Prague has a plethora of museums and galleries to visit. Whether you are into modern and contemporary art, or you stick to the old time masters, Prague’s National Gallery has you covered with a wide range of international and Czech art featured in several palaces, monasteries and buildings throughout Prague. The same goes for the National Museum in Prague, a massive collection in over ten buildings throughout Prague and the Czech Republic that is comprised of elements of botany, entomology, zoology, anthropology, archeology, mycology, paleontology, and mineralogy. The City Gallery Prague, second only to the National Gallery boasts an amazing collection of Czech art from the 19th and 20th centuries that is all showcased in gorgeous palaces, villas and Gothic houses.
