muzeum_hlavniho_mesta_prahy_3 The Langweil model of Prague.
The Langweil model, created in 1826–1837, is a unique exhibit and the most attractive one in the museum.
Once it had been cleaned and new lighting had been added it was reopened to the public on 12th April 2007

Prague in prehistory
The permanent display is dedicated to archaeology of Prague from the prehistory to the arrival of the Slavs in the Early Middle Ages. The introductory sections bring information about the beginnings of archaeological research in Prague and some significant figures of Prague archaeology as well as about the development of the settlement of the Prague basin from the Palaeolithic Era to the Early Middle Ages.

The exhibit begins with a section on the formation of Prague Castle, Vyšehrad and the expansion of the settlement of Prague in the 9th – 12th centuries. With the founding of the Old Town and Malá Strana in the 13th century and Hradčany and the New Town in the 14th century the Prague conurbation became a major European centre.

Prague at the end of the Middle Ages and the start of Modern Times
The second half of the 15th century and the 16th century – the Late Gothic period and the penetration of Renaissance ideas and art into Prague. At the beginning of the 1580’s Emperor Rudolph II, a patron and collector of art, moved to Prague Castle with his entire court. From the end of the 15th century and from the 16th century until the present day the oldest views of Prague have been preserved, as well as the largest number of Renaissance architectural fragments and building components from houses in Prague and also an inexhaustible amount of material evidence of the life of Prague’s inhabitants and their households.

Baroque Prague
A large number of artistic treasures and documents showing how people lived in Prague have been preserved from the time of the “shining and dark Baroque”. Among the City of Prague Museum’s best collections is its collection of Baroque sculpture but a lover of art visiting this part of the exhibit will also enjoy paintings by Škréta, Brandl, Hirschely and Grund.

A primer for visitors to historical sights
This exhibit is devoted to the unique architectural monuments that today’s Prague has inherited from its ancestors. Some of them have been preserved until the present day, others have been rebuilt or demolished and we recognise them only from fragments but this does not change in any way the importance that they had for the history of architecture.
