The exhibit, which was to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Monroe's death, was created last year by Florence's Museo Salvatore Ferragamo. The museum's namesake was the actress's favorite shoemaker and she owned a dozen pairs of his handmade shoes.
After Prague, the exhibit was to head to Tokyo.
David Sebek, spokesman for Prague Castle, which was supposed to host the show, said most of the exhibit items, including Monroe's dresses, had already arrived intact at the location.
Prague police spokesman Tomas Hulan said the thefts are being investigated but refused to give any other details.
