This permanent exhibition presents visitors with the traditional knowledge and skills of medieval monasteries.

Visitors can look through an alchemist's kitchen and learn about how food was stored in the Middle Ages. Period quarters demonstrate how people lived during the Gothic and Renaissance periods, and you can even try historical clothing.

Another attraction is the herbal workshop and soap workshop, recently extended to include new interactive features. In the scriptorium, you can create your own stencil decoration, try writing with a quill, or have fun in the playroom with replicas of medieval toys, machines, and inventions.

For a spooky experience, visit the mysterious attic areas, where you'll witness a Danse Macabre, a Camera Obscura, and a large model of the historic center of this part of Český Krumlov.
