About the museum

Horácké Museum in Nové Město na Moravě is situated in a former Town Hall from the 16th century on the western side of the main square. The museum’s permanent exhibition illustrates traditional life in the ethnographical region of Horácko. One part of the exhibition focuses on iron and glass production in the past centuries and there is also a diorama of a classroom from the 1930s. The rest of the exhibition covers the history of skiing and ski manufacture in the region from the end of the 19th century to this day. As skiing (especially cross-country skiing and biathlon) is nowadays very popular in the surroundings of Nové Město na Moravě which annually hosts important ski championships, the ski exhibition takes up the largest part of the exhibition space. In 2020 an exhibition dedicated to traditional folk architecture was opened in the newly renovated attic. More than four times per year, various temporary exhibitions open in the Exhibition Hall.

In the summer months, the “Spooky Cellar” can be visited by those interested in the local tales and legends while in the courtyard, you will find the most popular of our exhibits, the mechanical windmill with moving wooden figures, originally found in the village of Vír.

The Information Centre in the building sells tickets, souvenirs, traditional craft products etc.
