An excellent overview of the Czech nation, people, and the land they inhabit, in an iconic building overlooking Wenceslas Square.
The country's foremost historic, ethnographic, and natural history collection.
At the top of Wenceslas Square is one of Prague's most imposing buildings, the National Museum, designed by Josef Schulz, architect of the National Theatre. Its entrance hall greets visitors with a pantheon of the country's greatest historic figures, and its halls are filled with distinguished temporary and permanent expositions on all aspects of national and European history, natural history, archaeology, the arts, and ethnography. It should be noted, though, that this particular building is closed for renovation till mid-2015, and its collections can be seen at various other buildings in the National Museum system.
