The visit of the museum can be crowned by the purchase in the shop offering LEGO sets that are not commonly sold in the shops in the Czech Republic.
Start of the museum
The idea of museum originates to the beginning of year 2012, when the collection of the private collector became so big that it was not possible to have it displayed and stored at home.
The idea was to present and please the public by the whole collection. The first choice of location was Český Krumlov, but the collector heard about the possible rent of the non-residential premises in the historical centre of the town Tábor, he entered the tender for these premises and his project was chosen by the city council. The fast and quick reconstruction of the premises and also building of the exhibition and interiors followed. And so it was possible to open the museum for the public in the end of July 2012.
