Prague is a city of history and art, so it should come as no surprise that it is packed full of museums. Here are just a few…
Dedicated to Prague’s most famous denizen, whose surreal tales were no doubt influenced by the city’s winding Old Town streets and Austro-Hungarian bureaucracy.
A museum dedicated to Alphonse Mucha, a painter and decorative artist whose style is the very embodiment of Art Noveau.
Has a number of different branches the largest of which are:
• Veletržní Palace for Modern Contemporary Art : With four stories of paintings, sculpture, furniture and design, there’s enough to keep you busy for more than one rainy day. Features both permanent and rotating exhibitions.
• Sternberg Palace (Šternberský palác): This is another branch of the National Gallery, featuring European art from the Classical Era to the close of the Baroque.
One of Prague’s newest, an independent centre for contemporary art with a fine café upstairs.
