The good thing about going here is that your ticket gives you entry not only to this gallery, but also to any of the five or so other public galleries in the city for the next seven days. The "Slav Epic" exhibition was rather strange and did not resonate with us as outsiders. Rather sparse exhibitions on the other floors,... More

If you like modern architecture, this is the place for you. Bit far from main Pragues attraction but really worthy to see it. Especially if there is an exhibition of modern art.

We wen to see what we thought would be a few paintings by Alfons Mucha. We were mesmerized by 22 paintings, many over 25 x 25, all with amazing color, light, media, and technique. Then we started going through the other galleries, and had an amazing visual lesson in Czech and Slavic art. We had just a few hours and... More

This building houses the permanent Mucha Slav Epic and Ai Weiwei's Zodiac sculptures. A variety of other exhibits fill the rest of the Palac. One could easily spend most of a day here.

The museum its outside Prague city center but easy to find, just take the subway or tram and a short walk. The house is impressive and big. Its a large museum and I started at the top to finish at bottom and the ongoing Mucha exhibition "the Slave epic", the best part. Big paintings 6-8meters high, really good.

It was a little outside of the city center but it worth to visit. And the one special that I would like to highlight was exhibition of Alphonse Mucha "Slavs epic" Large scale canvases painted in Art Nova style and devoted to Slavs national history and glory. For Art lovers this exhibition ask for more time, at least add 45... More

Really excellent collection of modern and contemporary art. We went to see the Slav Epic and stayed for the other amazing floors, easy to spend a few hours here. The cafe downstairs is good too.

I'm not a big modern art fan (apart from the surrealists, especially Dali), but my wife wanted to go, so we went. Firstly, let me say that Prague really needs to make it easier to find and to get to - they have sort of tucked it away, it's poorly signposted, it's as if they don't want you to go.... More

The Veletržní palác (Trade Fair Palace) is a large functionalist building. After being almost destroyed by large fire in the 1970s, it was later refurbished and opened as the part of the National Gallery, focusing on contemporary art. On the second floor you can see the semi-permanent exhibition of Alfons Mucha's Slav Epic. He painted 20 large canvases between 1910... More
