In this period of a year there is more of cold days, so our walks and outdoor activities are a little bit shorter. But what if you don’t want to go home yet? Where to get heat and also to see something? There is a visit to one of Prague museums. The Museum Of Sex Machines we have already visited. Let us therefore invite you to visit other Prague museums according to your interests. Now, there have been just running interesting exhibitions in many of them.
The biggest museum in Czech Republic is the National Museum on Wenceslas Square. It is open all year round, and a visit will please those who are interested in mineralogy, geology, zoology, anthropology, ethnography, numismatics and history of theater and sports.
The museum also includes the Naprstek Museum on Betlem square (Museum of Asian, African and American cultures). Many of the exhibits here come from the Vojtech Náprstek (Czech patriot) or from his friends, exiles and travelers. For more than 130 years, the museum managed to collect over 6000 subjects from the Australia and Oceania. Interestingly there are interactive art workshops for the public. This museum even prepared a Christmas event from 16.12 – 20.12. It offers African Oriental Christmas market with a rich program for children.
In the new building of National Museum at Betlem Square you can enjoy a Christmas atmosphere with the exhibition called Winter time, Christmas time, holiday time (until January 8, 2012), intended rather for lovers of fine art – it is about the graphics and advertising images. For a great public interest has been extended exhibition Beauty butterfly wings, which will please all lovers of delicate and colorful art.You can enjoy it in the new National Museum building in Vinohrady street until May 1, 2012.
Visitors interested more in technics will like the show Inventors and Inventions which take place in the same building. Some odd and absurd stuff can be seen in the original, using different models or interactive games. Here it is obvious that Christmas is around the corner.
Still not enough? Then, Prague offers you more options. When you walk through Hradcany just can visit a few museums. Definitely do not miss the Museum of Miniatures. All exhibits are the work of art teacher Anatoly Koněnko from Omsk, who has been creating it by self-made tools and technology already for more than 20 years. Most of the thumbnails can be viewed under a microscope or magnifying glass. You may also want to know what looks like a caravan of camels in the eye of a needle, the Eiffel Tower in cherry pip or bicycle of 2 milimeters. Perhaps most curious is a 30-page book about the size of 0.9 × 0.9 milimeters, in which you can read the Chekhov story The Chameleon. The museum is open year round for you.
If you walk around Prague Castle with the children, then the right for you is the Museum of toys. In 11 rooms you can admire wooden and tin toys, dolls, closet, carriages, horses, cars, motorcycles, airplanes, steamships, railways and trains, plush toys, robots, as well as characters from Star Wars Star Trek and Star Wars. For the girls there wait thousands of Barbie dolls. What do you think? Isn’t it good for a Christmas gift inspiration?
In the end, let us invite you to the Museum of Wax, which can be found in Melantrichova Street in Old Town. You can admire the personalities from cultural, sporting and political life of 20th century but there are also representatives of the world scene – such as Lady Diana, or Charlie Chaplin.
For sure you will have many impressions and a tour of exhibition halls will make you tired. But what you can’t catch today you can leave for other days. If you are looking for relaxation and luxury accommodations, you will not regret it when contacting the company Bohemia Apartments Prague. We are here for you!
