St. George Monastery or Lobkowicz Palace? The National Museum’s Historical Exposition in the Reality of Czechoslovakia of the Era of Normalisation
One of the oldest and most important departments of the National Museum was the Department of Historical Archaeology. It had its representative exhibition in the building on Wenceslas Square since 1894, but it gradually became obsolete and was finally closed down during the Second World War. However, the new exposition of history after the war was a long time coming and its creation was complicated. Two attempts to create it are reflected in the text. In the first case, it was to be part of the planned memorial to the history of the Czech nation at Prague Castle (with the participation of the National Gallery and the collections of Prague Castle) and was to be placed in St. George Monastery. In the end, however, the overly generous project was not realised. In the second case, the building of the Lobkowicz Palace was assigned to the National Museum and it was only here that a new exhibition of history from the Middle Ages to 1848 was created in 1973–1987. The present text reflects some interesting circumstances of the creation of this exposition.
