National Technical Museum: discover the history of transport and astronomy
Head to the National Technical Museum in the Letná district of Prague, where you can choose from five engaging expositions. The Architecture, Engineering and Design exposition presents a range of models, plans and artefacts from the 19th and 20th centuries. Another exposition is focused on astronomical instruments primarily from the 16th and 17th centuries, but you can also see a meteorite that is nearly 5,000 years old. The “Transport Hall” acquaints you with the development of transportation and displays many interesting vehicles. Also attention-worthy is a photo studio, with a valuable daguerreotype by the photography pioneer J. L. M. Daguerre, and an exposition on the development of the printing press, with a manual press from the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.
