This is an exquisite show of Giacometti’s development since his portraits at age 17 to his iconic chiseled down figures. Well curated and so far not crowded. It is a multimedia experience with photos, video,
sculptures and paintings. Go!
Fantastic exhibition of Giacometti which we visited. Would recommend visiting the gallery building and shop also as both located in high ceiling and impressive rooms and building. One of our trip highlights
This was one of the highlights of my trip to Prague. The building itself, unprepossessing from the outside, is breathtaking inside, with a towering atrium surrounded by galleries, creating fabulous perspective. The top floor had a wonderful photographic exhibition. The fourth floor is currently closed,...More
The National Museum of Prague is actually scattered across many buildings. This one, some distance from the town center, has some excellent artwork, but is also one of the oddest art museums we have ever visited.
The museum itself is roughly two miles from the...More
The building alone is worth the trip. You don’t have to pay for students under 26 so not too expensive. We went the wrong way out of the lifts and couldn’t immediately find the exhibition which felt a bit surreal. However the gallery staff are...More
The best place to see modern Czech art in Prague is the Trade Fair Palace on Dukelských hrdinů 47 Prague 7. The collection of Czech art from late nineteenth and twentieth century is wonderful, including non Czech artist such as Munch, Van Gogh and Kokoschka....More
Kinský Palace is one of the most beautiful rococo buildings in Prague. As an architect, Anselmo Lurago was employed here. It is good to know: two different architects with the surname Lurago worked in Bohemia. Carlo Lurago in the Early Baroque and Anselmo Lurago in...More
Across the river from our Hilton hotel, I went expressly to see the 12 Slav Epic paintings by Mucha. THEY ARE NOT THERE. Note photos on Trip Advisor site show them as some of the first that come up. False advertising. TAKE THEM DOWN! I...More
Huge. Very very huge. Lots of modern art which mostly left me cold. As did the building itself which is a modern monstrosity that is white and filled with large rooms with few benches to rest on. There were a few fabulous pieces of art...More

The National Gallery is called Veletrzni Palac. It is definitely my favourite in Prague. It is home to some amazing paintings of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. I only found one Van Gogh "Green Corn". Lots of Gauguin, Picasso, Seurat, Rouault, Matisse, Braque, bronzes by Bourdelle and may by Rodin, Derain, Suzanne Valadon, Rousseau, Chagall, Leger, van Dongen, Bonnard, Dufy, Utrillo, Orthon Friesz. A magnificent Toulouse Lautrec but ruined by light from a window opposite. You must also visit the modern (international) floor. Paintings by Edvard Munch (before he started "screaming) and Klimt (before he discovered gold), Kandinsky, Max Oppenheimer, Bernard Buffet. Lovely little cafe on the ground floor. I really recommend going to this gallery, even though it's a little way out of the way. Worth it
