  • Right near the Castle, this museum is unfortunately little visited. Definitely needs some improvements (such as the staff didn't speak English for the most part), but both the building in which it is situated is very nice and works in it preserved are of great value.

  • 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.

  • The Rueben exhibit was awesome but very very crowded. They have a nice Rembrandt too. The building itself is great to look at as well, such cool architecture.
  • The Sternberg Palace, an artistic beauty itself, exhibits some 3500 years worth of art covering sculptures from Antiquity, religious iconography from the Middle Ages, splendid paintings from the Renaissance, and masterful illustrations from the Baroque. Our visit at the Sternberg Palace was truly inspirational!
  • An interesting collection of statuary and imagery. Only a few of the big names, a Rembrandt and a few Rubens, but some great examples of 17c Dutch school painters and some well restored religious iconography rescued from some of the numerous churches in Prague. The display of historical Czech family portraits is well worth viewing.
  • National gallery exhibition. One Rembrandt, some Rubens etc. Nice and unique palace but the organization of the exhibition was not very smart...
  • 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.
