All about: The National Memorial at Vitkov Hill ( Národní památník na Vítkově )

Interwar period Army museum
Armádní muzeum Žižkov
(Army Museum Žižkov) had been integrated into the complex of Památník národní osvobození (National Monument) at Prague Vrch Vítkov (Vítkov Hill). In the period between WW1 and WW2 the museum exposition was divided into five time layers. The first part was dedicated to the period between 1914 – 1915, part two commemorated the events between 1916 – 1917, the next part between 1917- 1918, part four concerned the events from 1918 until armistice had been concluded before the formation of Czechoslovakia and the last part involved expositions dated from the formation of the independant state until 1920 and was concluded by the return of the last transports of the Czechoslovak legionaries.

World War 2
In 1939, in the occupation period by the Nazi military forces, the entire premises of the National Monument was occupied by the German Gestapo and department for the German Military Museum. German military forces subsequently moved all the museum exponates from Žižkov and neighbouring Karlín into Schwarzenberský palác in Hradčany, where the German Vojenské muzeum (Military Museum) was constituted afterwards. Germans took these collections before the end of the war with them, however most of them were returned to the homeland again.

Army museum Communist Period
After the war Muzeum Památníku osvobození (Museum of the National Monument) was established where the collections from the years 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 were placed. In February 1948 the museum was closed, and those expositions not completely matching the Communist ideology were entirely reinstalled. In 1951 an exhibition called „30 let Komunistické strany Československa“ (30 years of the Czechoslovakian Communist party) took place here. The museum was closed shortly after the exhibition again and it was re-opened under a new name in 1954, as Muzeum Československé armády (Museum of the Czechoslovakian Army). After defeat of communism in November 1989 the museum turned into Muzeum odboje a České armády (Museum of Resistance and of the Czech Army). This name was after some time changed to Armádní muzeum Žižkov (Army Museum Žižkov) which has survived until today.

The first one covers the period of WW1 between 1914 – 1918, the participation of the Czechs and Slovaks in it and the period of political and military actions that resulted in formation of the independant Czechoslovak republic. The other part is dedicated to the interwar Czechoslovak republic and its armed forces, the third exhibition space covers  the period of WW2 and records the participation of the Czechs and Slovaks in military operations and its fronts, in the national resistance and also in other events that were supposed to restore the independance of Czechoslovakia.
