Families with children and barrier-free access



Museum for families with children

The Museum offers a number of entertainment opportunities for children, such as an interactive gaming table called ŠKODA Lab that is part of the standing exhibition, a functional crankshaft model in the technological gallery, books for children in the reading room, the Little Mole and a Car movie, etc.

Children from 10 years of age are welcome to visit the company's production premises, too (working days only, visits to be booked in advance at the Visitor Service).

Guided Museum tours for children

Museum tours for children are guided by a ŠKODA mascot who starts the tour by inviting the kids to take an adventurous journey through the newly reconstructed Museum and join him for a variety of tasks relevant to the new presentation. Tour worksheets for children can be picked up at the Museum's reception or downloaded from here.

The ŠKODA Museum organises a number of cultural, educational and entertainment events for children - please see the current programme for details. The Children's Corner offers space for games and relaxation, including popular ŠKODA balance bikes.

The equipment of the (non-smoking) VÁCLAV Café/Restaurant includes child dining chairs and a children's corner, and the menu is designed to please both adults and children. The Museum shop offers a variety of products for children, e.g. colouring books, memory games, badges, etc. from the latest collections of ŠKODA promotional objects. The Museum's visitor-comfort equipment includes a nappy changing table, and the building is barrier-free, i.e. it is no problem to take a Museum tour with a pram or pushchair.

Tours are booked on +420 326 8 31134


Barrier-free access

Parking spaces for wheelchaired persons are right next to the Museum building. Although the main entrance is barrier-free, it is slightly uphill, which is why wheel-chaired visitors are recommended to use the door in the right sidewall of the main glazed foyer. This door can be opened by pressing a button on the wall.

Except for the sports-car and prototype depository, the engine gallery and the Hiero III exhibition room, the Museum premises are completely barrier-free. Wheelchairs are available in the reception area.

Sight-handicapped visitors

Sight-handicapped visitors are welcome. To a large extent, the Museum is lit by daylight, and we therefore recommend coming at times when the daylight intensity is highest. Our guides are trained to provide tactile tours. To make sure that a guide will be available, it is recommended to book visits for sight-handicapped persons in advance on +420 326 8 31134, 31135, 31137.

Large-font and Braille-alphabet books with a short text about the company founders and a description of 10 vehicles representing the most important production milestones are downloadable from the website and also available at the reception desk. The "Evolution" part of the presentation is designed to enable sight-handicapped visitors to touch and feel these vehicles and the founders' busts.
