This museum is a must for those who appreciate fashion and design. The building itself is pure art, and the exhibitions are outstanding. I'll definitely visit it again!

Very nice building which in itself is worth a visit. Exhibitions were very much centered around Hana Podalská, a famous fashion designer, and Ascher, both original textiles and contemporary inspiration from that work. I very much missed secession and cubism. However, they had a wonderful...More

The Museum Of Decorative Arts in Prague is a museum that really holds no interest to me personally but I must say that the building that houses the museum is simply stunning. In an area of outstandingly beautiful architecture including the magnificent Rudolfinum, this museum...More

The Decorative Arts Museum is still being renovated but still worth visiting. Currently there are 6 exhibits to see plus looking at the updates that have been done to the building. The Ascher exhibit was outstanding.

This is a very small museum. If you go with a tour group, they force your group to stay together for the exhibits which is ridiculous. Not all exhibits were open. The security guards are not very helpful. The exhibits were interesting and unique so...More

Close to the Rudolfinium in Josefov. We visited in February when we were lucky enough to see a temporary exhibition about the Czech artists and designers Lida and Zika Ascher. Their influence on textile design was explored through photos, letters, swatches and garments. The other...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

Cannot help with the question, but I can say that the exhibition at the Municipal House of works from the Museum of Decorative Arts is excellent.
