Mucha Museum, Prague

3.4
Packed with paintings, posters, and decorative panels, Mucha Museum offers a look at the creative universe of one of the biggest names in the Art Nouveau movement. The relatively small museum holds a large collection of Alfons Mucha's finest works, as well as a selection of his personal photographs. Mucha enthralled the art world of the early 20th century with his paintings of Slavic maidens adorned with garlands and linden boughs. Although the museum displays many of these images, its prized possession remains an original 1894 poster of actress Sarah Bernhardt, which elevated Mucha to international stardom. The on-site shop offers gifts with various Mucha motifs.

  • We were there three. Three girls aged between 18-19 and we were not impressed. We had to pay reduction still 160,000 CZK (€6.50). What is pretty much that the whole exhibition consists of two rooms. All images look pretty much alike, and photograph may not be even. We were so after 10 minutes already through the €6.50 as a discount were really much much. Our teacher (32) found it also not so super, even though she is a big fan of Mucha. She was also disappointed that the exhibition is so expensive for the little pictures. At checkout, there were also difficulties because the lady there had no change. So we stood there again 5-10 minutes. Almost as long as we have then needed for the entire Museum. Summary: Nothing for people are not huge fans of Mucha. And have little money for the ticket.

  • Small museum, but very nice organized. You can learn about Czeck Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha's life and work. I especially enjoyed Princess Hyacinth! The shop sells lots of posters and reproduct...  more »

  • Really interesting museum, but I found the no photography a bit annoying, I guess they want to sell you the prints in the gift shop, but I really was only interested in the sketches. I would of happily paid a small premium to take none flash photos. The video was interesting and gave a lot of context, and it's 30mins long, so get comfy.
  • Great small museum with lots to see and to read. Do not miss the video presentation. In English and with tons of interesting information. Pictures are not allowed and in a way it is a good thing because it enhances the viewing experience.
  • Absolutely Beautiful. The exhibition is great but the lighting needs some attention. In the final room, the spots were too bright and aimed so badly it was hard to see anything due to reflections in the glass and one bigger canvas was completely ruined due to this.
  • Very nice small museum, a must see if you like Mucha and Art Nouveau. There is a quite long video explaining Mucha's life at the end of the visit. The museum's shop offers a lot of different items with Mucha's iconic artworks, including big posters at a very reasonable price.
  • A must see for any fan of Art Nouveau. Its a tiny museum, but very cool pieces from his Parisian period
