Museum of Decorative Arts

Top choice museum in Staré Město

This museum opened in 1900 as part of a European movement to encourage a return to the aesthetic values sacrificed to the Industrial Revolution. Its four halls are a feast for the eyes, full of 16th- to 19th-century artefacts such as furniture, tapestries, porcelain and a fabulous collection of glasswork. At the time of research it was closed due to extensive renovations taking place; it was scheduled to reopen in 2017 with double the amount of space for its permanent exhibitions.
