“Free on Wednesdays but worth the entrance fee on other days”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

A really good museum and worth spending an hour or 2 in when visiting Olomouc. I'd recommend getting the audio guide as well.
