A new museum of glass in Prague is blown beyond proportion on the street of Na Příkopě

Museum of glass in Prague

On Na Prikopech there arose in the course of the year 2015 a new museum of glass in Prague that will exhibit uniquely crafted Czech and international glassworks.


ZIBA Glass Museum Experience finds for this exposition the unique building Živnobanka. It will be a unique worldwide installation for Czech and foreign authors, as well as play a major role in Czech glass, crystal, design, latest technology and effects, linked to sound, light and variable space. There will be a permanent exhibition of the Bohemian Glass Story, in which visitors will be able to find, for example, a glass sculpture and glass Fire creative by Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, the 1959 masterpiece, which literally shaped glass art in the global context.

Investment group CPI Group, who own the building, want to reconstruct the grounds with maximum respect for the architectural integrity of the building and its surroundings. Virtually unchanged, it retains all the extensive historical interiors that are unique in the décor and art works by leading Czech artists. They are still currently working on architectural study for the renovation of the building. After the design phase in 2014, more work and modification will take place during 2015. The Gallery expects to be open to the public in late 2015 or early 2016. So don't hold back and come join us for an excursion to the glass factories where you can even try your hand at the time-honored tradition of glass-blowing!
