About the Museum
More effective efforts for the foundation of the municipal museum date back to 1877 when, on 26 October, Deputy Mayor Professor Otakar Antonín Zeithammer notified the city council that many individuals and societies sold antiquities documenting the history of Prague to agents who took them abroad. He recommended collecting these objects in one place, a newly built museum. The special committee for the foundation of the municipal museum established a permanent committee.
