Really nice experience with contemporary art. Nice exhibitions, 2 tarraces where you can drink coffee and enjoy the art. Really big space so be prepared to lost yourself in floors and rooms.

An inspired choice
Oct 2019
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.

V Underwhelming/bad value
Feb 2020
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.

Wow what a great museum. The featured artist when we visited was Petr Sis. What an amazing artist and display. The museum has a fantastic library. They also have a wonderful gift and book shop.

nice place, but all depends on which artist they show of course.

Nice place. But what really got on my nerves was that I had to queue for 30 minutes in the freezing cold. Was it that busy? NOT AT ALL. They were two ladies behind the desk. But only one of them was working. The other one was just reading her book. I mean: if you are not working, don't sit there. It is just frustrating for customers that are freezing in the cold. It also doesn't help that the computer system to print a ticket is build somewhere in 1978 I guess, because printing a single entrance ticket takes an eternity. Really. But. The centre itself: well, it depends on the exposition of course. I kind of liked it, but for me the zeppelin on the roof was worth the entry ticket. Really really liked that!!

How many museums have a zeppelin on site? This wonderful place is architecturally stunning, with gallery after gallery of cutting edge contemporary art. Oh, and a great bookstore/gift shop as well.

Small but ok for a rainy day

Not the biggest gallery, but had a few interesting exhibits. A couple were closed for installation so there is more to see at some times. Large airship was impressive.

Lovely space, poor exhibition!

the museum structure is really beautiful. Exposures a bit sparse and uninteresting. half of the museum was closed for installation and that's why we received a 30% discount. To visit, but find out first about the exhibitions because it is an hour walk from the center
