Museum of T. G. Masaryk in Lány

T. G. Masaryk, the first Czechoslovak president, cherished Lány as his summer retreat and final resting place. The museum in the granary commemorates his life and historical events.

Since 1921, Lány has been the summer retreat of President Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, creating an indelible connection between the village and his legacy. The T. G. Masaryk Museum, located opposite the baroque chateau, vividly illustrates Masaryk’s life, career, and family.

The museum showcases six sections, covering Masaryk’s family life with a reconstruction of their Prague apartment, featuring personal items and elegant attire. Other sections delve into Masaryk’s academic career, his role in World War I, and include exhibits like uniforms and reconstructed trenches, providing a vivid historical experience.

  • Tip for you: Through a partnership with Tonak, the T. G. Masaryk Museum in Lány offers two stylish Masaryk cap models. Ideal for everyday wear and as souvenirs, these caps come in various sizes and colors. They are available for purchase at the museum.

Explore Masaryk’s presidential era, capturing his travels and stays at Prague Castle and Lány Castle. The First Republic exhibition delves into the societal perspective, divided into the male and female worlds. Concluding the journey is the exhibition ‘The President Has Departed,’ marking the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia, showcasing the period after Masaryk’s death and examining how totalitarian regimes treated his legacy.
