Fodor's Review

Housed in a grandiose neo-Renaissance structure at the top of Wenceslas Square, the National Museum was built between 1885 to 1890 as a symbol of the Czech national revival. Indeed, the building's exterior is so impressive that invading Soviet soldiers in 1968 mistook it for parliament. The holdings are a cross between natural history and ethnography and include dinosaur bones, minerals, textiles, coins and many, many other things. In 2011, the museum closed until 2018 for a long-overdue renovation, though the annex next door at Vinohradská 1 continues to hold temporary exhibitions.
