Concierge.com's insider take:
Though Cubism came to life in Paris at the hands of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, it was in Prague that the movement reached its zenith. The style touched virtually all aspects of Czech art and culture: furniture and interior design, typography, painting, advertising, and architecture. The Museum of Czech Cubism is part of the National Gallery of Prague and focuses on the period from 1910 to 1919, including paintings by Emil Filla and sculpture by Otto Gutfreund. The collection opened in 2003 and is rightfully housed in the House of the Black Madonna, a 1911 Cubist building designed by Josef Gočár. If you want to bring some of the design home, check out the reproductions on sale in the Kubista gift shop on the ground floor and visit Modernista around the corner for even more classic Czech design.
Open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 6 pm.
