Iron Curtain Museum – The museum offers a view of border surveillance from the First Republic to the present. The main part of the exhibition is devoted to border surveillance associated with the Iron Curtain.
The Iron Curtain Museum in Valtice presents the many years of service on the state border with a special emphasis on the period between 1951 and 1989, when the service was carried out by border guards, and when efforts were made to achieve absolute impermeability of the state border curtain, almost to perfection.
In addition to a number of uniforms, weapons and equipment, the museum also features a large number of photographs and documents showing the turbulent times presented at the border. An interesting thing is certainly the reconstruction of the Iron Curtain, or a real cell!
