Sun–Fri (Apr–Oct) 9-18 (Nov–Mar) 9-16:30, except Jewish holidays
Named after the Prague painter Robert Guttmann, this modern venue is a new addition to the Jewish Museum in Prague. It is dedicated primarily to displaying work created by Czech Jewish artists from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, although these aren't strict boundaries. Much of what is exhibited will come from the Museum's significant art collection, which previously had no permanent venue through which to rotate. The Gallery offers the perfect venue for displays of the Jewish Museum's ongoing research and restoration work to be relayed to the public. Promoting young or lesser-known artists is another goal of the Robert Guttmann Gallery. With four to five exhibitions a year, the gallery is dynamic but gives each artist a bit of time for their great work to get noticed. At only 30 CZK for an adult ticket, this is a valuable stop on your tour of the Jewish Museum; it will, like the other parts of the Museum, tell you stories from Prague's rich history but the Robert Guttmann Gallery will speak through beautiful and thought-provoking art instead of tombstones and sad stories.
