Czech + Intl.19th Century Art Nouveau, Symbolism + Abstract + 20th Century Modern Art
Stand by for a surprise! Veletržní Paláce building is in 1930's style and is like being in a huge ocean cruise ship! A chance to enjoy not only Czech artists but also famous masters like Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso etc. without all the crowds in many overheated and over-populated European Museums! Having studied Art History for 4 years and been to most major museums in the world I was surprised and shocked to see such a wide and varied quality collection here with so few people.
The spacious layout on each floor is rarely crowded and this Art Museum has to be one of the least known in the world considering the richness of its Czech and International collections! I want to give you a brief overview of the main collections and floors and we can always return to your favourites sections or masters! Photos are allowed without flash.
There is an excellent cafe where we can have a break or enjoy a snack or drink at the end before leaving. Also a nice book shop.
A short tram ride by the river to the Veletržní paláce - the home of the Modern Section of the National Gallery.
After a tour of the 2 main floors we can have a review and a break in the excellent Mama Coffee Shop and I can help you plan the rest of your day.
I can accompany you back to the centre or you can stay longer for another look at the exhibits.
