Convent of St. Agnes, Prague
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
At Convent of St. Agnes, trace the development of Czech art, starting with mid-14th-century panel paintings and sculptures, then moving on to 15th- and the early-16th-century oil paintings executed in the International style. The authentic environment of a Gothic convent is the backdrop for an exhibit of medieval and early Renaissance art depicting mostly religious subjects. A 13th-century princess who opted for a life of charity and piety over a life of luxury and comfort founded the convent and became its first abbess. The convent is also renowned as being haunted by the ghost of the Unhappy Nun.

  • Apart from priceless collection of medieval arts (which is part of the National Gallery), you can find a spacious art studio for kids. I have a 2year old, and she already enjoyed stamping, drawing, pr...  more »
  • The convent was restored whole and part of it was transformed into a Museum of sacred art, with an excellent collection of 15th and 16th century paintings. It's not a must, but worth visiting if you have more time in Prague.

  • I would recommend this place for people who have more than one week in Prague, or that aren't there for the first time. The czech capital has many other more interesting places to visit.

  • One of the best exhibitions in Prague. Art of the Middle Ages in the beautiful interiors of the former monastery. Ticket prices are not high.
  • Very well preserved. Some of the oldest rooms are free to visit. The museum has a major collection of medieval art - if you're keen on it it is definitely worth visiting.
  • inexpensive little museum filled with art. The pieces aren't overly interesting unless you are especially interested in Medieval art.
  • Lovely and unique museum
  • Medieval art at its best
