At the time I visit, the museum was during the enlargement, so I was not really discover it by the contains. But the construction, the outside was already worth the visit. It was Gorgeous, huge. And it is so near the downtown so I will say it is a must see of Prague.

This was a rubbish exhibit in a horrible building. Total waste of time and money! The so called museum had little or nothing of interest to offer to a tourist. Sorry we went!!

Turns out there are just two small exhibits in the new building while main bldg is closed. While the "Retro" exhibit is interesting, and well done, it's very limited in scope and certainly not worth the 120 Kc entry.

Set out was confusing, exhibits were really small and in some cases disjointed or confusing. Would not recommend visiting

Although we entered freely thanks to Prague Card, we did not enjoyed this museum that much. It had a Retro Fashion exhibition which was great but all the others, Noah's Ark and other from Jan Palach were really not that much fun.

During retrofitting the exhibition moved to a building next door which were very limited, poorly-trafficked, lacking in quality, and plainly speaking -- boring. We would love to visit again once the original building is opened, but definitely avoid visiting the make-shift venue again.

We wanted to visit this time around after many trips to Prague simply running out of time. Well, to our surprise during our visit in July, the main building was closed for renovations. We were disappointed, of course, but are determined to make it in when it's finished. It was always magnificent, as far as I can remember. I am... More

It was the first 'old' building we saw in prague when we arrived in wenceslas square.The view was quite astonishing and we were thrilled with it. We wanted to visit but it was closed for renovation.They said us to go to another building but we wanted the authentic one. So next time we will visit prague,we will go there!

The long boulevard from the foothill leading up the the steps of the National Museum is a long walk to enjoy. Plenty of interesting buildings and architecture lined the path, all bearing historical significance for sure. But perhaps the most significant building on Wencealas is the National Museum, storing the history of Bohemia, Prague and Czech inside its large collection.... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
