Excellent museum. We liked the Gothic exhibit and being able to look at the palace. We saw P P Rubens and several other famous artists. Nicely done exhibit.

It's tricky to find, but a must see for any enthusiast of European art. Even when you find the building (off a side lane near the castle entrance) you may miss the ground floor galleries, through a courtyard in the back. Don't be put off by the lack of crowds- the collection here is first-rate, and expansive. German, Dutch, Italian etc masterpieces from the 13th to 17th centuries. A pleasant surprise, and a nice quit break from the castle crowds. Strange that such a remarkable display is not more popular, but hey, you can take your time and browse at your leisure. Highly recommended for those so inclined.
Hint: My map list two places called Sternberg Palace. You want to go right up the hill to the castle.

I don't know why this museum is so well rated. I read about it in my guidebook, which raved about it, went to see it and was pretty much let down. The advertised Chinese cabinet is actually smaller than my kitchen and so modest that it's impossible to tell why its Chinese. Yes, there are one or two nice paintings, Rubens is Rubens, but if you want my advice- visit the nearby Loreta instead or just sit down in a nearby cafe with panorama to the city. If you have been to Louvre or British Museum or anywhere in Italy, you have seen it all, save your 150 crowns.

We enjoyed our time. Interesting art and some nice painted ceilings. As many have commented the staff are unique. One man in particular had us really smiling as he literally marched from corner to corner of each room like some frustrated palace guard. They really should lighten up. The art is no more valuable than in other galleries where they left you in peace.

We found this the perfect antidote to the frantic crowds in the Castle and on the Charles Bridge. The ticket gets one access to 5 places as well as Sternberg.- Veletrzni Palace ( The new gallery of modern art ) Schwarzenberg Palace, Convent of St Agnes, Kinsky Palace and Salm Palace. We did Sternberg first and loved it. Coats and backpacks must be left in the cloakroom. You can take photos and we did. We finished with excellent coffee and cake in their good value cafe. We then went over the road to the Shwarzenberg. The building is amazing inside and out - but the collection not quite so interesting. I wanted to see Czech Art from about 1800 to 1940 but could not find it. We suspected that the new massive gallery of modern art which is miles out if town is all too modern for my taste and we were too tired to go all that way
