The exhibition presents Christmas celebrations by Prague families at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The installation of a burgher’s room and kitchen will provide an opportunity to look closely at Christmas of our ancestors, play with historical toys, and take part in baking Christmas cookies. The interactive form of the exhibition will present Christmas traditions and handicrafts as well as entertainment which was an inseparable part of Christmastime in Prague.
