About National Museum In Prague
The National Museum Prague in 1818 with a focus on natural sciences. Later, in between the years of 1830 and 1840, the museum also started collecting historical objects. The museum was then seen as a center for Czech nationalism. It took almost an entire century to balance out the historical artifacts with the science ones.
National Museum Prague comprises of 6 departments namely: The Department of Prehistory and Protohistory, The Department of the Old Czech History, The Department of Ethnography, Department of Numismatics, Archives of the National Museum and Department of Theater. Czech National Museum Prague, over the several years, has been damaged quite severely, once during the construction of Prague National Highway and Prague Metro. It was also damaged in World War II by a bomb, but luckily none of the artifacts were damaged.
The National History Museum Prague was taken over by the government in 1949 and was turned into an organization, consisting of five autonomous professional components. The Museum of Czech Music was later added in during 1976.
This historically significant building has been closed for construction since July 2011 and is set to re-open in October 2018. While the main building is closed there are many things one can see: The new building, the Museum of Asian, African and American cultures, Czech Museum of Music and various other departments which are still open to the public.
There are quite a few long-term exhibitions on display in Prague Museum National. One of which is the “Noah’s Ark” focusing on the animals of the planet that live or used to live on the planet. Another long-term exhibit is in the Department of Music, where an exhibit called “Man-Instrument-Man” is on display. There is a belief that musical instruments not only represent incredible mechanism and craftsmanship but also act as mediators between men and music.
For all the history buffs visiting the National Museum Prague will be an amazing experience and once the main building reopens it will receive more visitors than ever. Until then one can watch the virtual of a tour of the building including seeing a 4 ft. tall mammoth on the laptop screens. When in Prague, it is a place not to be missed.
