The museum has the definitive collection of Czech Art, organized chronologically, very comprehensive, though somewhat skimpy when it comes to the Communist years and the impact of Socialist Realism on Czech artists and on Czech arts under the Nazis. Excellent collection of Czech cubism, works...More

This is a local recommendation that holds a very extensive collection of Czech artists. It it extremely large and like a ghost town. The displays of art were boring and the art itself was made with many dark colors for the most part. We spent...More

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
