Closure of the Historical Building from February 1 to February 28, 2019:

Dear visitors, we would like to inform you that throughout the month of February the Historical Building of the National Museum is due to operational reasons CLOSED. In March the Czech-Slovak / Slovak-Czech exhibition and exhibition 2 × 100 will be available again. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding.

Visiting the building

The Historical Building of the National Museum has not yet been fully endorsed by construction authorities, so currently it only offers limited capacity. For this reason, access to visitors must be regulated. In the event of queues, we kindly ask for your patience. The capacity of the building is 300 people at a time.

The estimated time of a tour is 90 minutes.

Minors will only be allowed when accompanies by a responsible adult or guardian. Due to ongoing construction, the building does not currently offer barrier-free access.

Last entry is 60 minutes before closing time.

Czech-Slovak / Slovak-Czech Exhibition

This exhibition in the Historical Building of the National Museum will introduce the history of the common state of Czechs and Slovaks.

Why reconstruction?

There have not been any significant repairs made since the opening of the building. It was also damaged by two military attacks in 1945 and 1968. If we had not started with a renovation of this extraordinary building as soon as possible, there would have been a threat it would have to be closed due to security reasons. So the aim of the demanding reconstruction is to save such significant national cultural heritage and to transform it into a modern museum space. 

Due to the extended space in the historical building and its connection with the new building of the National Museum, there will be almost doubled space for the exhibitions (11 300 m2). So the visitors will have the opportunity to admire many unique collection items hidden in depository today.
