Book the entrance ticket to the Gallery of Steel Figures in Prague. Each figure requires anywhere from 1 to 8 months of work. In the Prague Gallery, you can admire more than 100 exhibits over a 1200 square-meter area. Come not only to admire, but take pictures, touch each of the figures, get into each vehicle, and play with your favorite characters.
The idea to create the gallery of steel sculptures began at the scrap yard near Warsaw, Poland. As in every amazing story, it all started with a crisis – a crisis in the scrap market. That is when, in 2011, Mariusz Jose Olejnik decided to use the material available to transform waste into something beautiful. This unique idea later inspired the best craftsmen from all over the world, and today, the international team of GSF has over 120 artists. Each of them works at home, acquiring hundreds of thousands of steel elements directly from local markets.
In the Gallery of Steel Figuresthe contact with the art is unlimited. Visitors are able to touch each of the figures, get into each vehicle, and play with favored characters. Direct contact with art most effectively stimulates and broadens the imagination, while being an excellent entertainment for children. See how art can also be a way of rethinking the idea of creative recycling and ecology.
After the visit, step to the Souvenir Shop, where you can choose from a variety of magnets, T-shirts, handmade jewelry, or miniatures of steel figures.
