Museum Kampa, Prague

3.6
#26 of 86 in Museums in Prague
Art Museum Specialty 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.

  • 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.
  • It's a really great modern art museum, enjoyed the visit very much. Also the babies statues outside are cool!
  • Great place for a rainy day in Prague. Bring some time to really enjoy it. The surrounding area is also very nice.
  • Good musuem, not so big, with interesting artworks from czech modern and contemporary artists, there is an amazing terrace where you can appreciate the landscape.
  • 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!

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.
