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 a real sense of CZ's contribution to impressionist, cubist and other turn of the century... More

The National Gallery in Prague is in several buildings scattered around the city. You can by a ticket to get into just the museum you want or for a little more you buy a ticket that will get you into all of them (which is what we did). The Veletrzni Palac houses the Modern Art and it is quite extensive.... More

This is out of the way so take public transport or taxi. The admission fee is expensive. 250 kronor for the permanent exhibition and another 250 to see the temporary exhibits. I usually like art galleries but I find this one boring. Maybe it is the layout of the gallery but we could not get excited about it. There was... More

We could have spent far more time at this compact art gallery. We are in our 50's, and visited with two adult children, first taking in the temporary Ai Wei Wei exhibit, which was very impressive. We only had about minutes for the permanent collection, so missed a lot. TIP: our student son paid $0 for admission to the permanent... More

This museum houses a large collection of mainly Check Art, but also some floors hold some French and European Art. Names like Klimpt, Monet and others are advertised at the entrance, but most of those artist are represented by a single work. But still, a nice collection and worth the visit.

About a day's worth here! The No 6 tram stops directly outside and the building itself is beautiful. At the time of visiting there is an exhibition by Ai Weiwei which is astounding. Art from 19, 20 and 21st century covered. One of 6 national art galleries in Prague. 600 KC each to enter.

We've been a couple of times in the last few years to see the Slavic Epic and the rest of the exhibitions. It's an amazing space, and yes, it's huge. Don't expect to get around it all in one day if you're even slightly interested in the detail of the exhibits. From current reviews it seems like the Epic has... More

I visited here for the purpose of seeing Mucha' Slav Epic, only to find out that it is gone, out on loan to museums elsewhere. What a disappointment! Since we were already at the museum, we tried to make the best of it, and did see spend an hour wandering the cavernous building. We enjoyed a number of paintings we... More

My girlfriend and I went there during a opend-doors weekend. We were not expecting that much but I must say the museum has a quite nice small collection. It cannot be compared to Paris, London, Vienna or Berlin - or even Dresden - but we liked. We discovered Capek, few pieces by Picasso. The bad points : the building could... More
