“Modern and interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

One of few attractions of this kind in the Czech Republic that meets international standards. Freshly set in an attractive way, modern, interesting. Well staffed with helpful people and you can have a reasonable coffee after the tour. Definitely worth coming when you are in town.

“Archdiocese museum, Olomouc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Congratulations to Dr. Zatloukal for the transformation of this museum. The room with the medieval statues in particular is breathtaking. The museum is well laid out, the staff are helpful and there is a good bookshop.

“Free on Wednesdays but worth the entrance fee on other days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

i got the audio guide and found it very helpful. I loved the juxtaposition of the old ruins against the modern concrete. Apparently the golden coach which is the first exhibit you see was used in the film ' Amedeus' . this museum is a lovely quiet place to escape the midday heat for a few hours, the audio guide also makes it very interesting too.

“This museum is like opening a gift”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I was visiting the cathedral and went for the museum as well and it was a big surprise. What a beautiful page of history in a modern assembly. This museum was obviously well planned and it was a pleasure to visit. Although you constantly feel like in a maze it actually adds to the whole experience, well worth the 50 kc.

I think this modern approach is a big plus to the future of religious museums, we definitely need more places like this.

“Pride of Olomouc”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

The museum has a fine if limited collection of pieces from the history of Olomouc. The reliquaries and monstrances are very beautiful, and displayed in an interesting and accessible way. They were the high point of the collection, and rivaled similar pieces in the Hapsburg royal treasury in Vienna.
