About
Moldavites are the only precious stones in the world created in a meteorite impact 15 million years ago. The meteorite fell into today's Germany, but the moldavites are to found in South Bohemian region only. The exhibition of the museum tells you the whole story of meteorites, their role in planet formation, influence they had on the evolution of life and the hazard they represent to human kind today. The exposition is build as futuristic and interactive environment, funny and educative at the same time - it is more a "thing to do", than a "thing to see"... The exhibition is made completely trilingual, incl. the movie (Czech, English, German). All texts are provided in 5 more languages. Open everyday from 10 to 18.

Quirky and fun! Great shop!
Dec 2019
We stayed in the rooms above the museum, so got to visit for free. Fun and quirky! Found out something new. These stones are extra terrestrial, so cool! I ended up buying myself a ring, to commemorate our 40th wedding anniversary, as well as lovely pendants for our daughters. Worth the visit. Great interactive displays.

Geologic Interest - Moldavite
Nov 2019
A nice small museum that chronicles the creation/formation of a glass-like material formed by a meteor hit. The "gem" is native to this area and used to make some lovely jewelry. As a novice jewelry-maker, I purchased some small pieces to incorporate in a necklace as a souvenir. My visit to the museum made It is especially meaningful to understand how this material came to be and the importance to the location.

The museum is located close to main city square. The staff was friendly. The museum itself and moldavites are very interesting and nice. I would give 5 stars but one of the attraction didn't work. Everything ok, nice clean and for good price. You should definitely try a visit.

I read a lot about this place before going to cesky krumlov and actually invested lot of time to even visit the place, but sad to say that its not worth that much effort. This is a small museum which is showcasing variousc moldavites. It also had lot of moldavite jewelleries.

Museum with amazing green semiprecious stones.
Nov 2018 • Couples
Well-built museum in small area, very modern and interactive. You can buy nice jewellery with moldavite like earing, neckles for good price.

Small suggest: You should prepared optional subtitles in introduction movie for more languages e.g Hungarian, Polish, Mandarinian or Portuguese ;)

We discovered this small museum thanks to Geocaching! There is an "earthcache' based on information available inside. There was a discounted rate for students but the attendant helpfully pointed out that a family ticket was the most cost effective option for our group .
I was quite fascinated by the whole
Moldavite (Czech: Vltavín) thing.... basically it is a forest green, olive green or blue greenish vitreous silica projectile rock formed by a meteorite impact in southern Germany (Nördlinger Ries Crater) that occurred about 15 million years ago. A kind of naturally occurring glass in a very small area of the world .
If you are interested in rocks and geology then this is a must with lovely displays and an informative video in several languages . The interactive 'throw a meteorite' part was not working on our visit .If you are the family members tagging along then it is a reprieve from the heat , a sit down for the film and there is a free toilet inside ! 45 mins is adequate .

Cosy apartment!
Jul 2018
My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this museum hotel. The room # 3 we stayed in is quite spacious and clean, the bathroom is small. It has basic kitchen facilities and a microwave and small fridge. There’s no air conditioning but there is a fan provided. The gothic structure in the room is quite beautiful. The hotel provides breakfast to your room at a cost of 5 euros for continental and 7 euros for hot breakfast for each guest. We did sleep well apart from the church bell that run every hour until midnight but It added a feeling of being in a very especial place, which it is. Entrance to the museum is free for guests. The museum is very interesting and educative and I learned something I didn’t know. A must visit if you’re in Cesky Krumlov.
