National Technical Museum Prague
The National Technical Museum was opened in 1910, but it should be noted that its first exhibition was not located in the functionalist building we know today, but in the Schwarzenberg Palace in Hradčany. This modern building was then built in the pre-war years (1938-1942) and architecturally corresponds to the neighboring building of the National Agricultural Museum. The museum is after a recent extensive reconstruction. The work on the museum was completely completed in 2012 and since then it has once again served the full general public.
