The area
Neighborhood: Malá 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.

This is a very very very small museum. I liked it, but of course: that depends completely on the artist they are showing on that time.

This is a small insightful museum into the history of Czech film. Reasonable cost, very interactive. Look forward to seeing them in their new home when I next return to Prague.

The Museum Montanelli is a small museum - half a dozen rooms - which is used for temporary exhibitions. Until 25/10/2015 this is NaFilM! curated by Czech film studies students and intended to - one day - form the basis of a national film museum. While it's small, there's plenty there to entertain even if you know nothing about Czech film (which we didn't). There's a room devoted to sound effects used to accompany silent films - you can bang coconuts, crank up a wind machine and even race a moving train in order to rescue the heroine. There are some lovely 1930s posters, a screening room showing avant garde films of pre-war Prague and lots more about the technical aspect of film with plenty of buttons to press for people who like that sort of thing. And the curators are eager to talk to visitors. It makes a nice companion piece to the Special Effects Museum only a few minutes walk away.

Montanelli is a small inconspicuous museum located at the bottom part of Nerudova street. You can easily reach it during a walk from Prague Castle to the Charles Bridge. The museum hasn't a fixed exposition, it offers various fine arts exhibitions which change several times per year, you can check the current one on their website. I heard about this museum for the first time after they announced the new NaFilm exhibition (it takes place till November). This current exhibition deals with some periods of Czech film history. I visited it on last Saturday and I liked it. Unlike a typical „don't touch anything“ art exposition this is an interactive place where you are supposed to try and discover a lot of things yourself. And although it was designed and built by Charles University’s students I think that it is not meant only for film enthusiasts but whole families can enjoy it. And if you feel too tired for art you can just relax and take a coffee at the museum café. Only please pay attention to the fact that the museum (except for the café) is not suitable for people with mobility disabilities.
