Prague is a city of history and art, so it should come as no surprise that it is packed full of museums. Here are just a few…

Mucha Museum:

A museum dedicated to Alphonse Mucha, a painter and decorative artist whose style is the very embodiment of Art Noveau.

Kafka Museum:

Dedicated to Prague’s most famous denizen, whose surreal tales were no doubt influenced by the city’s winding Old Town streets and Austro-Hungarian bureaucracy.

The National Gallery:

Has a number of different branches the largest of which are:

Veletržní Palace for Modern & Contemporary Art: With four stories of paintings, sculpture, furniture and design, there’s enough to keep you busy for more than one rainy day. Features both permanent and rotating exhibitions.

Sternberg Palace (Šternberský palác): This is another branch of the National Gallery, featuring European art from the Classical Era to the close of the Baroque.

Dox Gallery:

Just opened in 2008, an independent centre for contemporary art with a fine café upstairs.

Loreta Prague:

Be enchanted by works of art in what used to be a Baroque pilgrimage site.

Museum Of Communism:

An info-packed time warp. Make sure to grab a poster!

Strahov Monastery (Strahovský Klášter):

Swoon over this ornate library and grab an excellent micro-brew after!

Museum Of Music:

For music lovers and musicians.

Betramka Mozart Museum:

A summer villa where Mozart spent time composing. Summer concerts held in the garden.
