Museum Kampa, Prague

3.6
#27 of 155 in Museums in Prague
At Museum Kampa, discover the paintings by abstract-art pioneer František Kupka and bronze Cubist statues by Otto Gutfreund, one of the most important Czech sculptors of the 20th century. The building, originally a medieval watermill, opens onto the whole district, thanks to its broad, glass walls and a big glass tower surrounded with exhibit halls. The museum contains the private collection of Meda Mládek, an art historian and the protector of Czechoslovak artists during the communist era. A large sculpture of a chair by Magdalena Jetelová stands outside the museum and is a prominent landmark visible from across the river. To plan Prague vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Beautiful building surrounded by a local park and Czech artist sculptures. The "Babies" sculptures are by the same artist (David Cerny) behind the rotating Kafka bust near old town. This exhibit was focusing on the Duchamp brothers and local Czech artist František Kupka.
  • Nice museum and nice bar next to the river!!! KOSOVO JE SRBIJA!!!!
  • Nice premises and interesting exhibitions from time to time. The staff is quite cold though and does not seem to be so willing to help.
  • Do not go to the restoraunt just outside the museum called Sveik. This will charge you extra for the pretzels that you will find on your table and they will not warn that you have to pay foe them
  • The system to sell tickets is absolutely stupid. They sell the tickets at the far end of the patio when they should sell them at the door. That way they could hire one person to do the work instead of two. However, this lack of user-friendliness is seen often in museums here.

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.
