The Mucha Museum covers the life and work of Alphonse Mucha, a Czech artist who made his name in Paris but spent the latter part of his life working in the then newly formed Czechoslovakia. Mucha became a well known artist in Paris after designing Art Nouveau posters for Sarah Bernhardt.

The museum covers all aspects of Mucha's life and work and also gives a very revealing video presentation (in English) every half an hour. I would recommend watching the video before you begin exploring the museum. I only saw it afterwards and it was so interesting I wanted to go back and see everything again! Mucha apparently had strong links with the Freemasons though the video didn't mention this it all (i think) while the museum covered it in one small exhibit.

The museum is open daily from 10am to 6pm and it costs 120 Koruny.
