The Museum of Czech Literature: We are open!

Memorial of National Literature = Museum of Czech Literature

After almost seventy years, the Memorial of National Literature has changed its name and headquarters. It moved from the Strahov Monastery to the Petschek Villa in Bubeneč and opened its collections to the public as the Museum of Literature. Thousands of archival materials, books and works of art found in its collections have been given the opportunity to speak in the new space, where they are presented in a permanent exhibition and in shorter thematic exhibitions. The permanent exhibition invites you to visit it as a whole that can be followed linearly as a history of literature, while each of the ten rooms is specific and unique in the original concept of its curator. Archival materials are supplemented with audiovisual works by contemporary artists; an extensive digital catalogue with expanding information is available, and accompanying and lecture programmes are held in the multifunctional hall and in the adjacent garden. The renovated building of the Petschek Villa not only has an exhibition space of almost 1,000 m², a café and a garden, but also modern specialized departments that provide traditional research services. The Memorial of National Literature has become the Museum of Czech Literature. Welcome.
