Visit the National Museum

29.05.2013 | National Museum is the largest museum institution in the Czech Republic! The National Museum holds more than twenty million items in its collections, covering the areas of natural and human history, mineralogy, geology, palaeontology, zoology, and other scientific fields, presented to visitors in fourteen buildings both within and outside Prague. The National Museum is not just one building!

Its main building is currently closed for renovation, but this gives you added impetus to become acquainted with other buildings of the National Museum system in and outside Prague.

Prague´s National museum buildings include the Czech Museum of Music in the former Baroque church of St. Mary Magdalene in Prague's Lesser Town, the Ethnographic Museum (the 'Musaion') where you can learn about Czech traditions and customs, the National Memorial on the Vítkov Hill, the Náprstek Museum of Asian, African, and American Cultures with its scent of faraway places and many others. Visiting National museum buildings outside Prague brings you the best opportunity to become familiar with Czech countryside.
