  • Cost 250 crowns = 10 euros (2017) internal Palace spectacular with outstanding works plans an entire room 5 x Picasso one for impressionists such as Monet Renoir Cezanne Munch, Kandinsky and many others. I would say you can't miss, maybe to be programmed on a rainy day. Caution in making your ticket when paired with other temporary exhibits costs more

  • One of the best things was being able to enter without paying and enjoy all the vastness and beauty of the Museum in silence. There was no chaos or noise and this has enhanced the beauty of the paintings and works within it! Wonderful!

  • An inspiring space and a huge collection. And a great cafe space to grab some rest with some funky young Czechs. There is real space to look at the art and the public open spaces leave lots of room for you to think your own thoughts.
  • Great collection of modern art. Big and nice building. Prices are average. If u like art, you should visit this galerie.
  • Pretty cool museum. I'm not exactly full of knowledge when it comes to art, bit they have an impressive gallery and it is MASSIVE.
  • A contemporary art gallery with lots of French impressionist paintings to more modern pieces. Ai Wei Wei's giant inflatable piece commemorating the refugee crisis was awe-inspiring!
  • Great collection of modern art. Place is very quiet
