01/ Cellars

The exhibit is situated in three cellar rooms originally meant for storing coal. In the first room visitors will be able to see how Kampa Island developed through historical maps and can learn about the rich history of Werich Villa.

The other rooms make up the “clay pit”, dedicated to the phenomenon of the Golem. Here children can pretend to be the Rabbi Loew and let their fantasy run wild as they create their own Golem out of modelling clay.

2/ Holanerium

This space is dedicated to the poet Vladimír Holan, who lived in the villa’s ground floor flat. The small room on the mezzanine with a view of the romantic Devil’s Stream is ideal for inspirational contemplation.

Visitors can bring the work of this great poet to mind by reading or listening to his poetry and those more daring can create their own works of poetry on the magnetic board.

03/ Permanent exhibit

This is primarily dedicated to the legacy of Jan Werich, Jiří Voskovec and the Liberated Theatre. But you can also find Werich’s post-war films and his works for children here, which visitors can learn about in an interactive exhibit on the 1st floor of the villa.

The captivating atmosphere is also created by the partially period interior in “Jan Werich’s study” with many original items kindly lent by Mrs Zdenka Hulik (Fanča) and by private collectors.

The exhibit is enriched by further supplementary information, photographs or period documents hidden under QR codes. Thus visitors can delve into further layers of the exhibit using their mobile phones.

But what makes our exhibit truly unique is our partnership with Microsoft and UserTech, which has given these spaces another dimension. Visitors can choose either a classic tour of the permanent exhibit or an expanded exhibit with virtual reality thanks to the aforementioned companies. We are the very first museum in Europe to offer this possibility, thereby achieving a true connection between Jan Werich’s legacy and the present day.

04/ Attic

A multifunctional hall is prepared to host a myriad of programmes, everything from workshops relating to the permanent exhibition to film screenings, discussions, lectures, theatre presentations, dance programmes, etc.

Please contact us at programy@werichovavila.cz to reserve your event.

05/ Garden

The enclosed part of the Werich Villa garden is situated on the banks of the romantic Devil’s Stream. The rest of the original garden was freely connected to Kampa Park so that Werich Villa would be more open to its visitors.

We welcome you here for film screenings in the summer months and theatre presentations, for example, or for garden parties or weddings. Yoga is regularly practiced here in the summer months.

It is possible for the visitors to the permanent exhibition to spend some time here in relaxation and contemplation in a romantic environment in the very heart of Prague.

If you are interested in leasing the spaces or putting on any of the offered events, please contact us at pronajmy@werichovavila.cz.

06/ Museum Shop

In addition to tickets for the permanent exhibition, it is also possible to buy tickets to the workshops relating to the exhibition as well as to other events held by Werich Villa.

In our museum shop on the ground floor of the villa it is possible to get tourist stamps and stickers, other souvenirs and memorabilia, gift vouchers for free entry, and even picnic blankets and baskets, and much, much more.

07/ Club zone

A pleasant spot on the ground floor of Werich Villa to stop and relax for a while with a good cup of coffee or some cake.

But our club zone can also be transformed into a space suitable for book readings, poetry recitals, lectures or discussions on all kinds of themes.
