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.
After examining the timeline with the important personalities of the villa, you can look at photographs with Werich and Voskovec from Václav Chochola while heading to this floor. An excerpt from A Night with Hamlet can be heard in the Holanerium and you can play with the words that flow along its walls, as if the artist himself were arranging them into verses.
You can delve into Werich’s world thanks to the carrousel with period photographs from Pavel Vácha and five of Jan Werich’s favourite recipes. A faithful reconstruction of two rooms of Werich’s flat offers a close-up view, as if Werich had just jumped out for a moment. How was food stored at the Werich’s, where there was always something delicious cooking? Take a look through the peephole into Werich’s pantry.
In the Liberated Theatre room, you can become Voskovec or Werich for a while and only the biggest fans will get all the questions in the new interactive quiz with lines from their films.
