Run as part of Prague’s multi-faceted National Museum (Národní muzeum), the Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures houses the city’s fascinating repository of non-European treasures. The collection was founded by the Czech explorer and industrialist Vojta Náprstek (1826–1894) and since 1921 has been located in a fine Baroque former brewery known as U Halánků in Prague's Old Town.
Bringing alive the ancient cultures of Asian, African, and American art with vibrant displays of death masks, costumes, ceramics, fine art, coins, and jewelry, highlights of the museum include primitive wooden masks and ornately painted shields from tribal Africa; dugout sealskin canoes and decorative totem poles from North America; and brightly painted toys from Japan. Temporary exhibitions are chosen from the museum’s rich collection of 95,000 artifacts and are supported by an excellent collection of historic photographs.
The Náprstek Museum is located in Prague's old town, and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 6pm. It opens one hour early on Wednesdays at 9am. To reach the museum, take Metro Line B to Národní třída or tram 6, 9, 18, 22 or 23 to Národní.Náprstek Museum.
