One of the many museums in downtown Prague is dedicated to the famous artist Alfons Mucha (1860 to 1939). Painter of paintings, poster painter, graphic artist and mucha was one of the most important artists of Art Nouveau in Europe. In the Czech Republic Alfons Mucha is very famous.
In the first room of the Mucha Museum you can see many of Mucha’s famous posters. Very famous is a series of 72 watercolor plates (Documents Décoratifs). The drawings show how plants and other things from nature can be used in decoration. In another room you can also see paintings (oil), graphics, sketches and more by Alfons Mucha. Also you can see many photos and writings of the Czech artist. His study is also recreated. At the very back of the small museum, a film is shown in a small cinema about the life of the artist. Probably the most famous painting by Mucha in the museum is of a Russian peasant woman. Mucha lived in Russia for a while. The painting has several names: Star, Siberia and Winter Night.
Bestseller: Prague boat tour with dinner (buffet)
It is perhaps the most popular tour in Prague. 3 hour boat ride in the evening on the Vltava River with great buffet dinner included. Great modern ship with lots of glass for best view, open top deck for photography, good food and very good reviews from participants. Price under 60 euros per person, window seat only a few euros more. Our recommendation for a cruise on the Vltava River.
In the small museum you get a very good overview of the person and the works of Alfons Mucha. For tourists in Prague interested in Mucha or Art Nouveau, this is certainly an interesting museum. However, the Mucha Museum Prague is quite small with 2-3 rooms. The entrance fee is too high from our point of view.
What is good is the museum store, where you can buy prints of Mucha’s famous posters and other stuff. Most of the captions, explanations and films in Mucha museum are in Czech and English. In English, Mucha’s first name is spelled differently: Alphonse Mucha. Art Nouveau in English means “Art Nouveau.” The Prague museum is the only museum in the world where everything revolves around the Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha.
Mucha Museum entrance fees and tickets 2023
Tickets can be purchased directly at the museum box office. Adults pay 280 crowns entrance fee. This is about 11 euros. Children, students and people over 65 pay 190 crowns.
We think the entrance fees are a bit too high for the small museum.
