an eclectic and interesting collection, I was not blow away by the exhibitions on display when I was there but it was well worth the visit.

Getting to it can be a bit of a chore though, once you get to the metro on leaving the station turn left, and continue straight, you will see signs on the way keep an eye out for them, DOX is about 600m off a side road on the opposite side of the main avenue.

One of the main current exhibitions had just closed prior to visit, but we weren't advised on this when we bought (full price tickets)
Think we were just unlucky, rest of displays were average/disappointing, certainly not international calibre - although the two room comment on social media/privacy was good, if a bit passe .
Very quiet re visitors.
The one star is for the shop. Great shop, shame about the gallery.
