“More than a "religious" museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is more than a religious museum, although it does contain a collection of chalices, monstrances, and vestments. It's full of art work and archeological artifacts. If you're there on a hot day, you'll appreciate the air conditioning. Don't overlook the beautiful old wood floors as you're looking up at the ceilings. Other reviewers are correct, ladies who are posted throughout the museum do not speak English but try their best to be friendly and helpful. Make sure you get an audio guide when you purchase your tickets.

“Worth seeing with combo ticket”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Not as impressive as similar museums in other places, but still worth a look if you are trekking to the Cathedral anyway, and are visiting the Museum of Modern Art as then you can buy a combo ticket. The staff are particularly friendly and helpful here, given that none of them spoke English!

“I didn't think I'd like this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

The building itself is worth the visit, and the women who "guard" it are so proud of it. It really is worth the time. Many interesting painting (mostly Italian late Mannerist). But notice the floors, ceilings, doors. No English spoken, but it doesn't matter because there's a genuine will to communicate and great pride in this treasure.

“Excellent - worth visiting Olomouc just for this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

I found this museum totally fascinating - a superb collection of religious art. The simple but beautiful wooden statues were a highlight, as were the flamboyant, jewel encrusted monstrances. Plus there was a good sequence of Old Master paintings. You could easily spend a couple of hours here without getting bored.

I also enjoyed the antics of the eccentric attendants - they are obsessed with making sure you walk round the exhibits in the correct order, and you get a stern ticking off if you deviate from the plan!

Worth getting the audio guide (small supplement).
