The direct impetus for the establishment of the museum in Hradec Králové originated from a proposal sent to the town planners by an exhibition committee responsible for a successful exhibition of antiques and relics that took place in the summer of 1879. The proposal was approved by the city council on 21st May 1880, with the museum statutes following on 6th August 1880. / Read more...

History of the Building

The historic building was built in 1909-1912 according to the plans of the prominent Czech architect Jan Kotěra (1871-1923). The project originated between 1907-1908 as a commission by the Museum Board of Trustees. Its final version resulted in a piece of architecture that is not only spectacular and symbolic, but also practical, providing the necessary facilities for the operational needs of the museum. / Read more...
