No awkward moment like this could destroy our experience of one of the largest photo & cinematographic collections in the world. This museum is a must-see for the photo & film afficionado as well as those interested in devices for time measurement . One large section was devoted to historic sundials, water clocks,etc. that reminded me of the collection at the Greenwich Museum in London. Of great importance in the development of the modern world were technological devices that helped organize and capture that world. A fascinating, well-planned museum that succeeds without relying on words ! To get there from Ovenecka, walk 4 blocks south ,turn right on Letohradska, then right on Muzein & left on Kostelni for front entrance to the museum. In effect, you'll be circling the museum . Well worth going a little out of the way! This museum emphasizes that the Czech Republic may be a small nation, but many of its citizens have made significant contributions to the making of the modern technological world.
