I visited here for the purpose of seeing Mucha' Slav Epic, only to find out that it is gone, out on loan to museums elsewhere. What a disappointment! Since we were already at the museum, we tried to make the best of it, and did see spend an hour wandering the cavernous building. We enjoyed a number of paintings we... More

My girlfriend and I went there during a opend-doors weekend. We were not expecting that much but I must say the museum has a quite nice small collection. It cannot be compared to Paris, London, Vienna or Berlin - or even Dresden - but we liked. We discovered Capek, few pieces by Picasso. The bad points : the building could... More

Not that some of the art isn't interesting, not much of a modern art fan, but it also seems quite typical that you can see in many other national level galleries. A bit cold and industrial inside. Wasn't that interesting after visiting the other galleries in the historical palaces. The gallery is NOT a palace despite the name. Mostly disappointing... More

So, this might be a palace but it looks like an office building. It houses the National Gallery of Modern art. Don't go expecting a palace. But if you buy the national gallery pass, make the trip across the river and check out some modern art. Note:Alfons Mucha Slav Epic has been removed for 2 years to be on display... More

It's a bit outside of downtown Praha, but it's really worth a visit if you like art. Very wide and interesting permanent collection of Czech and international 19-20-21 centuries. Many masterpieces too. 5 floors. Tiring - you need many energies. Not so many chairs and sofas. A lot to read (always English and Czech), no interactive solutions. We have learnt... More

Mucha was great, the explanation in the leaflet that you have to buy separately (apart from the already pricey ticket) greatly enhanced our understanding. One thing to improve is to sort the paintings in the leaflet by the order in which they are displayed. Looking for the right one took a significant amount of time. The art was however degraded...

Took a little bit of finding as it was our first day in the city but it was so worth it! The Mucha Slave epic is very well laid out and there was a small brochure that we bought that gave a couple of paragraphs about the background to each painting which was the right amount to take in during...

Very disappointed! The modern (19-21 century) artwork was world-class, but the layout and lack of information was frustrating. I had always wanted to see Mucha's Slavic Epic, for example, but there was no information or explanations offered for these remarkable, huge canvases. Some patrons seemed to have some sort of information, but we were unable to get any of the... More

Out of the historic center, but well worth the trip to see the impressive Slav Epic, Mucha's series of paintings devoted to the history of the Slavic people. Uber was a quick and economical way to get there from our hotel in the Jewish Quarter.

If you're a fan of modern art, cubism, dadaism this is absolutely a grat place to visit, if not so it is not so necccesary. Place is very big (your feet will hurt you), but architecture is something special.
