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

Main building is currently shut. 3 very boring museums, 2 of which dead animals and one very short one about the celts. Nothing about the history of the Czech Republic - very dissapointing. My local town museum is better. Avoid.

We walked past this for 5 days and couldn't even tell where the entrance was. Most museums have signs and banners promoting their exhibits. This one didn't. At least we didn't see any. Can't tell you anything about it.

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.
