National Technical Museum Prague
At the edge of the Letná park, in front of the National Technical Museum, stands the oldest floored carousel in Europe. The National Technical Museum is planning to restore the carousel's structural parts in the immediate future, which, however, will not be enough to restore the carousel to a fully functioning state. Therefore, a cooperative project between the district of Prague 7, the National Technical Museum and other nearby institutions has been formed to plan the restoration of the remaining portions, and return the carousel to fully functional status in the near future. This initiative is open to sponsorship by the public, that is, to anyone wishing to help restore the Letná carousel. Beginning January 6th, 2015, it is possible to contribute to the restoration fund by donating to transparent account: 107-9304750207/0100.
On September 29th the National Technical Museum opened the Center for Building Heritage in Plasy, in the newly renovated buildings of the former monastery brewery and mill. It serves as a unique center for documenting, exhibiting and educating in the fields related to the history of architecture, civil engineering and traditional construction methods.
