The New Building of the National Museum has a special place in the history of Czechoslovakia. At the time of the Velvet Revolution, it was a seat of the Federal Assembly, which elected Václav Havel as President of Czechoslovakia and passed hundreds of laws that led Czechoslovakia to democracy. After long 40 years, Members of Parliament elected in free elections sat on the benches of the Federal Assembly. The exhibition will put the selected Members of Parliament back in the Federal Assembly based on the information they entered in questionnaires after being elected in June 1990.
The Velvet Revolution Exhibition: Back on the benches
The exhibition in the New Building of the National Museum presents selected Members of Parliament elected in free elections and returns them to the benches of the Federal Assembly.
