  • I love this place! Regardless of the fact that this enormous museum is located outside the city centre, it is a treasure cove. The art is modern and contemporary. I have been here many times and I sti...  more »
  • A great building is worth without the exhibition. Who can appreciate architecture, will feel at home here. Also, the Cafe and the shop worth a stay. All in all a good thing, even if the current exhibition should not like. Absolutely worth a visit, not only for art fans.

  • The exhibitions when I went were very creepy and graphic. Lots of skin and shocking art with graphic concepts. It was an interesting experience but not recommended for children. The design and book st...  more »

  • If you want to be smart and cool and learn things, expos at the DOX Centre are one way to achieve that. If you like design and stuff, you’ll like it here. It’s a building filled with contemporary design. Architecture, art, typography... Everything is quite good-looking here. Also a great place for some “hipstering” — enjoy a nice cup of coffee with a terrace view on the large wooden airship.
  • Quite an impressive space for art exhibitions, talks, coffee, and even kids' parties. Modern interior supports the contemporary art on display really well. The space can feel like a maze if you don't pay attention to the floor plan as there are many levels connected by staircases and ramps. The roof is a must see with the steel and wood frame airship as its centrepiece.
  • Contemporary art museum of Prague. Nice building but in my opinion lack of fine art and contemporary trends... It needs some life
  • I work in contemporary art, so was fascinated to see Prague had a contemporary art centre... and I had to visit!! It exceeded my expectations. Ascinating exhibitions on timely topics - the conflict in Iraq; effects of social media on self-image; and more. Also an amazing shop with a wide selection of books, decorative arts / houseware, children's toys, jewelry, etc. When I can re-visit Prague, I'll re-visit DOX!
  • Very interesting place, must visit. Quite weird exhibitions. Not good for children, may cause trauma. Very good with a guide.
