Part of the gallery is closed including the so called foreign art. However, this didn't affect my enjoyment at all. The modern Czech art on the second floor is fascinating. I'd not heard of almost all of the artists, however, I think they would be...More

The display of photos for the 1968 invasion included a lot of war like noises creating a cacophony in an otherwise quiet space. The photos spoke for themselves. Most of the floors were vacant and there was no reduction in price. The other displays by...More

When visiing a major city, I look forward to viewing their 19th century European Art, especially their Van Goghs. After making a somewhat difficult trip to the Veletržní Palác, I found out that the museum's Van Gogh, and all their non-Czech art, were removed. Major...More

The museum is nice, I even like the contrast between grey Communist era exterior and modern interior. However, it is not ok to display names of artists everywhere, even in front of the museum, just to let you know that these parts are ‘closed’ after...More

Some interesting and well-curated displays at this Modern art gallery. Saw an exhibition on Munch but the rest of the gallery was a nice surprise. Many artists I knew and lots I didn't especially as many were Polish so was an excellent cross-section.

I was there to see Van Gogh and Picasso, but guess what... first and third floor (where you can find international art) are closed. Even part of the second floor is closed, but you have to pay full price. It's like going to The Louvre...More

The National Gallery is called Veletrzni Palac. It is definitely my favourite in Prague. It is home to some amazing paintings of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. I only found one Van Gogh "Green Corn". Lots of Gauguin... More
