Regional Museum and Gallery in Jičín - Museum of Play

Bohemian Paradise

The Regional Museum and Gallery is located in the premises of the chateau in Jičín. The unique interactive exposition presents the history of the Waldstein family.

The Regional Museum and Gallery is located in the premises of the chateau in Jičín. The Museum administers more than 80,000 items in its historical and natural science collections. The Gallery, which is situated in the south wing of the chateau, concentrates works not only by regional visual artists. The paintings of the 2nd half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century make up the core of the collection. The Museum of Play represents a unique interactive exposition, offering services of the family guide, and also an interactive tour for visitors to learn about Waldstein-related history through a game, and, since 2006, also a permanent exposition titled The History and Nature of the Jičín Region, with interactive elements and worksheets for schools and visitors. There is also a museum puppet theatre here, where visitors may put on a theatre performance.

Advent workshops are regularly organised here before Christmas, when kids and grown-ups may make traditional and untraditional Christmas presents and decorations under the guidance of the Museum's staff.
