  • Always works, very little exposed. But we know the potential wealth of this museum visited in the past. A few exciting elements from the beginning of the XX th century. I put 2 * pending better

  • Family decision is 3 stars although personally I'd give it a 2. Only one photo exhibit available as museum is being restored. This one exhibit was very interesting and worth looking at if you enjoy photography. My own personal experience was marred by an EXTREMELY obnoxious staff member who mistakenly thought I was leaning on a glass topped exhibit. He made a big scene and made me very angry and embarrassed, especially as I hadn't actually done anything wrong. On the whole I have found all museum and exhibition staff unfriendly and grumpy.
  • Museum was good. Something small for what I expected as well as the exhibitions. Overall is good to see if there is an exhibition you would like to attend. Building is really nice and deserves a trip to see inside.
  • Beautiful, recently renovated interiors host a range of interesting exhibitions (you can typically choose from 3-4 of them at any point in time). The building itself is an exhibit, too - the decorations, inside paintings and plastics, as well as colored window mosaics will surely catch your eye and make for an appealing artistic experience. The only (occasional) drawback are elderly ladies serving as exhibition custods, who do not hesitate to chit-chat and criticize any tiny "misdeed" of the visitors, be it a real or a truly marginal one. It happens only time to time - still, the spirit of the communist era is, unfortunately, still present here in this regard.
  • Interesting exibition of Jan Koudelka and his photographs. Especially the part called Gypsies. Definitely just see.
  • Definitively the worst museum I've ever been to. It's a beautiful building (and that's why I didn't rate it one star), but they have no permanent exhibition, the temporary ones are poorly curated and not exactly high level art, there was nearly nothing of decorative arts or design, and the guards don't speak A WORD of english - they don't even try. To go from one room to another you have to try opening closed doors (some of them are closed) creating completely unecessary noises, in order to enter each exhibition you have to go to the guard that will scribble a letter on your ticket (you obviously don't know what it stands for or what it's for) and after three minor exhibitions it was over. And on top, even as a student, I payed 180 krones. I absolutely love museums, so it hurts me a lot to have to say that the best thing in this museum is its restaurant.
