Museum Kampa, Prague

(3.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since recently took the habit of frequenting museums of contemporary art in all the cities where we are (and where they are), decided to visit Prague and Kampa. Near Charles Bridge Museum, very laid-back and cozy Park around. The exposition of paintings, feels like-not enough installations and sculptures. Price, considering the small exposure, it seems overpriced. However, all lovers of contemporary art, is recommended.

  • We approached for installations in the Park, who already knew each other, and we took the opportunity to visit the Museum. We found interesting and unknown works of Czech landscape. The appearance of the building, the sculpture garden and the Park are worth alone a ride to Kampa, but if you have some free time, the Museum is a good choice. Moreover, it is not very popular, so quiet.

  • Located in Kampa Island, South of the Charles Bridge, the Castle side. Entrance fee: CZK 200 (7.40 euros) which become 100 (3.70 euros) for over sixty and other categories. Prices and exchange for February 2017. At the entrance to the indoor section (a little hard to find: the sign indicates the entrance to the restaurant. Enter the door the restaurant is on the left, the entrance of the Museum in front of you) a real gem, very interesting. Retraces the artistic adventure of Czech painters and sculptors during the Communist era. Extraordinarily surprising, I repeat: very interesting. There are works by Czech artists from 50 to 80 years of the 20th century. Salt with the exhibited works perfectly and descriptive panels clear and instructive, in Czech and English. Also hosts temporary exhibitions, when we went there was a (very interesting ... I know, are repetitive) on Frantisek Kupka (1871-1957) main exponent of abstract art and the orphism Czechs. Wonderful works and definitely ahead of its time. In the yard in the ticket office/library and Museum entrance are exhibited some sculptures. Tour duration: 2 or 3 hours. Opening hours: 10-18 but I'm not sure

  • Nice museum, not too big. With a stroller it's a bit of a challenge as the elevator only works with a key, so you will need to ask and then wait for someone to come.
  • Beautiful modern art museum. I recommend getting the full ticket (120 CZ for students) as they entire museum is beautiful. It also offers a great view of the river from the rooftop which is worth seeing!
  • A very old mill transformed in private contemporary art museum. Great view over the river. The Czech glass artist exhibition we visited was very good.
  • Great art. Strange service though. Not unfriendly, however, we had to show our ticket on every floor and receive a thorough instruction of all we were not allowed to. If it was part of the installation, they surely succeeded in making us feel back in the old Eastern Europe where you would trust nobody. A significant contrast to the service we have experienced in the rest of the city.
  • Must visit!! Kampa was a great introduction to East European contemporary art.
