Museum Kampa, Prague

(220+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum
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.

  • 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.
