Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague

in detail

The impressive interior of the permanent exhibition “Stories of Materials” offers visitors an excursion into the history and development of decorative arts: glass and ceramics, graphic art and design, objects made in metal, wood and other materials, jewellery, clocks and watches, textiles, fashion, toys and furniture.
An integral part of the Museum is the largest Czech library specializing in the arts and related fields. The Library offers visitors on-site loan and copying services, database access and searching in the ART (Art and Architecture) subject gateway - http://art.jib.cz.
The UPM presents its holdings at branch museums at the chateau in Kamenice nad Lipou and the Textile Museum in Česká Skalice. The Museum also administers the Josef Sudek Gallery on Úvoz Street near Prague Castle. UPM’s art collections are displayed in the exhibition spaces of the National Gallery in Prague. Many fine examples of decorative art are on view in the Klášterec nad Ohří chateau and the privately-owned chateau at Nové Hrady near Litomy
