2.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Learn about the Czech Republic's culture and natural environment by exploring the scientific and historical collections of Národní muzeum. Josef Schultz designed this monumental Neo-Renaissance building in the 19th century as a symbol of the Czech National Revival. The grand entrance hall features a wide staircase, intricate stonework, and ceiling frescos. The museum houses almost 14 million items relating to mineralogy, paleontology, mycology, botany, entomology, zoology, anthropology, the arts, and archeology. Look for a 12th-century silver tiara in the archeology department and a gilded silver rhyton in the prehistory area. The theater department includes costume designs, music, memorabilia, and marionettes from the Czech puppet theater.

  • I have visited the noha's arch. It is clean museum located at the center of the city. It has great collection of items. Worth to go with family.
  • Main building of the Czech National Museum is closed for thorough renovation thus a small selection of mostly animals is available at the adjacent building. The front office stuff desperately needs training in customer communication/service, unless their performance purposefully provides foreign visitors with an experience of communistic Czechoslovakia of early-eighties.
  • A gigantic building situated in the center of business and cultural hub of Prague. The statue of horse in front of the building doubles its beauty. A lot of food shops and shopping shops are situated around this building.
  • That is a real beautiful place (not really), but I recommend u guys to go there, cause there are many culture facts we can learn in there, but unluckily the main building is closed.
  • Main old museum building is closed. But the temporary exhibition is still interesting
