František Palacký and František Ladislav Rieger Memorial
A household of five generations, from aristocrats to wealthy townsfolk, is presented in six rooms of the first floor in the Rococo Mac Neven Palace. Part of the unique original furnishing is preserved in the social and music salon, bedrooms and studies of historian František Palacký and his son-in-law, advocate, politician and encyclopaedist, František Ladislav Rieger. The remarkable artistic collections, historical and family portraits of the 19th Century include, among others, portraits of Josef Mánes, Julius Mařák and the statue of J. V. Myslbek and furnishings from Classicism and Biedermeier up to Secession. In a separate room there is an exhibition of furniture, sculptures, ceramics and glass from the ethnographical collection of Rieger’s daughter, Libuše Bráfová and her contemporaries, among whom, for example, was the artist Zdenka Braunerová.
During opening hours, visitors can buy postcards, a new colour guide to the Memorial and also older publications of the Palacký and Rieger families.
