This unique exhibition provides a look into a yet undiscovered subject – the mysteries of Kutná Hora during the „silver fever“. In those times, silver was a good enough reason for small thefts, as well as armed raids. However, our exhibition does not show only those traditional monotonous crimes. We’ll sweep you into the world of witchcraft and iniquity!
The stories presented are actually cases registered in the medieval criminal records. Every story is accompanied by period visual materials and example of actual interrogation and torture instruments.
Criminality was closely tied with the Hussite period, as Kutná Hora was the symbol of all things evil to Hussites. Our museum also offers an exhibition of various weapons from this period..
