Very nice place. Small but good exhibition. Variety of art pices. Good detailed descriptions. The museum has a gift shop with posters, calendars, bookmarks, postcards, even silk scarfs. No AC inside the museum.

Based on Rick Steve's suggestion, we went to this museum. It was a highlight of my Prague trip. Of course, I am an art lover. So if you don't love art or appreciate fantastic graphic design and illustration, you may not have as favorable an experience. Definitely watch the movie about Mucha. His craftsmanship is amazing. I appreciate him much more as a result of seeing the museum. I agree with other reviewers, if you want to see the Slav Epic, make sure you get to the National Gallery to see this work that took 18+ years of his life to create.

Don't get me wrong, his works are amazing. The short film was informative as well. I went by Rick Steve's book on my trip and I was expecting to pay 160 to get in. It was actually 240, and to me not worth the price of admission. I would rather have seen his Slav Epic. I did pick up some gifts from the museum gift shop that my friends and family loved. His works definitely are a must see.

This museum does a good job of showing the various art that Mucha produced. The film is especially interesting. It got us escited to see the Slav Epic which was amazing.

There is certainly a lot of Mucha in Prague including his famous stained glass in St. Vitus Cathedral, the magnificent foyer of Municipal Hall, and the four large paintings in Smetana Hall depicting the Performing Arts: dance, music, poetry reading, and drama. His Art Nouveau style is crowd-pleasing, instantly likable. The question is, do you want to see more?

A quick trip to this "boutique museum" will help you decide. English-speakers can enjoy the 30-minute documentary looping on the quarter-hour. This would be the ideal starting point. Then work your way back to the first of 3 small rooms chronicling his development as an artist. The highlights here are his Sarah Bernhardt posters. You certainly don't need the guide that the museum sells (rather outrageous that there is a surcharge for this) - there's not much to see.

Only the video documentary references Mucha's life work, the "Slav Epic." Now the Slav Epic is located at the National Gallery across the river, a few tram stops from the Jewish quarter - it is a real detour from the typical tourist itinerary. It is definitely worth the trip if you have more than 3 days in Prague and have become comfortable riding the metro and trams. Let a quick pass here help you decide if you want to make that detour. You will only need an hour to do everything here, including the video documentary.

Similarly, this trip could help you decide if you want to take a guided tour of Municipal Hall (or vice versa), as the Mucha-designed foyer is the highlight of that tour.

But clearly this museum is not a top-tiered destination and should only be considered a Day 3 or rainy day activity. It's a lovely way to spend an hour, though.
