Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Good find, location is beautiful on the river but the content we found what. It has a number of show spaces. Unfortunately, not all open courtyard is beautiful and café/restaurant is pleasant to stay on the water.

  • It is a private collection, of Czechoslovakian artists avant-garde museum. For someone who likes art, they have good exhibitions.

  • The museum itself is worth a trip, perfectly combining light, shadow and scattered pieces of art work. I saw some work by munch Kupka kokoschka when i passed by, and learned some more modern Cezch art...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Interesting modern art gallery on the banks of the Vltava River and within walking distance of the Charles Bridge. Some interesting exhibitions when we were there including some works by Edvard Munch. The views of the river and islands from the various floors of the gallery are almost worth the entrance fee by themselves.
  • Great collection of 20th/21st C Czech art—lots in a small space. The cafe/restaurant is good as well. I didn't find the staff particularly unfriendly though you do get your ticket checked when entering every room (just make sure to have it ready, that's all).
  • Art work is great, but service was dismal: some of the staff in the galleries appeared unhappy to see visitors; gallery staff accused us of taking photos ( not allowed) which we were not; toilets were locked and there appeared to be confusion about providing the key! As an aside It seems a bit paradoxical that photos of pop art were not allowed when the items themselves were based on previous artists work; such as warhol's crushed coke can.
  • Chance to understand Czech modern arts. I still hope staff should be more kind and make smile. don't need to make serious face to visitors. besides I dont know why I should show my ticket to staff at every exhibition room
