Conservators are usually hidden from visitors; the public is not familiar with their job which is a variable and complex activity that incorporates various skills and knowledge and which often requires interdisciplinary cooperation. The Conserved Past exhibition seeks to expound on some processes of ceramics, metal, paper, textile, and wood conservation. Moreover, the exhibition presents new methods, such as 3D scanning of objects, as well as participation in the education of the incoming generation of conservators.

A New Prague City Museum at Těšnov?
The presentation shows designs for the new Prague City Museum building at Těšnov created by the students of the Prague’s Faculty of Architecture (CTU), namely the studios of the architects Roman Koucký and Ladislav Lábus. The inspirational designs for a modern museum building on the site of the former Těšnov Station point out a crucial issue: it was clear already in 1900 when the current museum building opened at Florenc that it would not be sufficient for the museum’s needs.
