Museums and Galeries in Prague

Prague has a lot to offer in terms of art and culture. The National Museum (Narodni Muzeum) owns the largest art collection in the Czech Republic, the Museum of Communism gives an eerie insight in everyday life during Communist days and the Fashion Museum is a treat for both mothers and daughters.

A museum visit may not be the first thing that springs to mind for a trip to Prague but an hour or so in a museum is certainly worth considering. Spend a half day marveling at the art collection in Prague Castle, five minutes in admiring a flea playing the violin in the Miniature Museum or as long as it takes watching model trains chucking their way through meadows and stopping at miniature station in the Train Kingdom.

Most museums are closed on Mondays and on other days they open from 10.00 to 18.00. The National Museum is also open on Monday and every first Monday of the month entry is free.
