    Really cool exhibition on data here. Some other bizarre pieces in the other part of the gallery that were very interesting. The big wooden Zeppelin was amazing and you can walk inside of it. Impressiv...  more »

    Cheap if one has a student card. Urban and modern environment. Interesting exhibitions. Loved the café with terrace. Especially good was ice-coffee & the gluten-free carrot cake. Glad to get away from turistmeckat a bit. Highly recommend.

    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.

    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 ....

    Great art gallery. An amazing experience and not too expensive: prices are fair and excellent discount is available for (international) students. A milestone for those who visit the city. Quite distant from downtown, but easy to reach by metro.

    One of the more interesting buildings in Prague, this art gallery hosts various exhibitions. I enjoyed the one about Big Data - good use of space. The gallery also has an art library and a bookstore worth exploring.

    Super cool art gallery with an awesome exhibition on data. Great even if you don't think you're much of an art fan. Only downside was that is it was a bit hot.

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.
