We defy anyone to see everything in this massive gallery in one day. We spent 5 hours and still only saw part of it. Four floors of permanent exhibition plus lots of temporary exhibits. The Czexh art to 1930 was fascinating, introducing us to some...More

Veletržní palác is perhaps not for everyone. I went to art school once and I love to see how the visual arts can be explored in many ways. The Veletržní palác can not be a better example of this. First it is off the beaten...More

Went to this museum because couple of travel guides had told some interesting facts about its exhibition and there layouts. Permanent exhibitions were however a bit boring in a huge museum. I didn't like the contrast between functionalistic architecture and old classic paintings. Modern art...More

Interesting building, and a nice mixture of the modernist French and European masters (Picasso, Braques, Rodin, Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, et al.) alongside some much lesser known Czech and Slovak artists, who were strongly influenced by the other Europeans. The gallery is larger than you...More

This museum presents Czech art of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. It is an attractive viewing experience, comprehensive collection, and great educational experience. Highly recommended.

The gallery is is a purpose built building some distance from the old city; the easiest way of getting there is by taxi. A wide range of exhibits for all tastes with a good cafe.

The Veletrzni Palac had a beautiful collection of the Czech art and history. The building contradicts the collection held within. The Veletrzni Palac has the Modern art collection of Czech Republic especially if you're interested in the art of 1800s of Europe. The collection held...More

This was a very welcome surprise. The dowdy building belies what you find within! If you have an interest in European art from around 1850-1940 then this has to be a place to visit. With a very extensive collection of CZ artists you will get...More

I just did it this morning. I'm actually sitting in the museum right now. You walk about 2 blocks to the Palladium shopping center and catch the number 6 tram (on the side of the shopping center). You go three stops. Get... More
