Glass exhibition closed
From 1 February 2023, the glass exhibition (main building) is closed due to reconstruction. You can look forward to a new exhibition at the beginning of 2024.
The Museum in Zelezny Brod has, for more than 150 years, preserved and protected historic sights connected to the history of the town, its culture and daily life of its citizens. Glassmaking also belongs to the area of interest.
The exposition of glass is located in an architectonically unique building, former city savings bank from 1936. The display shows the history of glass production in Zelezny Brod from the mid-19th century to the present. There are examples of home processing of glass – the production of pressed and lamp beads, cutting and stringing. The next part represents the glass school in Zelezny Brod, the first Czech glass school founded in Zelezny Brod in 1920. It was the teachers and graduates of the school who were responsible for the specific artistic expression of art glass in Zelezny Brod. Their exceptional work from the '20s to '80s of the 20th century is a substantial part of the exposition. The exhibition also includes the famous glass figurines by Jaroslav Brychta. These figurines became one of the symbols of Zelezny Brod. Contemporary art and also unique technology of melted sculpture, born in Zelezny Brod, is represented by several art pieces by world-known artists Jaroslava Brychtová and Stanislav Libensky.
