Czech Countryside Museum – Kačina Castle

Events at Kačina in 2018

Events at Kačina in 2018

This year we have prepared a record number of exhibits and public events for you at Kačina. We are building on the success of last year’s “fairy tale” season, however, this year it should be even more varied and include links to the establishment of the château, the National Museum of Agriculture and Czechoslovakia.

This year will also include new opening hours. In the high season, the museum will be open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. including Mondays.

Throughout the season, we will be offering four standard circuits showing everyday life at the aristocratic residence in the Empire era, for example the life of the noble Chotek family (château salons, library, chapel, theatre, greenhouse, kitchens, stables and more). From June to September, you will also be able to join a costumed tour with the mysterious character Count Rudolf. This tour, which is part of the project “Open the 13th Chamber”, ends this year. It is your last opportunity to experience Kačina in a slightly different way. The tour is particularly suitable for children.

In addition to regular tours, on selected days in July and August the museum will also be holding interactive tours for the whole family – fairy tales for children, costumed tours with a story, concerts and evening tours.
