History Museum
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.

  • This one is a bit away from the tourist area. A very old monastery with not a lot of flash, so it is a nice break for appreciation of architecture. The gardens hold modern art exhibits.  more »

  • 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
