When visiting Prague, a museum visit is not the first thing on your what-to-do-and-see list. However, an hour or so in a museum is definitely worth it. Prague has a lot to offer in the field of art and culture. With 20.000 objects, the National Museum, Narodni Muzeum, is the largest museum in the Czech Republic.
Be sure to include a visit to Prague Castle and Golden Lane, the castle grounds are free to wander about but if you want to see the crown jewels you will have to get a ticket. The Long Tour will keep you busy all day, an afternoon or morning is enough for the Short Tour. The Museum of Communism is an eye-opener and tells about the country's past during Communist days. The Dvorak Museum is compulsory for all music fans.
The Mirror Maze on top of Petrin Hill and Sea World in the Holesovice district are the perfect spot to be with children, but adults will also be charmed especially when the sharks are being fed.
Most museums are closed on Mondays and are open on the other days of the week from 10.00 to 18.00. The National Museum is also open on Monday and free on the first Monday of the month.
