Some interesting and well-curated displays at this Modern art gallery. Saw an exhibition on Munch but the rest of the gallery was a nice surprise. Many artists I knew and lots I didn't especially as many were Polish so was an excellent cross-section.

I was there to see Van Gogh and Picasso, but guess what... first and third floor (where you can find international art) are closed. Even part of the second floor is closed, but you have to pay full price. It's like going to The Louvre...More

I went because there was a very interesting special exhibit, wanderlust. Lots of colors and large scale. This was very nice but just one room. I walked the rest of the gallery and everything was nicely displayed. There were a lot of closed areas as...More

Much of the museum was closed while we were there, but we still enjoyed the parts that were open. There was a really great modern exhibit, which we loved.

Stuffed with precious artifacts of czechs and mondial art. A bit chaotic but worth visiting! Beware of that the National Gallery has couple of buildings across Prague so be prepared when you go there.

Veletržní Palace is "da bomb" if you love modern and contemporary art. When we went there the third floor (the one with the "Paris" exhibition, therefore Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Kilmt and the "slavic" paintings from Mucha) was under renovation. But the second and forth...More

Beware NO access to galleries on floors 3 and 1where all the paintings I wanted to see were supposed to be. Still got charged full price - really disappointed!!

There are a few National Galleries in Prague. This review is about the Veletrežni Palace. Building not very attractive. But the collections of both Czech and French art are impressive. A must do in Prague for people who like art

The National Gallery is called Veletrzni Palac. It is definitely my favourite in Prague. It is home to some amazing paintings of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. I only found one Van Gogh "Green Corn". Lots of Gauguin... More
