The boating collection is one of the oldest collections of the National Technical Museum, the first objects were included in it as early as 1908, the year the museum was founded. The exhibit is centred on models of ships. The oldest of them are original models of river vessels made by the Lanna company.
The only real vessel - the only one in the collection — is the sailboat Niké I, with which the singlehanded sailor Richard Konkolski sailed around the world in the first half of the 1970s. It is also displayed directly on the ground floor of the transportation hall. One of the last very important acquisitions belongs to the estate of the sea captain Josef Holub, the two-dimensional objects are kept in the NTM Archive and the three-dimensional objects (uniform, awards and others) have been incorporated into the NTM collection.
