This museum houses the private art collection of Jan and Meda Mládek, who collected work by a wide range of Eastern European and Czech artists while living abroad in the US during the 1950s and 60s. The collection includes works by such heavyhitters as František Kupka, often thought of as the father of abstract painting; Otto Gutfreund, one of the outstanding 20th-century Czech sculptors; and Jiří Kolář, a postwar surrealist known for his work in collage. Before or after your visit, be sure to stop for a coffee at the museum’s lovely café overlooking the river.
