Museums and galleries are a must-see part of the visit to Prague. Every museum has a different story from which can be learned from. Museums are by definition institutions that store and exhibit various collections of antiques and artworks. The definition itself already seems to be dry, so it is generally expected that what is to be seen in the museum is not something that can occupy our attention.
