“Great insight into local culture”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Well organized. Good audio guide. A bit out of the way but well worth it. We had the Cesky Krumlov card which not only gave us a discount but encouraged us to visit all four of the sites.

“Beautiful and interesting exposition”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We came here with my partner because we found the museum on TA and we weren't let down! The exposition is excellent and so is the audio guide commentary! The museum is interesting on many levels - cultural, historicaland technological. A whole-hearted recommendation!

“Do not miss”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Yes, this museum is a place one should not miss out when staying in Cesky Krumlov. Not only you can see the history, photos and equipment, but mainly the story of this house and its treasure is unbelievable! The treasure was hidden so well, that family living in the house didn´t know anything. Try to see and find out, it is worth while.

Very well restored museum which is based on photographs of a local photographer called Seidel.It is both important to the Czechs as well as the Germans as it captures the moments before the expulsions of the German citizens from Czechoslovakia.The old equipment is also impressive,great museum

“A delightful surprise”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This museum looked interesting, but we were very impressed with it. It gives a pictorial view of life from the late 19th Century to the communist era. The house and gardens are as they were and it was fascinating to see the photographic equipment, Siedel was ahead of his time in equipping his house for electricity even though power was not yet available. An audio tour is part of the admission price and this added immeasurably to the experience.
