There are so many different museums in Prague focusing on many interesting subjects. Art, Medieval torture, Legos, chocolate, and authors are just a few of the more recognized subjects of museums around Prague 1. All these museums welcome hundreds of thousands of tourists and visitors coming in each year who are interested in the rich history of the Czech Republic and all of it’s brilliant artists and thinkers. Sometimes, you will find the most amazing Czech museums in the most unexpected places like restaurants, theaters, and castles and what most people don’t realize is that many of these places usually have their own museums which are sometimes overlooked.
Today we will be taking a look into the Charles Bridge Museum. Its entrance is small and it is tucked beside the Old Town Bridge Tower but still, people from all over the world find themselves presently surprised when they wander in. The Charles Bridge Museum is exactly what the name states, a museum that provides the true history of one of Prague’s most visited landmarks, The Charles Bridge.
A walk through the museum usually takes around an hour depending on how leisurely you walk. It has miniature as well as full-sized figures and models of the people who built the century old bridge and shows the whole story of how it was built, from the early stages of construction to the full bridge which we stand on today.
Kids and adults alike will love studying the old artifacts and learning the strategies of how they carved the wood for the first structure, to the tools not only kings and royalty, but everyday people of the 1300s used to carve and stack the stones used to build the iconic bridge.
The price of the tickets is average for a museum and also includes a scenic river boat ride. While there, you can also enjoy their small cafe and pose and take pictures next to a knight in shining armor.
