Historical Prague Collections
The history of Prague and its people from ancient times until 1784, when Prague came under a single administration, partially closed due to the installation of a new exhibition. Worth seeing is Langweil’s Model of Prague from 1826-1834 – a unique and very attractive exhibition item in the museum.
