Overview
More
Moldavites are the only precious stones in the world created in a meteorite impact 15 million years ago. The meteorite fell into today's Germany, but the moldavites are to found in South Bohemian region only. The exhibition of the museum tells you the whole story of meteorites, their role in planet formation, influence they had on the evolution of life and the hazard they represent to human kind today. The exposition is build as futuristic and interactive environment, funny and educative at the same time - it is more a "thing to do", than a "thing to see"... The exhibition is made completely trilingual, incl. the movie (Czech, English, German). All texts are provided in 5 more languages. Open everyday from 10 to 18.

Great little museum in a character building. Well put together audio visual and plenty of pieces of Moldavite to look at. Right in the center too.

The museum is quite small, yet with many gems on display and it's an amazing exhibition. Don't forget to try sizing and shooting your "own" meteorite. 4 people pay the fee of 3 only.

The Moldavite Museum is a very unexpected, fun surprise that Cesky Krumlov has to offer. The museum includes very informative graphics about the history of meteorites, stones produced from them, and large events in civilization. After reading the informative posters, there is an interesting video...More
