If you want to absorb some culture, or need to retreat inside to hide from the rain, there are a ton of amazing places to visit in Prague that will fascinate people of all ages. Here we have handpicked a few of our favorite museums and exhibitions for you to visit.

National Museum

Out of all the museums in Prague, the National Museum is by far the most impressive one. It is a beautiful building, located right at the end of the promenade at Wenceslas Square, so there is no chance that you will miss it. It is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00, so you have a lot of flexibility to fit it in your schedule.

You can find many interesting things here, not only from Czech history, stretching all the way from 8th century to the WW1, but also from biology and the miracles of evolution. The biggest attractions from which feature a whole whale skeleton. Then, there is a prehistoric exhibition, where you can see real artifacts that are millions of years old!

Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures

If you have already heard a lot about Czech history and culture during your visit to Prague, consider visiting a museum about something different at thew Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures!

This museum is a subsect of the National Museum and focuses on history and cultures from around the world. They are open every day from 10:00 to 18:00 apart from Monday. They change their expositions often, so here you can check out what they will feature during your time in Prague!

Franz Kafka Museum

The city of Prague was home to the surrealist novelist Franz Kafka. So, it only makes sense that there is also a museum dedicated to him here. Kafka’s museum is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00 o’clock and you if you are into literature, we highly recommend you to visit!

The exhibition they have prepared for you is composed of two parts. The first part is dedicated to Kafka’s life in Prague and is called Kafka in Prague: Existential space. It shows how Prague impacted Kafka’s life and formed his personality. In the second half, which is named Prague in Kafka: Imaginary topography, you will learn how Prague affected his work and the setting of his stories.

It is also very close to our office, so we recommend you to visit either before or after one of our tours!

Invisible Exhibition

If you want to experience something completely new, look no further and come to visit Invisible Exhibition. This exhibition will show you what is it like to spend a day without eyesight. The way this exhibition works is that you will get a guide who is blind and this guide will lead you through several specific rooms that are completely dark and the only way for you to percept your surroundings is by listening and by touching what is next to you.

They are open between 10:00 and 20:00 from Monday to Friday and between 12:00 and 20:00 on weekends.  The last part of the exhibition is invisible café where you can try what a blind person experiences on daily bases.

To get the guide in English you need to make a reservation on their website.

National Technical Museum

For the fans of science and technology there is the National Technical Museum. This museum has several exhibitions, but the most famous one is the transportation exhibit. You can see many historically important cars, some of which even ran on a steam engine, bikes from the 19th century all the way until today, the first planes, jets and locomotives!

Apart from the transportation exhibition you can look forward to seeing exhibitions focused on architecture and design, astronomy, sugar and chocolate, cameras, mining, metallurgy, chemistry, the measurement of time, printing, home technology and TV studios.

The National Technical Museum is open every day from 9:00 to 18:00 apart from Wednesdays, when they close at 16:00, and they are closed on Mondays.
