On September 27, 1900, the City of Prague Museum opened to the public and the historical exhibition rooms have been used by the museum since then.
The Renaissance structure with a cabin-style first floor has been part of the Museum since 1939. The building is one of the last reminders of the distinctive Podskalí Quarter
The compound comprises several buildings, a large park, and a courtyard. Originally, there was a 14th century Gothic fortified manor house; later a Renaissance castle was built on the site.
The future exhibition will cover the urban life of the Prague area and its transformation in the 14th century and will open at the 12th of December 2016.
