Old Town Hall - Ostrava Museum

Local name: Stará radnice - Ostravské muzeum

The Ostrava Museum is housed in a former 16th-century town hall. The modern exhibition opened in 2009 shows the natural environment of the Ostrava region, the history of the city and coal mining in the region, craft traditions and works of local artists.

The beginnings of the museum date back to 1889 and the private collections of the local teacher Karel Jaromír Bukovansky. After World War I, they were transformed into a museum, which has changed its exhibition many times until today.

The exhibition, changed in 2009, responds to modern challenges in presenting collections. Enriched with multimedia, engaging visitors, it guides through the world of plants and animals, the most important events in the history of the city and the culture of the local population. The exhibits include, among others, an astronomical clock from the 17th century and a mechanical orchestra from the beginning of the 18th century.
