In the late nineteenth century when photographing was becoming the next big thing, Josef Seidel and his son Francis were at the Forefront of its artistic value. but this Museum does not merely record their art but also their lives. It provides a unique insight into the lifestyle of two photographers, their habits and routines, and an exploration of their techniques. You get to see the tools they used - paper scissors, a photo press, polishing machines, a hand-operated printer. Even more engagingly, the entire Museum intimately links the artist to their Czech heritage. It is recommended that you take the guided tour.

I have been to this museum very recently and I totally recommend it. There you will be able to find a huge variety of negatives and photographs and also an intense history that is behind all these. If you are a photography lover or curious enthusiast this place is a must.
The narrative of the entire museum is excellent. It feels like time has stopped there and the museum has a soul! You just have to go in and feel it yourself.
The museum was great with a video presentation and audio guide. The front desk person was very kind and helpful. The museum really transported you to the past.
Good self-guided story of a great Czech photographer.
Interesting photo museum with a story and context for visitors
