"Czech national museum" National Museum Tip by Raimix

National Museum, Prague: 66 reviews and 113 photos


Czech national museum is the biggest one in Czech Republic. Exhibition is associated with Czech history, culture, nature. The museum was founded in 1818, but it still hasn’t had one big place to put all exhibits together. The building was finished to construct in 1891, neo – Renaissance style, architect was Josef Schulz (the one who designed National theater and Rudolfinum).

20th century was sad for museum. At first, it was damaged by two bombs during World War II, later same happened in time of intervention of Warsaw Pact forces (communistic block) in 1968.

Building is centralized and looks really nicely from places around (eg. Wesceslas square), especially cupola part, under it pantheon of famous Czech is created, consisting sculptures to honour them.

Address: Narodni Muzeum.
Directions: Wenceslas Square.
