The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague collects and preserves for future generations — in both national and international contexts — examples of historical and contemporary crafts, as well as applied arts and design. We believe in harmony between...more
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
A morning in this museum was to have been one of the long awaited highlights of our trip to Prague. After the building’s lengthy renovation we could not wait to see the fabulous collection again and drink coffee in its atmospheric cafe.
Imagine if the...More
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
We expected to find "decorative arts" however, this museum now has only three "special" exhibits and do not display any of their permanent collection. There is an excellent photographic display by a well known Moravian photographer; an exhibit on soviet apartment "architecture??" and the third...More
Don't waste your or money visiting this museum--they have removed ALL the glass and textiles during renovation and substituted some very poor exhibitions of doll houses, architecture and photography. They are still charging full price to visit and not telling us that they don't have...More
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
modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

Umeleckoprumyslove museum (Museum of Decorative Arts) is the edifice adjacent to Old Jewish cemetery, opposite the Rudolfinum. Unlike the Modern arts, this is showing not only final products but you can learn about the processes and various materials used by the artisans in manufacturing of everyday objects throughout history. In my opinion to call it a museum of applied art is more appropriate
