The Silesian Museum is a gate to Silesia, with a scope extending from both animate and inanimate objects to prehistory, history and art history, primarily with regard to the history of Silesia, as well as north and northeast Moravia. The Silesian Museum is a contributory organisation of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic. It is the oldest public museum on the territory of the current Czech Republic, with a history that stretches back to 1814. With its 2,400,000 exhibition items, it is, at the same time, the third biggest museum in the country. The Old Exhibition Building is the museum’s ‘showroom’, giv- ing an overview of practically all subjects of importance to Silesia and the museum. Apart from being key to knowing the region and understanding the deeper relationships between the various themes, it also off ers a taste of the best that Silesia has to offer.

Tours / exhibitions

Exhibit on Silesia
Description Due to the restricted amount of space available and the richness of the Museum’s collection, this concept allows visitors to see the widest possible range of exhibits and topics relating to the natural and cultural richness of Silesia. It would only be a slight exaggeration to say that every time we welcome a visitor, he or she discovers something new. The Silesia exhibition takes up all three floors of the Old Exhibition Building of the Silesian Museum.
