Permanent Interactive Exhibition All the UNESCO monuments in a single place – the Dacicky House

The Dacicky House, situated in the historic centre of Kutna Hora, is a unique exhibit itself. You can see the House completely, starting from the cellars up to the attic. The interior represents an interactive exhibition, first of its kind in the Czech Republic, which presents the UNESCO, the monuments of our country on inscribed on the UNESCO list, but, above all, you will learn why Kutna Hora is a member of the family of the most significant world monuments.

What is in fact the Dacicky House?

This centre for providing modern cultural and educational services to the professionals as well as laypersons came into being by reconstruction of the House of Mikulas Dacicky, which was conformed to the principles of monuments preservation care. The Dacicky House presents UNESCO cultural heritage and preserves significant cultural elements related to the history of the Kutna Hora town and its region.

The activities taking place in the House throughout the year can be divided into four fields:

  • exhibitions
    permanent exhibition and two types of seasonal exhibitions
  • education activities for broad public
    educational programmes, lecturing, commented tours
  • professional activities
    conferences, workshops, sessions of doctoral programmes students, documenting and digitalization of historic materials
  • cultural events
    concerts, combined programmes etc.

All these activities are related to the thematic specialization of the House and contribute to completing its mission.

Perhaps the most popular floor of the Dacicky House.

Then you can continue into the cellars. In the Hall 0.3 you can see a most popular interactive floor projection, across which you will pass over to the second floor of the cellars, where you can see the 3D projection 0.2 devoted to the UNESCO monuments of the Czech Republic. In the most obscure part of the House, there is a surprise for the children: a speaking mining sprite...
