When visiing a major city, I look forward to viewing their 19th century European Art, especially their Van Goghs. After making a somewhat difficult trip to the Veletržní Palác, I found out that the museum's Van Gogh, and all their non-Czech art, were removed. Major...More

The museum is nice, I even like the contrast between grey Communist era exterior and modern interior. However, it is not ok to display names of artists everywhere, even in front of the museum, just to let you know that these parts are ‘closed’ after...More

We caught the tube out to The National Gallery to view the exhibition of Mucha’s Slavic Epic paintings, all 20 of them. Took him over 18 years to complete them. It was a Contemporary Art Gallery built in the late 1920’s, quite a cool place...More

Some interesting and well-curated displays at this Modern art gallery. Saw an exhibition on Munch but the rest of the gallery was a nice surprise. Many artists I knew and lots I didn't especially as many were Polish so was an excellent cross-section.

I was there to see Van Gogh and Picasso, but guess what... first and third floor (where you can find international art) are closed. Even part of the second floor is closed, but you have to pay full price. It's like going to The Louvre...More

I went because there was a very interesting special exhibit, wanderlust. Lots of colors and large scale. This was very nice but just one room. I walked the rest of the gallery and everything was nicely displayed. There were a lot of closed areas as...More

Strongly recommended by our guide book, partly for the 1928 building which earned praise from Le Corbusier, we made the journey out to the Trade fair Palace (Veletrzní palác) only to be told only none of the foreign art (on floors 1 and 3) was...More

Much of the museum was closed while we were there, but we still enjoyed the parts that were open. There was a really great modern exhibit, which we loved.

The National Gallery is called Veletrzni Palac. It is definitely my favourite in Prague. It is home to some amazing paintings of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. I only found one Van Gogh "Green Corn". Lots of Gauguin... More
