Foreign Airfield Visit

Prague (Národní technické muzeum) – Saturday 31st August 2019 (John Tomlinson)

First museum of the trip was in downtown Prague. As I mentioned earlier, I had visited Prague in 2004 with the wife and I saw minimal change in the transport exhibition layout.

Having said that, the Mignet HM.14 Pou-du-Ciel that I saw in 2004 appears to have moved on or maybe stored, plus an additional balloon basket and fake envelope still needs to be identified.

This museum is more than a transport exhibition as it is a technical museum, if I had time I would certainly have enjoyed a good look around that other exhibition halls

It is open from 0900hrs until 6pm, Monday it is closed and costs 250 CZK £9 each full price entry. Location 50.097051, 14.424395
