Prague is a city with many museums, but the truth is that for a trip with young children, most of them can be too dense and little entertaining. In this guide we have selected the most important and suitable for families.
Once you have chosen which museums you want to visit, remember to plan a tour with the most attractive areas for the little ones, and not to combine all the cultural activities on the same day. Finishing the visit to a museum with a pleasant walk through the center and an ice cream can be a good idea.
The Národní Muzeum or National Museum of Prague is located in one of the most representative buildings of the city and is the most important museum in the Czech capital.
Inside it houses numerous works divided into five permanent collections: Prehistory of Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia, Mineralogical and Lithological Exhibition, Paleontology, Osteology and Anthropology, Zoology and Decoration and medals from European countries.
On a trip with children you will probably have to select only what you are most interested in seeing to prevent the little ones from getting tired and bored. We recommend that you do not miss seeing the zoology collection, very entertaining for the whole family.
