Municipal Museum

Description:The largest room of the museum is dedicated to the history of the city, from the first mention of the existence of the castle to the present. It introduces archaeological finds, important documents, the history of local crafts and trades. The exhibition includes a children's corner with a magnetic board, where everyone can try to piece together Letohrad Square, and an interactive touch computer with lots of other information about the city and the museum, an entertaining quiz, movies with the possibility to play puzzles or open-air players. Matchmaking is one of the most important stages in the history of the town, which was called "matchmaking Kyšperk" in the 19th century. Matches were still produced here three years earlier than in Sušice.
