Great gallery

Several expositions in an interesting industrial building. Loved the interior. Student discounts, even more for students of art.

I don't know what I expected but I expected more art and less mechanics on the art. It's a small museum and the highlight was the store so that's weird.

This place makes a nice change from the rest of Prague. Only good if you like contemporary Art. We really liked the exhibition and the sculptures scattered around the gallery. The zeppelin is a real treat. The data and the Polish churches exhibitions are very interesting. Make sure you read the captions of the churches as they give you a... More

The exhibits and art were great. The building is a bit confusing and we ended up wandering around a lot trying to find everything.

I was taken to DOX by a friend. We went to see the exhibition of Vaclav Havel photographs. Official and unofficial. The exhibition was touching and inspiring. The DOX building is fascinating. In essence, Modernist, but with hints of the architect Libeskind. Great for families and children. Overall a welcoming atmosphere. The spaces include amusing features, for example, the angle-poise...

I am a great lover of art but I wasn't able to connect with the exhibitions on show. Nevertheless, the Zeppelin architectural addition to the building is an interesting project that's accompanied by an exhibition on the history of zeppelins and the documented process of its making, and you can walk inside of it, unless you're really scared of heights....

I just became a member of this museum. This is because the entire exhibit area changes over at least six to eight times a year. The former industrial space can be a bit of a maze to get around, but the staff is extremely helpful. Lots of great sculpture pieces around the grounds, on balconies and on the roofs -... More

There aren't many places to run across contemporary art in Prague. That's why I'm glad we have DOX. We come here twice a year or so and wonder around. I like the space, I like it's small size that doesn't overwhelm you and doesn't exhaust the kids. I also like to stop by the design store inside. This is the... More
