Art Museum Museum
Learn more about the life and art of a major figurative painter of the early 20th century and protege of Gustav Klimt at Egon Schiele Art Centrum. Apart from paintings and drawings, the center houses an exhibit about the artist's life and work, including childhood photographs, sketchbooks, his studio furniture, and a plaster death mask. His nude portraits are rich in anatomical detail and were controversial at the time, forcing the artist to leave town after only two years. A big painted city map, in a small room on the top floor, shows the locations of the various landscapes in Schiele's paintings. Amenities include a cafe and a shop selling books, posters, postcards, and T-shirts.

  • Egon Schiele is hardly exceptional in the Czech Republic joins the beautiful historic interior with a very active exhibition activities. The permanent exhibition is worth at least two visits and private exhibitions are almost always notable and original. And in the shop a lot of attractions).

  • From the outside, it does not mine, but it's worth to enter. The Interior of the building is large and rather nice. Three levels of exhibits. On the second floor, the works of Egon Schiele and the elements of his biography (photos among others). On the first and on the ground floor of the temporary exhibitions. The welcome is friendly. To do!

  • I have been looking forward to visiting this museum for over a year. I was not disappointed. Very impressive.
  • Great museum if you are a big fan of Egon Schiele. But if you are not, there's still somone else's works inside. It's great in general.
  • There are pros and cons to the caffee. The place is really nice in terms of its appearance meeting expectation of every hipster with lots of old battered furniture, paintings and overall artistic atmosphere. The prices however are very overpriced which would be OK if the served products would reflect the price. This however does not happen and my double the ordinary price cake was not tasty at all (felt very cheap) and so did the apple cake we ordered, which was moreover literally still frozen. On tops the toilets are too old and shabby even for hipsters. This is a regular tourist trap.
  • Unfortunately the actual museum/gallery was closed until April (!) so I'm reviewing the wonderfully mismatched cafe and museum store, which you can still buy prints of Egon Schiele's works. Very friendly staff and good prints but disappointing as it's a big draw of Cesky Krumlov
  • Nice museum in the very center of the town. Interesting the part on Egon Schiele. Exhibitions of other artists inside.
