Kraliky Military Museum

The museum is located in the middle of a massive zone of Czechoslovak fortifications from 1935 to 1938. On an area of 2400 square meters, you will get a comprehensive idea of the history of the Czechoslovak and Czech armies, the Czechoslovak fortifications, world war II, the history of the resistance and occupation. Part of the museum is also a demonstration polygon designed to demonstrate combat and heavy military equipment in movement and activity.

The foundation of the local expositions was laid by enthusiasts from the Artillery Fortress Hurka. Here, since the beginning of the 90s of the last century, the collection of military equipment and weapons has been gradually created and constantly expanded.

As for the variety of exhibits of the local museum, some of them must first pass through the skillful hands of our conservators and only later can they be presented to the public. Among the most interesting additions with a slightly unconventional appearance, and which are also focused primarily on ground technology, are 3 aircraft engines.

In the space reserved for them, you will be able to see what it looks like and what is the difference between an aircraft, in-line, radial or jet engine. Among other things, the exhibition has been complemented by other interesting exhibits since 2020, such as the LPO Model 50 Light Infantry Flamethrower. This weapon was introduced into the armament of the Czechoslovak Army in 1957, when it began to replace the previously widely used German flamethrowers 41N and portable flamethrowers ROKS-3 or heavy Soviet flamethrowers FOG-2.

Among other things, our future visitors can seduce several times a year in military technology or visit various military-historical events.

In addition to the museum, we recommend you to visit the Artillery Fortress Bouda, which is 1 of the best preserved artillery fortresses in the Czech Republic or possibly some of you can be captivated by the Infantry Log Cabin K-S 14. In this legendary infantry cabin you can find expositions that deal with a number of topics such as the Czechoslovak Legions, etc.
