  • We were pleased to visit on the last day of the year. Actually a Saturday, actually lt homepage open. It was then but just closed. What a pity.

  • For DOX you must get out there the tourist heart of Prague, for us it was this not quite worth it. There was little real art, rather photo exhibitions (including about Iraq and a strange Czech who performed himself as model). Fun was the Zeppelin, but in General was quite clear to me what this museum (especially when compared to bv. The Tate Modern in London).

  • DOX requires getting out of central Prague, but it only takes about 20 minutes on the metro, and then a 2 minute walk. Definitely worth visiting: wide range of exhibitions, high quality and beautiful ...  more »

  • A contemporary art museum that is worth EVERY bit of the entry price. The exhibitions were so interesting, relevant, well-curated & well-designed. The layout of the building is a bit disorienting and the map wasn't too helpful; but it was fun to find our way through the building and discover things along the way. The permanent site artwork "Gulliver's Airship" is stunning. We sat and watched the video of the airship installation for a bit - super fascinating. The gift shop was also excellent - a great selection of art books, paper products, and fine art gifts. I will definitely be back to this museum.
  • The best contemporary art gallery in Prague. Their exhibitions don't revolve around famous names but around topics which is gr8. I love the wooden Zeppelin floating above the concrete building.
  • My wife and I were lucky enough to visit during a truly incredible exhibit they had on display. The staff was friendly and the museum is easy to navigate and even has a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. We were excited to go during this trip, but we are even more excited to return and see what new exhibit they have showing durning our next trip to Prague.
  • Great place for some nice exhibitions. Even if you're not into Art at all, just go there for the really cool airship on the top of the building. Tickets are fair and 1/2 the price for students. :)
  • One from the Top 10 Czech contemporary art galleries. However private, no other hosting much sophisticated and educational exhibitions. The curatorial program, graphic design and off-program goes together hand by hand with a great architecture, interiors and genius loci what makes DOX so impressive ....

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
