The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

I did not even go inside the museum, but took great joy in viewing the Černý babies and the yellow penguins.

At the time of writing, there is a construction barrier blocking your view of the penguins. A good time to go, if you don't want to eat at the over-priced modern art restaurant, is before the restaurant opens. You can get a nice view of the penguins through the closed gate at the entrance to the restaurant.

Would have liked to see the penguins lit up at night, but did not get a chance to do so.

A compact museum currently focused on the Czech artist Kupka with one gallery room (out of about 8) showing sculptures by the Cubist sculptor Gutfreund. And of course there are the outdoor sculptures that include the Crawling Babies and the Penguins. We like Cubist art, so we found the collection interesting. The Kupka exhibits take you through the artist's transitions in style throughout his life. And the museum is in a very pleasant riverside park on the Mala Strana side of the river - easy walk from the Charles Bridge.

Come on guys, not good enough. Half of the extensive space is filled with plans for an art complex, architectural/ planning information which might make more sense if given an English explanation, otherwise it really does mean an awful lot. If this had been explained at the outset we really wouldn't have bothered.

We did merely stumble upon this venue looking for the yellow penguins which were otherwise largely covered by temporary construction hoarding.

Honestly, unless you are of a fan of the two artists being highlighted (rather abstract) continue walking on by. Oh, let's conclude on a positie. It is nice and warm inside.

It is so accessible from old town or Mala Strana, and the size and plan of the museum is thoughtful, professional and very well done. Excellent curatorship and we particularly liked the focus on 3 main artists. this really opened our eyes to Czech artists and allowed us to see the development of their work/art over time. Highly recommend.

If you are wishing to see Modern contemporary and well-chosen works then this is your Museum. You will be faced by intelligent staff who understand so much about their exhibits. I cannot praise the exhibits too highly. Simply go there.

I loved it. Great expositions they were interesting and there was always an English traduction. There was Kupka, Brentnova & zubek artwork.

It was just a tiny bit expensive and there were no seats to sit a little while looking to the great paintings.

Museum Kampa offers, among others, a pernament “cross-section” exibition of Frantisek Kupka works. FK is one of the most sought after czech authors at art auctions.

In the previous morning we spent a couple of hours on the 4th floor of the city modern art museum and loved it. Great variety, well curated and cheap.
This museum was stuffy, tiny and unwelcoming.
The penguins were fun, but they are free to see!
Really poor value and frankly a waste of our time.
Save your time and money: go to the National Museum of Pragues amazing gallery.

We paid 320CZK each for entry to all exhibits, which consisted of three floors of exhibitions and another in a separate building.

Pieces on exhibit were generally okay but nothing seemed to interest or stand out massively. Staff were hit and miss - some seemed pleased to interact with you about what was on display, others followed you around silently as you tried to view the art.

Wouldn't return or recommend, but did offer a peaceful hour away from the busy tourist location its in.
