The project is renovation and extension of the Auersperg Palace , which is located in the heart of the protected historical city centre. The palace and the plot have a very rich history dating from prehistoric areas, to roman and medieval times. Each era added something to the building.
Through the history the purpose of the palace changed several times so the existing organisation of the plan was not suitable to host museum programme. The spaces were labyrinth-ic and disconnected.
The competition entry proposed a spiral walk of the visitor through the exhibition spaces and proposed addition was connecting element between wings of the palace.
Open: Tuesday-Sunday 10:00-18:00. Guided tours at 11:00, 14:00 (in English), 17:00.
Organised tours of the palace are at 11:00 and 17:00. The Museum is closed on December 25th and 26th and January 1st.
