It is founded by the town of Volary and is located in one of Volary's historic Alpine-style timbered houses. This specific architecture is quite unique in our country and once gave Volary the nickname "Alpine village". It was brought to Volary in the 16th century by mountain cattlemen who came to Šumava from Tyrol or Styria, and even in their new home they kept their original traditions, including the construction of the houses.
The museum is open during the main tourist season from May to the end of September and has permanent exhibitions, with new exhibitions added each season, which are regularly renewed. The permanent exhibitions include exhibitions on "Death March", "Old Volary in Photography", "Golden Trail", "Snippets of History". At present they are supplemented by new exhibitions on the theme "Railway Office" and "From the Parish Depositories".
Visiting days during the season are from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (with a half-hour lunch break). Closed on Mondays. In addition to visiting the exhibitions, you can also buy promotional materials about Volary and its surroundings and get basic tourist information. The entrance fee is rather symbolic, plus children, students, seniors and groups have a discount. You will need about an hour to visit the museum.
Just a few hundred metres from our guesthouse in the centre of Volary at Česká 71 you will find the Volary Museum. From the guesthouse, turn right and from Soumarská Street turn into Česká Street.
