Successful exhibitions of the National Museum in Prague

Exhibition The Hunters of Mammoths is more successful that the organizers ever dreamed of. It has been visited by more than 250,000 people so far. Such a high visit rate made the organizers prolong the exhibition until 1st July. Updated: the exhibition is prolonged until 2nd September 2007.

The exhibition doesn’t only show mammoths and the lives of people in that era but it also touches every sense. Visitors can hear roars of wild animals and smell leather. People interested in prehistory can also buy many souvenirs, such as small mammoths or copies of the precious statuette Venus of Dolni Vestonice.

The National Museum displays besides this popular exhibition also the piano on which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played during his visit in 1787. Another exhibition is devoted to the history of Charta 77, an informal initiative against the process of normalization, and the Nobel Prize for Literature that was given to Czech writer Jaroslav Seifert in 1984. The Nobel Prize as well as the piano are displayed until 25th March.

The National Museum at the top of Wenceslas Square also prepares the exhibition of precious prints of The Unity of the Brethren and the exhibition showing the jewellery of famous Czech opera singer Ema Destinova.
