Regional Museum of K. A. Polanek

The history of the Žatec museum has begun to develop since the year 1896. The oldest exposition of the museum is „The Prehistory of the CEntral Ohře Basin" which is one of the most complete exhibitions about the prehistory in Northwestern Bohemia. Visitors get to know archeological findings from the oldest Stone Age up to early Modele Agens. Even a part of the Žatec silver treasury found in 1937 is there on display. Another permanent exhibition is „The Historical and Urbanist Development of the tlen of Žatec". This exhibition shows the development of the town from the first written record of the year 1004 up to end of the 19th century. There are on display: „The Bohemia Chronické" by Václav Hájek of Libočany, the Hussite weapons, a tile with the symbol sof the Hussite towns etc. Žatec is connected with hops unseparably. The youngest exhibition of the musem „The Cabinet  of Hop Tokens" was installed in 2002. I tis a collection of marks given for the raw hops. The hop tokens come from various villages in the Žatec, Louny and Podbořany areas. The exhibition is constantly completed with new accessions.

The Villa of Dr. Wilhelm Kriz

The villa of Dr. Wilhelm Kriz is situated in the historical space of the quarter called Skotnik. The first written record about it dates back to the year 1769. The whole house is a unique example of the Neo-Renaissance architecture inspired by the architecture of the North Italián Renaissance. The interior of the villa is undoubtadly most interesting. The doors in the hallway on the first floor lead into four walk-through rooms decorated richly. In two of them there are original Neo-Renaissance tiled stoves preserved. Every visitors is engaged with rich stucco decoration and with the decorative ornamental wall paintings by Josef Aussig Reiner from 1898. From the hallway on the left-hand side there you are attracted with the Red Room and with the Great Hall which is also richly decorated with the coffered ceiling with a figural painting and with a tiled stove. Both rooms have as one of the ceremonial places in the town since 2006. Except gallery exhibitions there also take place lectures, concerts, fashion shows, and other cultural and social events. There is a wide range of books, postcards, tourist-marks and other souvenirs for sale in both museums buildings.
