The National Technical Museum is the largest technical museum in the Czech Republic and one of the oldest and most important technical museums in the world. The foundations of the collections were laid by Vojtěch Náprstek in 1862, while the museum was established in 1908 and its collections gradually grew over time. The museum building was built in Prague in Letná according to the design of the architect Milan Babuška. The first exhibitions were opened here after the Second World War, but the entire building began to be used exclusively for museum purposes only after 1989. The building has been fully renovated and since 2013 there are new exhibitions located here. The museum is expanding the number of places for presenting its collections. The museum branches are open from April to October. The Center for Building Heritage is located in Plasy and the Railway Depository in Chomutov.
