The National Technical Museum is the pride of Prague. For over a hundred years extensive collections have been assembled documenting the development of many technical fields, of the natural and exact sciences, and of industry in the territory of today’s Czech Republic. 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. In the 20th century the museum was labelled as the best museum of its kind.
