Surprisingly, this is one of the better religious art museums in Europe. Friendly staff, plaques in English, German, and Czech. Everything very very informative! The museum doesn't just tell about the statue or painting, but also the theology behind it. Simply put and easily understood. Set in a beautiful old monastery.

First of all, the building, a Franciscan Monastery is breathtaking! We started with the church itself and was a very peaceful and oh! moment! The pieces inside will amaze you, but the architecture, always the architecture, will do an amazing job as well!

We enjoyed this visit. So much catholic history and art. 90 crowns - Fransiscan Monestary and Museum of Ecclesiastical Art. We had a guide (she didn't speak much English but was so kind and near the end she engaged a young woman who kindly translated for us).
