  • Those who decided to roll with the Prague beer routes on the way of understanding the large and small masterpieces of world art. Dedicated to ... You can wander the streets of Prague with ecstasy and admire the architectural splendor, and for those wishing to delve, so to speak, is a direct road to the National Gallery. In my opinion, very convenient, that the exhibition gallery is divided into several parts, in different parts of the city. Firstly, when looking for their location, you get to know the city. Secondly, acquaintance with each museum does not take up a whole day (such as Hermitage). Thirdly, if you bypass a day not more than two exposures, will not be in the head "and" cereals will be remembered better. But don't expect those in Prague Grand collections of paintings, which can be seen in other European capitals. In each and every City Museum for the City Castle, you can find something very interesting, like "his" masterpiece which will be remembered for the gallery. So, everything in the Museum! (especially if bad weather). Shternbergsk ...

  • You can slowly and without overloading the consider/absorb almost all of the exposition, which will not work in large galleries, which pressured an abundance of masterpieces and information. If you are going to March 4, 2018 year do not miss the exhibition of Renaissance portraits of aristocracy, are exhibited including items (clothes, accessories, presented even scents, sounds and music), which places the painting in the natural order Wednesday time.

  • It took us a while to find the entrance of the museum, which is not clearly indicated. The entrance fee is not expensive, and it is free for students (a student card or ID will be required to get the reduction). The museum has a few very nice paintings among its collection, but that's the only thing we appreciated about it. The other painting are quite mediocre, so the experience overall isn't overwhelming, as we believed it would've been instead. Museum guards follow you everywhere as if you could damage the paintings any minute now, and it is extremely unpleasant. It makes the visit stressful and you end up focusing on those weird people following you everywhere rather than on the paintings. Besides they don't want to show you that they're observing you, so they act as if everything's normal. The only reason to visit the museum are the few very beautiful painting that it offers, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you are a huge art fan.
  • The palace entrance was slightly difficult to locate, but once inside my viewing experience was 100% fantastic. There were hoards of tourists outside on the streets wandering around with no public place to just sit and take in the experience. Inside the palace is quiet, very few people there to observe the exhibits. Bonus at the end of it all is the garden behind the palace with tables beneath the trees and a goldfish pond. It was a fantastic retreat from the busy streets in Prague and a moment to reflect on what I observed during the visit. CZK500 to visit more than just a couple of exhibitions was the opportunity of a lifetime for me. These exhibitions are a central theme to a visit in Prague.
  • While the palace, gardens and artwork are all outstanding, my experience was not because of the way I look, different. Being followed very closely by a museum security guard in two different exhibits when I was the only non-Anglo in the room was the first sign of exclusivity. The first guard was so close to me I got scared when I turned away from reading the plaque. Then, I realized he was following just me so, I asked him point blank, "Why are you following me when there are so many other people around?" No reply, just a smirk and continues to follow me into the other room. Later, I move on to another floor of the museum. Another security guard does the same intimidation tactics and nearly follows me out of the museum doors! Maybe he wanted to make sure I wouldn't return and was gone for good or that my kind are not welcome to enjoy art and culture?
  • part of national museum. most of galery is old masters. several Rubins and one Rembrant
  • Excellent and not overwhelming collection. I especially liked the Cranach exhibition. Nice and friendly staff though English is not their strong suit but they make up for it with kindness.
