The museum was close to where we were staying and it was a lovely collection. When we visited they had a group of kids doing art work as part of their class. It was so nice to see kids enjoying art. Also, the museum was pretty and clean and the staff was great! Really really lovely. Not overwhelming at all.... More

Interesting permanent works as well as individual exhibitions. We saw an Andy Warhol exhibition and Jan Svankmajer's Kunstkammer which should not be missed. All in all a good location on the river and a lovely stroll from the old city. Lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

situated in a beautiful park along the river, the fun begins as soon as you enter the sculpture filled courtyard. In the museum itself, the special exhibit on automobiles in art was superb. The regular exhibit halls are all off an art filled central stairway of about four floors. The only minor annoyance was having to have one's admission ticket... More

I am not sure I love modern art but I often find it interesting. The Kampa museum is not large and it focuses on Czech artists so don't expect a huge comprehensive exhibit. The location is great and the building used to be an old flour mill so the building is lovely in its own right. The museum has a... More

Excellent central European art museum located on the bank of the river Vltava. It was real pleasure to see the works of Frantisek Kupka and other artists, as well as many interesting and sometimes amusing installations such as yellow penguins that glow in the night on the river bank.

Peaceful area with great views of river. The work on display was interesting, but difficult to fully appreciate as we don't know Czech.

I have visited this gallery on several occasions and it never fails to please. There is a good permanent exhibition, and always interesting temporary exhibitions. The building itself is inspiring, next to the river and quite close to the Charles Bridge, with a mixture of old and new architecture. The use of glass throughout the gallery is inspired. Each room... More

A nice collection of modern art not far from Charles bridge. Especially on a very warm and humid summer day it was great to escape the heat and check the exhibits in this museum. I can especially recommend to take the staircase to the upper floor where you can have a special view on prague. Do not be scared of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
