The old building under reconstruction during our visit (bad timing for us).However, we enjoyed exhibitions in the new building even more. Well-prepared, interesting, interactive, suitable even for children and combined with willing staff = time just flies by :-) Can recommend.

The National Museum was being renovated during my visit, and is not due to open for some time. It is an impressive building and you can't miss it, as it's that large.

The museum had two exhibits, one of Noah’s Ark with animals that had been preserved with taxidermy. I liked that. The other exhibit, about low light, was less interesting to me. I expected more from a national museum. By chance we were there on “Children’s...More

Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square
represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of
the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the
square watches over your spending spree in countless
shops and retail stores lining the entire square,
which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping
street. When tired or broke, you can explore the
city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town

We were told it will reopen in about 2 years and probably more, because "these re-modelings are never finished on time" according to a local.
