Villa Rothmayer

The family house, situated near the Military Hospital in Prague-Břevnov, was commissioned by the architect Otto Rothmayer for his family during 1929–1930. Today, the villa is an outstanding representative of Czech interwar architecture.

Villa Rothmayer Exhibition

The exhibition entitled The Story of a House and Family adds to the construction-stable building with restored interiors and the original furnishings as well as (save for a few exceptions) authentic artefacts from the Rothmayer's estate – small artworks, glass sculptures, products of nature, and many objects looking ordinary at first sight. Only several pieces of furniture were sensitively added to accommodate visitors.

The exhibition concept focused on the best possible restoration of the interiors and garden to their appearance in the late 1950s and early 1960s. At that time, the villa was one of the Prague's smaller centres of informal cultural life and this period is best documented in photographs. The exhibition in the basement and on the ground and first floors is not only dedicated to the oeuvre of Otto and Božena Rothmayer, but also reminisces about their artistic friends.
