The Museum of Beroun Pottery

Beroun Sights and Attractions Museums & Galleries
The museum is located in the Reinovský House. It represents a preserved type of housing for poor city inhabitants, who gradually developed the field by the city walls from the 16th century. The house was built around 1720. It gained its present appearance after the adaptations carried out after 1810.

Opened in 2015, this multifunctional museum complex offers permanent exhibitions dedicated to the unique Renaissance pottery from Beroun and the history of the local crafts. It is also used for other exhibitions and fairs, lectures, and chamber concerts. The museum has its own pottery workshop with a pottery wheel and kiln where visitors, including children, can try their hand at working with a clay in year-round courses or one-day workshop events led by experienced pottery artists.
The workshop preserves the tradition of Beroun pottery craftsmship by using the long forgotten old technics typical for the 16th and 17th centuries. The production of the significant unique pottery has returned to its place of origin - the historic centre of Beroun. Address: Zámečnická 14, Beroun

Museum of the Czech Karst

Beroun Sights and Attractions Museums & Galleries
The museum is located in the Jenštejnský and Salátovský houses, the most significant houses on the Husovo square.

The Jenštejn House is one of the historically oldest and architecturally most precious burgher´s houses in Beroun. At first glance it attracts by its Renaissance portal made of red limestone with the Latin sign: Benedic Domine Domum istam et omnes habitantes in ea. Henricus Cžižek de Genstein Gratae posteritati. Anno Domini 1612. (Lord bless this house and all the people staying inside. Jindřich Čížek of Jenštejn to his dear descendants. Anno Domini 1612)
It gained its Baroque appearance through its reconstruction after the town fire in 1735. The house with an arched passage to Slapská Street intervenes on the left side. 

The Salátovský House was bought by the rich burgher of Beroun Alžběta Salátová in 1643, at the time also owner of the neighbouring Jenštejn house. After a reconstruction following the town fire in 1735, the the house received a low Baroque gable over a high attico with two rectangular windows. A part of the gable collapsed in a storm in 1967 and subsequent repairs changed the appearance of the gable. In terms of the construction adaptations in the late 1990s, Salátovský House was interconnected with Jenštejn House.

The Museum of the Czech Karst offers permanent exhhibitions such as The History of Crafts in Beroun, 18th and 19th Century Arms in the Beroun Region, Living Nature and Caves of the Czech Karst, short terms s exhibitions and an outdoor exhibition of Barrandien Geopark.
