The museum does not offer rich permanent collection on show (yet), but some of the temporary exhibits are great. The best I have been to, by far, is the Josef Koudelka, Returns photo show, a review of all his works. Especially fascinating are his 1960s...More

While this beautiful building is recently extensively renovated showing a rich art deco style inner decoration, the permanent exhibition is still not rearranged and as a result closed (probably until 2019) - something even the official website of the museum does not say (and is...More

Like others who have reviewed, I really came to see the glass and other decorative arts. But we did like the three special exhibits that were there, especially the photographs from the 1968 uprising.

Excellent reconstruction and repair of the building itself but resulting in a total loss of the permanent exhibition of glass, clocks, clothes etc. The themed temporary exhibitions were no substitution and have very little to do with the name of the museum. The new cafe...More

Very nice building, which is the only positive thing to say as the collection compared to Berlin or London, is so small as not worth your time or money to visit. Unfortunately they blocked the view into the Jewish Cemetery which could have improved the...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

Cannot help with the question, but I can say that the exhibition at the Municipal House of works from the Museum of Decorative Arts is excellent.
