Charles Bridge Museum

Visitors can learn more about Charles Bridge, its construction, its changes over the centuries, and its works of sculpture. Visitors can also learn more about the predecessor of Charles Bridge – Judith’s Bridge.

The exhibition’s midpoint is a newly-made bridge model in the 14th century, depicting its construction, material transport, building machines and even 350 workers in working clothes with their instruments. Construction of the model took a year and a half; it is a masterpiece like no other in the whole republic, in its detail and accuracy. Reconstruction work also includes, by use of special technology, local stonecutters’ marks. Those are hidden to an ordinary pedestrian, as they stayed visible only at water level, in the Old Town bridge tower and on the bottom side of the bridge arches. The most interesting marks are displayed in the ‘touch’ part of the exhibition, intended for the sightless.

There are also other temporary exhibitions and a museum souvenir shop.
