Used, devastated and restored: The role of museums in the revitalization of nature and landscape; Explore the UNESCO-listed mining region of the Ore Mountains and museums in Ústí and Most
Mining technologies, mountain sciences, the retrieval and processing of a wide variety of ores from the 12th century until the 21st... all located concisely within one region stretching over two countries – the Czech Republic and Germany. Learn more about how the landscape of the Ore Mountains Mining Region, one of the latest Czech additions to UNESCO’s World Heritage Lists, was used and even exploited from the Middle Ages to the 21st century, and how museums can cooperate to revitalise the area as well as to help preserve unique mining technologies. Experience an adventurous visit to Bílina Mine (in cooperation with the Regional Museum and Gallery in Most), and then continue to the Municipal Museum of Ústí nad Labem to explore the tense historical relationship between local Czech and German citizens.
