    Excellent thematically structured gallery with pictures from many major artists
    We went to the gallery on the North side of the river a bit out of the centre. The gallery’s thematic structuring is some of the best I’ve seen, with really interesting parallels made between works in different styles and from different eras. There were works by all the great French impressionists, a surprising number of Picassos and many excellent Czech artists I had never come across. Good mix of paintings and sculptures. Very quiet October when we went. We’ll worth the trip.

    Great artist exhibition
    We visited the Moscow Gothic exhibition as well as the free exhibition. The Moscow Gothic was very well structured and interesting. The artists background and motives were well described and connected with the art pieces. Definitely worth a visit and the small fee. The free exhibition had great pieces from different collections in a good setting. Here the structure was less apparent than in the artist exhibition but still very interesting. The staff was friendly and the museum was easy to reach with the tram. Sadly some parts were exclusively in Czech, but that didn't undermine the experience greatly.

    An outstanding place for art lovers
    If you want to visit Narodni Gallery Praha you need to know in advance what you want to see because there are several locations. We chose to visit Trade Fair Palace. 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 building that houses the museum was built in the early 20th century and rebuilt with difficulty after a massive fire in 1974. The interior space has wide openings and an indoor elevator, overlooking this space, connects the floors. Collections are organized very professionally, during periods and current, offering the public works from the mid-1700s to the present. It was a delight to discover the outstanding works of many Czech artists that I did not know about until this visit. When we visited the Galleries, a temporary exhibition was dedicated to Alberto Giacometti. It was a real privilege to admire so many of the artist's creations gathered in one place. For art lovers, Narodni Galerie Gallery is an outstanding place.
    Dear Lucian, thank you so much for your lovely review. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit of the Trade Fair Palace and that you discovered new artists. I hope that you will also visit our other buildings in the future. Best wishes, Josefina

The Gallery is located in the lively Prague No. 7 suburb where you rarely encounter tourists on the streets or in shops unless you are in this Gallery. We decided to visit levels 2, 3, 4 and after over an hour we had a break in the Gallery coffee shop as we were overwhelmed by the fantastic displays of artists work from all over Europe; on level 3 the subject is the First Czech Republic 1918-1938, and included the French art collection. The Gallery is an extensive space which allows visitors not to feel cramped. You can take photos with no flash. We also had a couple of interesting conversations with the staff. Excellent option especially on rainy days. The coffee shop has a play area for children too.

We wandered over to this gallery from the city (it’s quite a walk..), but were rewarded with some stunning modern art on the 4th floor.
Really well curated and vast...!
The staff are friendly - especially the lovely old woman on the cloakroom duty.
And there is a trendy cafe on the ground floor - unfortunately we didn’t have time to try it.
This visit was one of the highlights of our 3 day trip to Prague.

The building is very large, airy and full of light. A nice example of functionalism. There are usually numerous high-quality exhibitions, the staff is friendly and the cafe at the ground floor has good, relaxed atmosphere and very tasty servings at affordable price. Easy to access from the center by tram. Highly recommended.

There a lot of Národní Galeries in Prague however Trade Fair Palace at Holešovice is # 1 among all of them. Real Stendhal's Syndrom in art if you love art. Picasso, Rodin, Gogh, Monet, Degas, Klimt, Kupka, Liska, Filla. Renoir ... worth a travel to Holešovice. Remember is at Holešovice . Please, do not get confusse for comments from different Narodni Galleries.

The location is little out side of central area.
It is nice place to visit. Most of arts are from Czech artists. It is big place so it will take sometime to look all floors.
There are cafe, but it was crowded when I went there around 3pm.
After you buy a ticket, you need to all your belongings to lockers. You need 10 kc.
There is toilets you don't need to pay.

Based on all the fantastic reviews...everywhere, we headed up to see the Slav Epic on May 16, 2015. No such luck. We were greeted with a sign and instructions on entry that the exhibit is now closed until further notice! Huge disappointment, no indication as to when it will reopen. The rest of the museum is open...but let's be real...this is the gem and it's closure is a huge loss.

Anyone knowing the basis of the closure and when anticipated to reopen please post!

It is May 10, 2018. It's the National Gallery. The weather is beautiful and Prague is full of visitors. So why, oh why is the National Gallery mostly closed? That is very bad planning. Not worth the visit at all.

Tired of Old Masters? This non-descript building 30 minutes walk from Charles Bridge is crammed full of all kinds of very interesting 18-20th century paintings and sculpture. I don't know much about art history, but it kept my interest. You get a good flavor of what was happening around these artists: how the times affected their art and what the art meant during those times. We stayed for 2 hours, but you could easily spend 4 hours. Lots of info in English. The handsets in most cases simply repeat what is on the sign next to the exhibit. Not crowded in peak of tourist season. You pay different fees depending on what floor(s) you want to visit. The guards do check you in to each floor. Take the subway because the walk is very boring.

Extraordinary work of fine art. Mucha's masterpiece. Just the sheer size of it. Astonishingly beautiful.
The 20 impressive pieces on display are very different, much more 'serious' subject - they depict the Slav's long history.

The amazing display of Mucha's work here is quite different from his print work, the posters and lithographs. His posters and calendars with his art work are prominently displayed in bookstores throughout Prague.
I have a nice collection of his print work and lithographs and I thought I knew Mucha's art well. Like many others I was taken by surprise here.
The enormity, the depth and seriousness of the subject - shows the artist's different style. His life's work masterpiece.

If you are Mucha's fan, you will find your way there....
If you are not yet familiar with Mucha - and trying to decide ...Go, be surprised and amazed. It takes a little more effort to get there, but it is definitely worth it...

It is a very personal experience for Czechs and others with Slavic heritage...
Very personal for us...
Make time to visit - you are sure to be impressed ...

Housed in a former trade fair building across the river from the old town, this is a fine art museum with five floors of elegantly displayed paintings, sculptures, furniture, and handcrafted objects from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. We began with the upper floors devoted to Czech artists and thoroughly enjoyed the wealth of talent, artists whose names were not at all familiar to us. Signage is excellent: explanations are in both Czech and English. Our Prague guidebook emphasized the usual European artists--Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, etc.--and works by these artists are in the collection, but it would be a mistake to concentrate on those well-known works. There's a nice cafe on the ground floor: to avoid museum fatigue, we took a lunch break (unusual fresh lentil salad, vegetable quiche) and, after viewing another floor, a dessert break (carrot cake, blueberry cake). Large bags must be checked or put in lockers. Photos without flash are allowed. Restrooms are located on each floor. The museum is closed on Mondays.
