Hořice na Šumavě Radio Museum
In the village of Hořice na Šumavě you will find an interesting museum, whose exposition consists of radios, and which was actually created by chance. Mr. Antonín Brodňanský was engaged in the repair of old radios, so people wore old radios to him. But not all of them were repaired ... and so those that were no longer functional, Mr. Brodňanský simply hid on the ground. But over time, too, it began to fill. And it was then that the idea was born to establish a museum of radios.

How did the museum come about?
Mr. Antonín Brodňanský is, with up to about 5 exhibits, the owner of all the radios you will see in the museum. He collected them for several years and collected them in his small 1 + 1 apartment on the attic. At a time when his apartment and land were literally overflowing with future museum exhibits, Mr. Brodňanský suggested to the mayor that the radios could be exhibited.
The realization and arrangement of the museum was taken over by a circle of friends of Antonín Brodňanský with the help of the village, and the collector subsequently donated his entire collection to the village of Hořice na Šumavě.
The museum has been operating since June 4, 2001.
The oldest receiver you will see in the museum is only Radioglob TA 27, dating from 1927. An even older exhibit is the receiver crystal, which was manufactured in 1916. The exhibits are of various brands, such as Philips, Telefunken, Sigma, Telegrafia, Rel , Eumig, Blaupunkt and others, among which, of course, there is also the famous Tesla.
The exhibition consists of approximately 180 pieces of exhibits: radios, televisions and music boxes. All have been carefully renovated and most are still functional.
