  • I do recommend this place. Find it. It can be visited without going to the expositions. The personnel was nice. I'd like to see a wider selection of herbal teas, but the current drinks' menu is fine.
  • Staff seems friendly and building itself is nicely designed. I was a bit disappointed with the exception, though. The theme is death, a very touching subject. One particular piece really touched me and one or two other made me raise an eyebrow, but the rest was just one giant Ed Hardy T-shirt. Maybe the next exhibition will be better.
  • Second time in Prague, second time I couldn't pass DOX. The architecture of the building itself, with the added beauty of a zeppelin on its roof, alone makes you crave for modern art. It's full of nooks and crannies, and that certainly influences how the art is presented and perceived. We were a bit unlucky, arriving at a day when there was only one of three exhibitions available, due to rebuilding of the other two, but also this time their exhibition(s) stilled my hunger for a trip into other worlds of thinking. If you enjoy modern or post-modern art in general, and enjoy a local touch and influence, DOX will probably be the right place for you, often including art and artists from Czech and surrounding countries. Don't miss out on enjoying a coffee on the terrace, sitting on oversized plastic sofas and looking at a sneaker Jesus on the wall.
  • One of my favorite places in Prague. Definitely one of the three best art contemporary art centers I’ve ever seen. The architecture the design the quality of the shows. Do not miss it. Worth the walk across an otherwise bland industrial neighborhood.
  • I highly recommend. A great exhibition space with artistic taste and vision. I found the current exhibitions really captivating. It's a place really worth seeing.
