National Technical Museum Prague

From June 1st to October 29th we will open the extensive railroad depository in Chomutov for public access. The former locomotive depot of the Czech railway system contains over one hundred pieces of rolling stock and other interesting items of railroad technology.

Opening hours: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 10am - 5pm

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. You may contribute to the restoration fund by donating to transparent account: 107-9304750207/0100.
