About
Gallery of Steel Figures is an interactive and original exhibition in the centre of Prague. Our steel figures are inspired by characters from cartoons, sci-fi, fantasy, fairytales, pop culture as well as animals and hits from the automotive world. You can touch, climb in and sit on all the figurines and of course, take pictures with your favourite superheroes or childhood friends. And the good part is, all exhibits are made from recycled steel parts! Which means, we managed to make scrap and metal waste into art! We exhibit over 100 figures on 1200 m² and two floors in a beautiful art noveau building in the historical centre of Prague. If you get tired, you can rest at our café on the 1st floor and have a cup of coffee, homemade lemonade or a delicious fresh pizza. We also offer a large selection of original souvenirs for you to bring back home. We hope to welcome you soon!

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

Great experience. We loved all the statues and found them amazing, a lot of skill is needed to make these.
We stayed here for around an hour and really enjoyed all the figures.
Go here over Madam tusards .

It’s an exhibition of handmade recycled exhibits that are inspired by fairy tale heroes, comics and sci-fi movies, as well as animals, motorcycles and luxury cars.
You can sit in a luxury car or riding a cool motorcycle even shake hands with your favorite super heroes.

The opportunity for a selfie with a personality from showbusiness or a cartoon character or sitting in an expensive car is the major draw and popularity for this attraction. Getting up close and personal, even to touch the exhibits is permitted – there is even a sign telling encouraging you to do it. However, despite this welcomed freedom to snuggle up and take a selfie with Arnold Schwarzenegger (as the Terminator), Johnny Depp (as Captain Jack Sparrow), Michael Jackson, Darth Vader, the Hulk, the Simpson family, Wall-e, Iron Man and many, many more, you are strongly advised NOT to climb on them. That didn’t seem to deter parents (like me) from placing their kids on the back of a dinosaur to pretend going for a ride for an amusing photograph for the family album.

In many ways this is like a waxworks, except the exhibits are made from recycled steel components. Like gear wheels, spark plugs, screws, wire netting and sheet steel. The similarity with waxworks continues as you begin to realise that a good number of the figures have no likeness to the people that they are meant to portray – LoL.

The exhibit is housed on 2 floors of what used to look like an old department store. There is still a counter and display cabinets on the first floor which has been left in situ. The ground floor holds mainly cars, some of which you can sit in the driving and passenger seats. Admittedly, they are not exactly comfortable. Although the Game of Thrones seat is slightly more bearable. The remainder of the ground floor and all of the first floor are figurines generally from film and TV franchise. These include the Minions, Star Wars, the Simpsons, Shrek, Princess Fiona and family and a host of characters from Marvel comics.

My favourite model was that of the Hulk. It was particularly well made and looked like the character. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Thor, Captain Jack Sparrow, the Shrek family, Chewbacca and Snow White which are laughably kitsch ‘rubbish’.

The exhibit has a wide appeal. It is perfect fodder for social media.

Very unique museum and special experience. You can take photos with your super heros, sit on huge motorbikes and on my favourite - throne. Interesting for children above 5 (might be dangerous for younger children as they might cut themselves or be hit by car doors) and parents. The tickets (30 € for family) are almost of the same price as for the Prague ZOO (32 € for family) thus quite expensive for pretty small museum. You can hardly spend more than 1 or 2 hours in it. We longed for some titles, explanations next to the figures: who is who, how it was made, how long it lasted to make it, who did it and when. There is nothing next to the figures.

We had a great time. The upper floor has a small cafe, which is another plus. Overall, good place to visit with your friends or family.

We weren't expecting the great variety and ingenuity of the figures. Particularly appealing were the signs inviting us to touch and manipulate the structures. There was a large wall of pictures that had been drawn by visitors, mostly by kids.

Fantastic exhibition!. Great gallery to be visited either with children or just adults. It has 2 floors full of figures made with Steel and it shows the really hard word behind then.
In the ground floor they have a few "replicas" of cars and motorbikes that you can actually sit on them, and also figures of famous artists like Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Sparrow and many more... surprising how similar they real comparing with the real ones (having in mind that are done with steel...)
In the second floor they have images about movies (Minioms, Predator, Simpsons, Shrek...) transformers, Hulk...

Highly recommended , worthy to spend around 1 hour enjoying, touching and wondering around the gallery.
