The visit to the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art proved to be an inspired choice. It's a little far from the city centre and the hotel where we were staying, but we got there easily using the tram.
The museum is organized in a former factory. It is a new museum, opened in 2008, thanks to an independent initiative. Visitors can admire contemporary fine art created by mainly Czech artists. Works by international artists can also be seen, depending on the museum's activity program.
I particularly liked the airship on the roof (Gulliver Airship), a totally unusual space that can accommodate various artistic activities.

Some very strong and thought provoking Imagery. Dissipated that staff were unable to tell us much about the art work . Was a bit of a longer walk from the old town then we expected but was beautiful spring day so we enjoyed stretching our legs.

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.

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 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.

and I am not saying it just because I have a year membership in the club of the supporters. I am saying it because I love this place, I love this bright white walls, where I can focus on art and not get distracted by anything else. And the art displayed here is worth the visit. I am a fan of exploring my mind by thinking. And Dox Prague gives me a chance to react. It's a place where you can get easily lost, but isn't it great? To get lost in the art?

Note: Before you go to the gallery. Make sure there is more than one art exhibition. Sometimes the house is packed with art, sometimes there is only one exhibition.

Btw. Today started the exhibition of Martin Parr, member of the Magnum agency.

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.
