Karel Zeman Museum

The Karel Zeman museum presents a complete work of the world renowned film maker Karel Zeman and his cinematic special effects, which made Czech cinematography world famous in the 20th century. In the museum, you can see a unique and playful exposition that is enjoyable for adults as well as for children. The individual rooms of the museum are decorated as movie studios with small stages, where visitors can step into the films and make their own shots.

The museum maps the life and work of Karel Zeman from its beginnings – from his first animations and puppet films in the 1940’s to work from his last creative period. A substantial part of the museum is dedicated to his most significant films – Journey to the Beginning of Time, The Fabulous World of Jules Verne and The Fabulous Baron Munchausen.

Interactive tablet guides are available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. Furthermore, the area surrounding the exposition itself is very creatively designed and available to explore free of charge.

We also offer accompanying program, which includes boat trips on Čertovka and Vltava riveranimation and special effects workshops and film screenings.
