This is a gem of a little museum in Prague. I learned a lot about Czech Cubist design - which is quite different from the Cubism I learned about at art school (the work of Picasso and Braques mostly). The architecture is really cool, and is quite distinct from other modern styles; the building itself is a fine example. The Cubist Cafe downstairs has sumptuous pastries and excellent coffee. I was just a little disappointed in their background music: just more of the same ubiquitious Euro pop I heard all over the continent. Ho hum. I expected something much more avante garde from that era, or at least something from Dvořák or Janáček. But once again, the museum was a highlight, as were the Decorative Arts Museum and the Mucha Museum.…

Cubist house is one of the some houses built at the beginning of 20th Century in a secession style located in Prague. It is a beautiful and historical building, where you can see the facade. Not more.

Nice small museum, the building itself is worth seeing. Some interesting exhibits of posters as well as cubist furniture. The restaurant on the ground floor was wonderful for breakfast; amazing Eggs Benedict! Great place in Old Prague.

The best thing about this exhibition is the cubist building it's housed in, especially the magnificent staircase. It's not huge, over two floors, but the collection itself is amazing, and worth the 150 kroner entrance fee. However, we arrived at just after 5pm, it closes at 6pm. The museum worker on the top floor just glared at us, looked at his watch and then continued to shake his head. It was very uncomfortable and made me rush through that floor. If you don't enjoy working there and are unable to offer some sort of civil reaction to people paying to see a rare expo then get another job! The other two ladies working there were great, though. Well worth the visit.…

4 of us went in, each having paid 150CZK (~£6) and whilst this isn't a fortune, we were all disappointed with the shortage of things on display. The shop, on the other hand (free to enter) had some stunning things in it.
