JULY - AUGUST: Monday to Saturday 10.00-17.00;

Glass cribs were part of my childhood, my mother was a figurine maker. As an adult, I started collecting glass nativity scenes because I realized that this industry is a disappearing art. When I had about 50 of them, I started my mini-museum so that the public could enjoy them. Now the mini-museum has over 80 of them on display and I am delighted with the response from visitors. I think that glass cribs belong to the cultural heritage of Železný Brod.
Visitors can see 80 glass nativity scenes, both historical and contemporary. Most of the cribs are figurative, for which the Železný Brod region is famous, but there are also engraved, cut, glass tube, beaded, fused sculptures, etc. The mini-museum includes a bead workshop (not only) for children, where they can make their own necklace or bracelet for 30 CZK. The mini-museum is entered through a small shop where you can buy glass figurines, cribs, jewellery and other regional products.
