About National Museum

The National Museum is a place exhibiting the culture and history of the Czech Republic. Its centre stands strong, proud and dominant in the centre of Prague as a grand building that subtly illuminates at night. It opened in 1818 to present and establish significant collections of the country, housing 14 million items over many buildings, teaching the public about its national history, art, music, nature and many other cultural concepts.

Three main departments separate the collections of the National Museum, including the Library, Historical Museum and Natural History Museum. With a Journal Department boasting the second largest collection in the country, the Library contains old Bohemian prints and manuscripts, predominantly from the 19th century, as well as valuable paintings that decorate the walls of old fashioned study rooms. The Historical Museum covers ancient artefacts and tools of early man, as well as specific national history, including items from the 10th century Slavonic Culture, objects from the Czech medieval ages, and signs of daily life during the old Czechoslovakia nation. The Natural History Museum offers scientific displays of wildlife and plant life, as well as covering periods of ancient world history, with exhibitions from the great, extinct dinosaurs, to the timeless, minuscule world of insects.

The most important aspect of the National Museum is that it is not just a single building, it is scattered about the city. However, Prague is well-connected by trams and metros, making it easy to navigate. The main building at Wenceslas Square can be reached via the metro, or tram line 11, by getting off at the stop Muzeum. Alternatively, the newer sections of the museum can be found along the Metro lines of either A or C.

The National Museum originated from private collectors making their collections public.From here, it developed through multiple additions of cultural and historical artefacts. However, there is no single point in time at which the museum was founded, as the beginnings of these cultural exhibitions goes back to the early 18th century when there was a raised awareness of promoting art and taste in society. Originally located in Sternberg Palace, the space proved too small for the growing collection and construction began on the grand building in Wenceslas Square, where the centre of the National Museum still is today.
