Specialty Museum
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.

  • Only the new building is open at present as the old building is being renovated, but two very interesting exhibits and easily two or three hours worth.
  • 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.
  • One of the best place in Prague. You will be in love immediately. Love that place
  • Czech national museum! Must visit if you're interested in history.
  • It is ok. The main building is under construction work.
