Castle Museum - Český Krumlov Castle

The Castle Museum, which opened on 11 January 2011, is located in the renovated premises of the Hrádek on the 2nd courtyard. There are 29 rooms set aside for individual exploration. The rooms‘ interiors are furnished in the style of the 19th century, including historical lighting fixtures and original tile stoves.

The „Hall of the Lords of the Rose“ and „Hall of the Dukes of Krumlov“ are dedicated to the several aristocratic families who previously owned the Krumlov dominion. The faithfully renovated office of former senior officials is shown by the office of the Schwarzenberg administrative director, estate director, and others.

The armory, as well as the mint with its unique Eggenberg minting machines, is well worth the visit.

The exhibition is supplemented by attractive exhibits from the castle depositories, such as the reliquary with the skeleton of St. Reparat or the model of the castle as it looked in the mid-16th century. The cinema at the end of the tour shows footage from Schwarzenberg family films from the beginning of the 20th century.
