The 17th November anniversary may be over, but that doesn't mean that there are no more reasons for celebrating left. On the contrary. On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, the National Museum prepared a number of events, not only in Prague but also abroad, for instance in New York, Vienna or Paris. Let's take a closer look at the exhibitions and projects in questions, because they are definitely worth your attention. Until 24 November, you can visit both the Historical and the New National Museum buildings free of charge.

Make sure not to miss the Velvet Revolution exhibition in the Historical Building of the National Museum. It maps not only the Velvet Revolution itself, but also the events of the second half of the 80th or the election period. You'll be able to take a closer look at original collection items related to the significant revolution. These include, for example, Václav Havel's medals or his presidential oath from December 1989.

The largest multimedia exposition!

Another exhibition, entitled Moments of History, will be awaiting you in the connecting corridor between the Historical and New National Museum buildings. With a total of 112 meters of projection, this multimedia exhibition will literally draw you into the turbulent events of the 20th century that took place on Wenceslas Square, thanks to the two-meter high image and as many as thirty-eight projectors.

"The National Museum prepared a reminder of November 17, 1989, not as a single exhibition, but as a complex for both its central buildings. In addition, we document not only the hectic days of the revolution, but also the state of society in the late 1980s and the subsequent path to free elections. At the same time, we are opening an extraordinary multimedia project Moments of History in the connecting corridor, which is unequalled in Czech museological practise. It focuses on the dramatic fate of Wenceslas Square in the 20th century and its dynamic architectural development,"

said Michal Stehlík, Deputy Director General of the National Museum.

Keep your ears and eyes open!

Other projects of the National Museum include a traveling exhibition called The Velvet Revolution 1989, which will be open to people not only in Prague, but also in several world destinations, such as Berlin, Vienna, Budapest and Moscow. The exhibition also features audiovisual materials from 1989.

The last project worth seeing, or rather hearing, is a unique sound installation created by Czech Radio in cooperation with the National Museum. Period sound recordings from the radio archive will surround you, providing an overview of the most interesting social, cultural or political events.
