    We visited the Moscow Gothic exhibition as well as the free exhibition.
    The Moscow Gothic was very well structured and interesting. The artists background and motives were well described and connected with the art pieces. Definitely worth a visit and the small fee.
    The free exhibition had great pieces from different collections in a good setting. Here the structure was less apparent than in the artist exhibition but still very interesting.
    The staff was friendly and the museum was easy to reach with the tram.
    Sadly some parts were exclusively in Czech, but that didn't undermine the experience greatly.

    We went here on our last day in Prague. It killed a few hours for us. There are 3 floors of illusions and staff are on hand to assist. Mum and I like illusions but the little one doesn't find it as much fun, even though we tried to instil some enthusiasm in her. One of the things you have to remember when visiting here is where to stand. There are lots of opportunities for photos so you can see objects of various sizes and shapes and put yourself in unusual positions to get a decent photo. You can kneel and be knighted or find yourself peeling off wallpaper to discover the last supper. You can even push a man out of a window. It cost us 300 crowns each which might seem expensive but we enjoyed it. There were a couple we couldn't get and upstairs there was one you could only use with mobile phones, but have a look at the pictures yourself and see what you think.

    The museum was a wonderful surprise. It is very small but has a nice collection and I learned a lot about Czech culture and history. I particularly liked seeing some of his sketches. The movie at the end of the hall is a must see, puts things in perspective. Takes about 1 hour for the visit.

    In contrast to crowded Prague castle, the Sternberg Palace is an oasis of calm, as it doesn't feature on the tour guide circuit. In fact, you may have difficulty in finding it as it doesn't even feature on some tourist maps - yet it's just across the road from the Archbishop's Palace, with the entrance down an unlikely looking lane. Most of the art is fairly forgettable, but there are some gems - by Rembrandt, Durer and Dou. There's also a quirky little cafe that does light lunches. Altogether, it's well worth the effort to find the Palace.

    I have visited this gallery with my friends and we all left happy! The gallery is located right in the old town square which is a perfect location if you are already there and sightseeing. The gallery has a total of three floors and on each floor they displayed a different artist (Salvador Dali, Muchq & Warhol).
    The staff were okay. They are not the most welcoming and smiley people but that didn’t really take away from the good time spent at the gallery.
    The art is displayed in fun ways which can help people get a lot of good photo opportunities!
    It was for sure time well spent.

    Small, but peaceful. The oldest preserved church building at Prague Castle and the best preserved example of Romanesque architecture in Bohemia. Built around the year 920 by Prince Vratislav 1, rebuilt in the 12th century, it now has a Baroque façade from the 17th century. Includes the chapel of St. Ludmila, grandmother of St. Wenceslas and the first Czech Christian martyr.

    This beautiful building is wonderfully refreshed but its pretty much just that - a beautiful empty building. The permanent collections were still in storage when I visited and the temporary exhibits were modern and not very decorative. Was disappointed. Thankfully the very gracious staff was very understanding and helpful.

    The museum is trying to persuade you of its deep connection with the Franz Kafka world and essentially its high artistic value. Basic premise is if you don’t like it you don’t get it.
    One finds more absurdity in every museum of contemporary art that is cheaper, richer and not so literal and straightforward how you should perceive the exhibition.

    Not always are modern museums a lot of fun. But this one has some attractive masterpieces worth to go see.

    The gallery showcases about 10 bronze life-size statues depicting scenes or characters from Dali's paintings. While the exhibits are nice to look at, I couldn't get past the huge discrepancy between the price of the ticket and what the gallery actually had to offer.

    I've been to galleries and museums that offered a more complex experience for visitors at a lower price than Dali's Enigma. I don't recommend visiting this place unless you don't mind spending 300 crowns to look at a few statues.

    I had the privilege to be on the official launch of the cooperation between Cermak Eisenkraft and Christie‘s. Lord Snowdon and Angela Bailou launched a special event in cooperation with Tomas Zapletal and David Zelezny, owners of Cermak Eisenkraft. The event was very good, beautiful art and even better entertainment. In my opinion, this is one of the best and most pleasant spaces where you can find contemporary and traditional art.

    Thanks to helpful advice in our guidebook, we checked in advance and learned that the Slav Epic display is currently in Japan. Therefore, don't go if that's what you want to see!

    This museum offers a fantastic collection of European and Czech art of the late 19th to 21st century. It possesses some of the best Picasso's to be seen in the world and what I found to be the most beautiful & largest Renoir I've ever laid eyes on.
    When you enter on the 4th floor (the suggestion is to start at the top in the permanent collection and move downwards to the temporary exhibitions), it seems quite small as the rooms are divided and in fact turn around a central atrium (which cannot be seen). It only seems that there is one more room beyond this one, but there is always another.
    The organisation is by theme rather than by painter or period. Thus night pictures in moonlight will be found together, as will be portraits or scenery. Paintings by Czech artists who are little known outside the country, are hung beside the the most internationally well-known artists. In this way the county's artists are placed in their international context and the foreign visitor can learn who these artists are and appreciate their work.
    In a second type of organisation, we find works of Czech artists from specific areas & cities of the country, Moravia, Bohemia, Brno ...
    The lower floors offer temporary exhibits. We had the luck to be graced with an exhibit of Gebauer's work and the skulpture of Sacher.
    On the ground floor was exhibited the works that had been shown in various years of the Venice Biennale. Too, just outside the bookshop, there are great armchairs & couches to sit and relax in after the visit.

    As a collector of vintage posters myself, I had to take a look when I saw this place. It is an excellent little place. What is unique is that this collection isn't just a collection. They actually tell a story in Pragues very interesting history through the various advertisements that most people probably never realized would be in museum. Highly recommended, it won't take too long to get through but it is very worth it.
