Welcome in the Museum Fotoatelier Seidel! In unique place where tradition of photography sprang up in the 19th century, in place where Time stood still.

The Josef and Frantisek Seidels' studio exposition will surprise by its authenticity, its wealth of unique period images, post-cards and glass-plate negatives, and the well-preserved, functioning cameras, enlargers and darkroom equipment. This outstanding collection is enhanced even further by Seidel's personal notes, diaries, cutomer records, and the original furniture and fixtures in the house.
