The Museum was founded in 1957. The reason for its opening was the attempt to map the history of the biggest czech car-company. The exhibition is composed by the vehicles fabricated in the period from 1908 to 1989.
The museum possess the third largest collection on the world, that is composed of 80 pieces of vehicles: cars, motocycles, tractors, ambulances or hearses. The part of the exhibition are also the historical documents, the layouts needed for the fabrication, photos, magazines, but also postal stamps, badges and many others.
The exhibits are the vehicles of the brand PRAGA, for example Praga Grand 1919 of T. G. Masaryk, Praga Golden of Edvard Beneš or Praga Lady of Lída Baarová.
PRAGA is a former czech manufacturer of cars, motocycles, transporting vehicles, tanks and so on. In 1907, „the Frist Czech-Moravian Machine Factory in Prague“ merged with „Ringhoffer´s Company“ and that is how „the Prague Car Factory, LLC“ emerged. The name Praga was used from 1909. The others products were for example licensed cars of brands Charron, Renault and Dykomen.
In 1911, the company started to fabricate their own vehicles. From 1964, the company merged with „the Car Factory Letňany“, so they were specialised only on the production of transmission mechanics and the car production was transmited to the new part of the company.
From 2000, the museum is opened to the vaste public. Opening days are everyday except from Monday and Wednesday, from 11am to 5pm (the last entry is in 4pm). The Museum is situated in Zbuzany – Pod Kaštany 14, in the district of the Prague-West.
