Although the name might sound a bit boring, this museum is one of Prague's most interesting, with a huge array of large exhibits including trains, planes and automobiles.

The National Technical Museum (locally: Národní technické muzeum) was set up at the start of the 20th century to document and preserve the technical achievements of the Czech people. Today the museum has a collection of over 50,000 different artifacts.

There are nine major permanent exhibits here.

  • Transport, probably the most impressive exhibit in the museum containing motorized vehicles like motorbikes, cars, planes and trains.
  • Acoustics, with displays of some of the first microphones from the 1920s
  • Printing
  • Photography and Cinema, displaying cameras from the start of the 20th century through to the modern day
  • Communications
  • Technology in everyday life
  • Astronomy
  • Architecture and Civil Engineering
  • Mining, located in the basement and recreates a working coal mine.

In addition to these permanent exhibits, there are also a number of temporary ones which change on a regular basis.

The museum is located on the edge of Letna Park, and can be reached with the tram to station Letenske namesti, or subway line A to Hradcanska or line C to Vltavska.
