I'm rather a "barbar" when it comes to art but I highly recommend visit of this gallery and especially the exhibit of Alfons Mucha art - The Slav Epic. It is breathtaking! Other sections of this gallery are worth to see once there - I enjoyed the 4th and 3th floor with Czech and International art of 19th and 20th... More

Came here to experience Mucha's Slav Epic. You can buy a ticket for just this exhibit, though I wish I would have had time for the whole museum. Loved the Slav Epic, it is truly amazing the story Mucha brought to life on a larger than life scale.

It's a bit of a walk from the city centre (or a cheap and quick taxi ride) but the Trade Fair Palace/Veletrzni Palac (part of the National Gallery listed here too) definitely worth a visit. Huge collection on five floors (with temporary exhibitions on the fifth) and Mucha's Slav Epic on the ground floor (awesome). Café Jedna is good for... More

It is a five-floor museum and each floor is full of art and architecture works. It has Klimt, Van Gogh, Kupka, Kokoschka, Schiele, Monet, Gaugin, Picasso... so many works of art. It is a wonderful museum to spend time on. For those who love classical art, modern art, sculptures, contemporary art, there is everything available. One needs to spend more... More

This is a very big space with some big international names and also major Czech artists. The Mucha exhibit is truly impressive. The cafe is very reasonably priced and not your typical fare. It's a good place to recuperate after two floors and before you continue on to the next two or three.

Apart from the permanent collections, went to see the exhibition "Alfons Mucha: The Slav Epic", monumental pictures celebrating Slav genius, a must see if you want to understand an aspect of European history that gets too little attention in the West.

A wide range of all types of art, so something for everyone from Mordern Art to more traditional, you can easily spend an afternoon here and with a lovey cafe selling home made cakes - a must as part of the trip.

We bought admission to the entire museum and would not recommend it - the rest of the collection is average at best. But Mucha's Slav Epic, a history of the Slavic people in 20 massive egg tempura and oil paintings, is in its own room and has its own ticket price. It is definitely worth getting to this charming side... More

We came specifically to view Mucho's Slavic Epic and we were not disappointed. If you like "art deco" style you'll recognize Mucho's style. He painted 20 massive canvases and they are really something to see.

The museum is a trolley ride away from old town but worth it. We only visited the museum to view the Slav Epic paintings by Alfons Mucha. Those paintings are an amazing collection of art that can overwhelm you by its size and its depiction of various historical scenes. Take time to read the summaries in the guide since it... More
