The artworks by František Muzika, Josef Šíma, Jindřich Štyrský, Toyen, Zdeněk Sklenář, Jan Kotík and Václav Bartovský represent Czech art after 1930. The exhibition also covers artistic trends from the 1960s to the present day, e.g. Informel, Action Art, New Sensitivity and postmodernism. In 2019, the exhibition was enriched by two dozen artworks selected from the National Gallery Prague depositories by, among others, Zorka Ságlová, Jiří Sozanský, Barbora Klímová, Václav Kopecký and Svatopluk Klimeš. The presentation of post-war Czech architecture was also considerably expanded.

The National Gallery Prague architecture collection shown at the exhibition presents five cabinets dedicated to key moments in architectural development using characteristic examples of iconic works – original models, designs and sketches. The displays include models of the Czechoslovak Pavilion for Expo 58, the swimming pool stadium in Prague-Podolí and the Ještěd TV tower. Some projects that were never implemented or were rejected by a jury are also presented, including projects by the Machonins or Karel Prager.

The second-floor exhibition Fire and Glass displays iconic glass sculptures by Jaroslava Brychtová and Stanislav Libenský as a tribute to the glassmaking craft. The two sculptures interconnect the natural element of fire with human skills, embodying a turning point in the envisioning of glass as an artistic medium with significant roots in Czech country.
