National Museum

Top choice museum in Nové Město

Looming above Wenceslas Square is the neo-Renaissance bulk of the National Museum, designed in the 1880s by Josef Schulz as an architectural symbol of the Czech National Revival. Its magnificent interior is a shrine to the cultural, intellectual and scientific history of Czechia. The museum’s main building reopened in 2018 after several years of renovation work, but the permanent exhibition is yet to be reinstalled.
