“Fantastic Space”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a wonderful space housing an eclectic and interesting collection, I was not blow away by the exhibitions on display when I was there but it was well worth the visit.

Getting to it can be a bit of a chore though, once you get to the metro on leaving the station turn left, and continue straight, you will see signs on the way keep an eye out for them, DOX is about 600m off a side road on the opposite side of the main avenue.

“Wiw, exciting contěmpary art exhibitions”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Amazing private initiative, sponsered by four millionairs, with very often surprsing exhibitions.
In its first year several hunderd thousands fellow visitors found their way to this renovated industrial complex quite out of zhe touristic centre of Prague.
Nice cafe and interesting design shop too.
Prague foto exhibition was held this year here too and it was so much better then on its usual location in Manes!
Unfortunately the entranceprice is for Czech standards quite high!
But considering the costly exhibitions understandable.
Always wortwile checking out this ultra modern buiding when in Prague!

“Marvellous DOX”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

For any serious lovers of modern art DOX has got to rank as one of the finest private art galleries in the world. It is certainly one of the largest at over 6,000 sq metres. It may be a little bit out of town but those who appreciate modern art this is an attraction not to be missed.

“Impressive contemporary art center”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Excellent collection on the Czech contemporary art in a very well laid out building.
We were really impressed by this contemporary art center and made the trip by tram worth while.
This is the place to go if you want to have a real honest overview on Czech art during the 50's-60's
Highly recommended in it's own class.
Dont forget to browse through the impressive library and design shop.

“Hot art in a cold climate”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Fabulous and diverse collectionof art through the ages - many familiar artists' work (Klimt, Van Gogh, Cezanne to name but a few) and some prized paintings.
Don't be put off by the KGB styled security guards - it somehow adds to the experience!

I'm afraid this is a mistaken review - we never exhibitied Klimt nor Cezzane and our custodians certainly don't recall KGB agents :)
