I like the place. On the river bank with good exhibitions. The park from one side with Cerny baby's and the river from the other side with the view to the city will make you feel... read more

If you enjoy weak pieces and tiny crammed rooms with rude staff following you around, then you will love this museum.

Coming for an art trip we had high expectations as the Czech standard for modern art is typically very high. However the gallery was on the whole disappointing, some of our group enjoyed the exhibitions, in particular the sculpture, however the staff completely undermined the artistic integrity of the gallery. As Brits we have a certain understanding of manners and... More

I like the place. On the river bank with good exhibitions. The park from one side with Cerny baby's and the river from the other side with the view to the city will make you feel part of this great city.

This was an unplanned visit, we saw the posters for Toyen exhibition all over Prague, so decided to see it for ourselves. Our ticket was for Toyen as well as for Frantisek Kupka & Otto Gutfreund. I was familiar with Toyen's name before but not her work and had really no notion of Kupka and Gutfreund, except that our group... More

I was bored the whole time, with so much art in the streets of Prague, thaere was nothing to see. We went there hoping to see statues and saw only paintings and drawings. which were not so good.

Museum Kampa offers a great vantage point to take pictures of Prague from the west bank of Charles Bridge, and that's it! You don't need to buy a ticket to go inside to get the views so don't waste your money. The staff (a male senior) was extremely rude - God forbid don't ever check your smartphones inside the galleries... More

Loved this museum/gallery. Really interesting and thoughtful. Smallish and good for an hour or so with free sculptures to see which are strange and weird. small bookshop and some nice art inside. Worth a while to get away from the madness of Charles bridge!!

Very close to Charle's Bridge, this is a fairly understated modern art museum from what we observed in the 'temporary exhibit.' We asked for senior tickets to both perm & temp but the ticket desk moved like molasses with a god zillion choices all explained in detail to each patron. Lunch at the attached restaurant was the best part, right... More

The sculptures outside are unusual and very interesting, but would've like more of that inside the building. The exhibits were a curious way to kill a bit of time, but we could've spent it doing other things.

From the courtyard, this museum appears to be very small, but it has numerous floors and a lot to offer. I really didn't think I would be interested in the artists featured, but I soon became fascinated by the exhibits. My one regret is that I could not photograph a poem that was inscribed on the wall, as photos were... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
