This is an impressive place, and it is only one of 3 or 4 buildings that make up the National Gallery of the Czech Republic. We expected to spend a couple of hours and ended up spending five. First, it is immense, and the history of the building is very interesting. There is currently a temporary exhibit on a massive fire that destroyed in the building (in the 1970s, if I remember currently), but it was successfully rejuvenated as part of the National Gallery. We chose to spend some time there to learn more about Czech art, and it certainly has lots of that, but it also has an impressive French collection from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as one section on international art. The other temporary exhibit is devoted to Mucha's Slav Epic, with 20 enormous canvasses. Well worth the visit.
