It's not a palace. It's a 100% world class art gallery which you should experience.

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...More

Excellent exhibitions, good art always interesting. I am coming to visit each time when I am on the city and I always enjoy the exhibition. Wonderful building serving the art so well!

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...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...More

Not that some of the art isn't interesting, not much of a modern art fan, but it also seems quite typical that you can see in many other national level galleries. A bit cold and industrial inside. Wasn't that interesting after visiting the other galleries...More

So, this might be a palace but it looks like an office building. It houses the National Gallery of Modern art. Don't go expecting a palace. But if you buy the national gallery pass, make the trip across the river and check out some modern...More

It's a bit outside of downtown Praha, but it's really worth a visit if you like art. Very wide and interesting permanent collection of Czech and international 19-20-21 centuries. Many masterpieces too. 5 floors. Tiring - you need many energies. Not so many chairs and...More

Mucha was great, the explanation in the leaflet that you have to buy separately (apart from the already pricey ticket) greatly enhanced our understanding. One thing to improve is to sort the paintings in the leaflet by the order in which they are displayed. Looking...More

Took a little bit of finding as it was our first day in the city but it was so worth it! The Mucha Slave epic is very well laid out and there was a small brochure that we bought that gave a couple of paragraphs...More

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
