My girlfriend really wanted to come here as she likes contemporary art. The art was a bit weird and abstract, as expected, however overall it was interesting and thought provoking. There were a few exhibitions that were closed which was disappointing because we both wanted...More

I love this place! Regardless of the fact that this enormous museum is located outside the city centre, it is a treasure cove. The art is modern and contemporary. I have been here many times and I still find the venue a maze with amazing...More

The exhibitions when I went were very creepy and graphic. Lots of skin and shocking art with graphic concepts. It was an interesting experience but not recommended for children. The design and book store is a good selection though. And the zeppelin is cool to...More

The art exhibited is contemporary and varies almost from month to month - there are several parallel exhibitions, paintings, photos, installations, etc. A nice shop with hundreds of art books and some art object, often unique. A pleasant cafe with a terrace and a partial...More

Though not located in the city center, this place is certainly worth visiting. For a single ticket, one has a chance to see all currently available exhibitions. Plus, the place respects students discounts (it is even cheaper for art students!). Even the building itself is...More

Really cool exhibition space, cheap entrance and not busy! We chose this over the Prague national gallery to keep our trip cheap and away from tourist hot spots. Loved one of the two artists being shown, great curation and will definitely return!

DOX requires getting out of central Prague, but it only takes about 20 minutes on the metro, and then a 2 minute walk. Definitely worth visiting: wide range of exhibitions, high quality and beautiful gallery space.
