Mucha Museum

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by mfs on December 11, 2000

This small museum features only the work of the great Czech Art Nouveau artist Alphonse Mucha. Mucha was famous for the posters he designed for the theater productions of the great fin-de-siecle actress, Sarah Bernhardt, and his work optimizes the Art Nouveau movement. The collection includes phenomenal paintings, posters, sketches, statues and photographs by the artist, and also features Mucha's lesser known works celebrating pan-Slavism. Visitors may also view a film on Mucha's life and work in several languages. Also, the museum has an excellent gift shop - it's a great place to buy gifts for the folks at home.

Admission was fairly expensive by Czech standards - about $6 - however, we felt that our visit was worth much more.
