Culture Minister names new head of National Technical Museum

The Minister of Culture Jiří Besser has said that new director of the National Technical Museum will be the former deputy head of Prague’s National Museum, Karel Ksandr. The official announcement of the nomination should be made on November 22 with Mr. Ksandr taking up the new post by the start of December. The long time former director of the museum, Horymír Kubíček, was sacked in mid-August after an audit found a multi-million crown hole in the museum’s finances. The museum has been closed due to extended reconstruction work.
