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...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...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,...More

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

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

A tripadvisor member stated that 6 days ago they went to see Mucha's Slav Epic but it was not there since it was loaned out. Does anyone know when it will return? Thank you.

I just did it this morning. I'm actually sitting in the museum right now. You walk about 2 blocks to the Palladium shopping center and catch the number 6 tram (on the side of the shopping center). You go three stops. Get... More
