Introducing our new TV MuMo channel

We will take you through several years of important projects and exhibitions which we have presented in the Czech Republic. In due course you can look forward to more videos of our activities abroad and especially to the currently installed exhibition “The Professor Beneš’ Cabinet of Mysteries“ which, for the time being, remains a great secret.



We keep going!

The Museum’s rooms will remain temporarily closed until September, but we are using our outdoor areas to present works from our collection.

We are currently working on organizing our depository, putting together the Museum Montanelli collection catalogue, and most importantly, preparing our next exhibition, one we have already announced.

“I don’t want to just store art in a depositary where nobody will see it. Personal relationships with artists mean more to me – talking about art and sharing and creating thematic projects.”
