  • One of the main current exhibitions had just closed prior to visit, but we weren't advised on this when we bought (full price tickets) Think we were just unlucky, rest of displays were...  more »
  • Only the building itself is a big piece of contemporary art. We really enjoyed our visit there. The staff was polite and nice (which doesn't seem automation in Czech). Reasonable ticket prices. I think i got entertainment more than I paid for. Very good experience.
  • You can loose yourself a whole day in this museum, and yet you won't see everything! The spot is really unusual, charming, the staff is friendly. I recommend planning an entire day inside to enjoy it completely.
  • The place itself is nice, with thought provoking exhibitions and eye-opening installations, which are worth 5 stars for sure. But the staff are far from satisfying. They closed the card payment option at 17:55 at the souvenir shop, which disposes me of the chance to buy a post card. They (also other touristic spots in Prague) NEVER greet you with smiles m.
  • An interesting art centre on the edge of the Prague city which offers a small glimpse of local modern art. There are a limited number of displays and the curation is a little chaotic - not bad, but a little difficult to find a theme or pattern. Perhaps that is the intent? The Gulliver installation is excellent and worth the visit. Very pleasant staff and a surprisingly good coffee in the little cafe on leave three.
  • Beautiful. Very good exhibition, great building. Really well done, bit of a maze so you'll have to discover all rooms. Fantastic lecture and presentation zeppelin on the roof (not accessible for wheelchairs this one). Not one of the Prague tourist traps, very much worth a visit. Best museum I visited so far in Prague.
