  • Having too much time to spare and wanting to visit only one Museum, my choice fell on this section featuring the best Czech art of the 20th century are today. In addition to the Czech artists include masterpieces by Klimt, Schiele, Picasso, Matisse, a collection of Impressionist paintings and Czech and international design objects. The Palace itself is a masterpiece of functionalism. With 300 kr ticket price you can access other three museums (but I didn't).

  • A once in a lifetime experience to see Picasso, Klimt to Warhole spoiled by rude, untrained and unknowable staff. They seem intent on making you feel like a criminal at every turn, being followed around and barked at. It verged on the ridicious ( to myself and other visistors). From London, Berlin to New York, I have never had this bad experience. I've If you have a bag (and foreign) you have to have it put in a cloak room. Seems locals are immune to this law. I paid not to be treated like a criminal, nor a kid. A mass sacking is needed to turn this place around.. a pity
  • Awesome, awesome place. Spend an entire day here discovering modern art by renowned Czech and European artists, and finish it off with a coffee and snack at the café downstairs.
  • Magnificent. In additional to Muchas masterpiece 'Slav Epic' you've also got another 4floors of great art, sculpture etc etc . Spent almost 4 hours here.
  • Great gallery. 5 floors filled with art of different periods.
  • Awesome pieces from big artist like van Gogh. But also cool modern art.
