Prague’s Army Museum receives national Gloria Musaealis award

The reconstruction and new permanent exhibition of the Army Museum at the Military History Institute in Prague has received this year’s Gloria Musaealis prize for best museum project.

The museum, which is located at the foot of the city’s Vítkov hill in the Žižkov district, opened last October after a four-year reconstruction which cost over CZK 900 million.

In the Exhibition of the Year category, the Central Bohemian Museum in Roztoky near Prague won with its new exhibition called Archevita – Traces of the ages.

In total, 73 museums with a total of 123 projects took part in the competition.
