Mucha Museum

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by bobthequiz on July 12, 2004

Mucha has become a national industry in the Czech Republic, and this museum, operated by the Mucha Foundation, is the real thing... it contains displays of Mucha's work, including some original pencil sketches.

There are fascinating photographs of the artist's life (including a photograph of Paul Gauguin at the piano sans trousers) and a thirty-minute documentary of Mucha's life.

The (almost mandatory) retail opportunity is not particularly cheap (100kc for a fridge magnet - 350Kc for a mouse mat, up to £100 (yes, a hundred POUNDS) for a silk scarf), but the quality far exceeds the marketplace tourist tat.
