  • Beautiful Museum to the creation of the city of Prague. The development of the city is represented, but also ancient artifacts of the past.

  • Since I don't know a lot about Czech history and the main National Museum is still closed for renovations, I welcomed the opportunity to spend 2 hours here. Since Prague is an important city of Bohemi...  more »
  • The Prague City Museum is located in a beautiful building close to the main bus station and the Florenc Metro station in the 8th District of the city, and strives to represent the development of settlements in the region adopted today by this city for nearly a million years. The archaeological finds from prehistoric times show that already groups of Homo erectus are flocking to about 975.000 before Christ in this region and have at least each stopped indefinitely a hunting season, then families or clans of Neanderthals have settled and finally modern humans (Homo sapiens). The different dwellings as well as clothing, footwear, weapons and household goods are exhibited in chronological order and clearly explained in the text panels attached in addition to the showcases (in Czech and in English). From historical time, pictures, drawings, sketches, and armor, as well as documents are issued which are also the legal developments in the municipality of Prague, in the middle ages reveal - like such as the gradual autonomy of the municipal administration of the Royal (or sometimes Imperial) Court, their own legislation and jurisdiction, the formation of guilds in the founding of the famous Charles University as well as the elevation of the bishopric of Prague to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of in 1348. In particular exhibits from the reign of Emperor Rudolph II, which as you know has called also scientists (such as Kepler and Tycho de Brahe) to Prague in addition to alchemists (in the "Golden Lane" at Hradčany) and quasi laid the foundations for the Habsburg possession of works of art with its collection of "Artifacts", which are now exhibited in part also in the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum (E.g. Chamber of art) are from the modern period. High point of the permanent exhibition in the Museum which is city Prague obviously the so-called "Langweil's model" this city by the year 1826, the Mr Langweil in eleven year old small work out of box customized and amazingly lifelike painted it - gave a good impression of the old city, whose wichtigste is fortunately until now have received historical streets, bridges and palaces and the special attraction of this "Golden" city the Viewer. Some years ago a group of students with numerous video cameras and a lot of the cutting edge work has filmed so this Langweil's model in 3D technology, as the viewer of her film with a helicopter in the various directions across this city would fly and explore entirely from above - this film is presented in the basement of the Museum from time to time and usually resonates. There is also space for children, in which these playful are cared for at certain times, while the parents or accompanying persons can look at the exhibits in the upper floors alone in the basement. The ticket currently costs CZK 120,--per person (adults), which is equivalent to about € 5,--, and worth from my point of view for tourists in Prague because a good overview of the long existing city and its outline is offered him. Free again and temporary exhibitions are shown in a separate room, during my recent visit to the filled in the morning a nice representation of life on cinema and "Cinema extinction occurred most recently in Prague" - this exhibition will be replaced soon by another.

  • The museum is not very big and the entrance fee is almost high respect to the othe other museums such as prague echnical museum, also you have to pay fee for the taking photos. However, the 3d model was impressive and the technology via ring it was las nice.
  • Good info, 3D show not so good
  • It should be the first stop for Prague trip.
  • Probably the most impressive is the section dedicated to the prehistorickému period, which in all respects meets the requirements of modern exhibitions. It is located on the first floor. Exhibition of artifacts of the extinct old Prague (including wooden ceilings from demolished houses) today just a classic work of saving the world of modeling, langweil's model of Prague paper. It is then possible to watch even for 3D movies in the basement of the building.
