The Karel Zeman Museum presents the life’s work of the world famous film maker Karel Zeman and his cinematic amazing effects, which made Czech cinematography world famous in the 20th century. The museum shows the life and work of Karel Zeman from its beginnings – from his initial animations and puppet films in the 1940’s to work from his last creative period. The other part of the museum focuses on his most significant films – Journey to the Beginning of Time, The Fabulous World of Jules Verne and The Fabulous Baron Munchausen. The museum’s interesting approach to the exhibition is special. It allows guests to participate directly - to try out with their own photo and video cameras selected special-effect techniques that Zeman used in his films. The individual rooms of the museum are conceived as movie studios, and there are small stages with backdrops which visitors can step into and shoot their scenes. They can take a ride on a flying machine, or walk around the moon like Baron Munchausen, or take the controls of the famous submarine from “The Fabulous World of Jules Verne.” Also part of the exhibition are previously unpublished photographs, original puppets, and other documentary materials from the life and work of this visionary filmmaker. The museum is an interactive and amazing place focused on families with kids from the Czech Republic and abroad. In the long run, the museum will be an institute preserving and promoting the legacy of the director and fine artist Karel Zeman, providing a wide range of activities for the general public and for specialists from the Czech Republic and abroad.
