PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS

GETTING TO ČESKÁ TŘEBOVÁ BY TRAIN, VELOREX, PLANE, OR BOAT

The umbrella title of the Museum’s permanent exhibitions is a brief description of what visitors can see here: Traffic Intersections or Getting to Česká Třebová by Train, Velorex, Plane, or Boat. The title combines, with some exaggeration, four means of transportation that are either typical for Česká Třebová or somehow connected with its history: rail, road, water, and air transport. The exhibitions present the history of the Česká Třebová railway junction; the aeronautical efforts of local sculptor František Formánek; the invention of the legendary Czech three-wheeler OS-KAR (later renamed Velorex), constructed by the Stránský brothers; and the history of the plans to interconnect three seas by the Danube-Oder-Elbe channel. more
EXHIBITION BY TRAIN

EXHIBITION /01

GETTING TO ČESKÁ TŘEBOVÁ BY TRAIN

The transportation feature that is indisputably the most typical for Česká Třebová is its railway. The museum’s exhibition devoted to this mode of transport informs visitors about the history of railway travel since the mid-19th century, with an emphasis on the period of the first Czechoslovak Republic.

EXPOZICE /04

DO ČESKÉ TŘEBOVÉ LODÍ

The connection between water transport and the town of Česká Třebová is little known. It would have become a reality if the Danube - Oder - Elbe project had been implemented, i.e. waterworks interconnecting these three big European rivers had been constructed.
