The Museum located at the end of Wenceslas Square itself is a work of art, just magnificent to look at the Neo-Renaissance architecture. However the museum is in restoration, lots of empty spaces, so there's not much as far as exhibits to see. Perhaps the...More

What a waste of money, the queues to get in, and queue for King Tut were ridiculous, I could have arranged things better myself! A lot of wasted space is what you pay for, and the King Tut experience I could have explained better myself!...More

Gorgeous building, inside and outside, amazing place to take a photo and the fountain in front of the museum. The museum is in restoration and almost all exhibits are unavailable. You can see a whale skeleton in one room, a uniform exhibit from World War...More

We visited this museum as we wanted to see the section about Czech pilots who flew in the British Royal Air Force during the war. It was amazing to see that one of their squadrons was based where we live Manston in Kent . Very...More

Fancy looking building with nice architecture, but that’s about where the interesting sights stop. The first room we entered had a number of head sculptures which were named and dated but it’s anyone’s guess as to who these individuals were or their importance. Second room...More

I am fairly cynical about museums to begin with. However, this may take the cake for the worst museum I have ever been to. The outside was beautiful but 430 CZK (one student and one adult) was not worth a view of the inside and...More

The building is beautiful, but empty. just that. Prague is disappointing if you expect anything other than the beautiful buildings. Overpriced. Not worth wasting your energy here, specially knowing the many free or reasonably priced museums around the world.

The National Museum is a beautiful building both outside and inside. At the moment though, there are very few exhibits so it is not really worth paying the entry fee at this this point in time just to see the interior, stunning as it is.

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

We were told it will reopen in about 2 years and probably more, because "these re-modelings are never finished on time" according to a local.
