Summer Glass Workshop 2024

Creative dialogue between artists and glass craftsmen, current approaches in glass creation, experimental technology in practice, inspiration for students of the glass school and their teachers - this is how the 13th year of the glass symposium Summer Glass Workshop, which will be held from 17 to 19 June 2024 in Železný Brod.

LSD 2023 Exhibition


The results of the Summer Glass Workshop 2023 symposium are now on display in the glass exhibition. You will see the works of foreign glass artists and the results of renowned Czech art glass artists. Kari Mølstad was inspired by the Norwegian landscape in her work. Jeanne-Sophie Aas uses mainly the optical magic of crystal glass. Martin Grosman in collaboration with Detesk made demonic glass jewellery. Milan Krajíček has worked originally with moulding and extrusion of glass mass, thus creating stunning glass objects. Jan Exnar worked mainly with a sibral mould and created monumental crystal objects. Among the symposium participants were also Soňa Třeštíková and David Suchopárek and Ingrid Račková (Studio IRDS), and not to give too much away, come and see their works in person.

The Summer Glass Workshop is traditionally held in close cooperation with SUPŠS Železný Brod, where most of the art objects were created.

New exhibition: a first-class visual experience


Our new exhibition of art glass promises a first-class visual experience for all visitors. In the realization of the new exposition, we put emphasis on finding the most optimal lighting conditions, which are essential for the exposition of glass exhibits. The right light is the most important factor for the appreciation of glass exhibits.

Cristal Hotel

The exhibition summarizes the more than 80-year history of the Cristal Hotel in Železný Brod and thus provides an insight into one of the landmarks of Železný Brod, which was the cultural and social center of the city in the past and has currently been closed to the public for several years.

You can visit the exhibition in the ethnographic exhibition in Běliště until June 30, 2024.

Pour Féliciter 2024

In 2023, we faced significant challenges. Our museum has been undergoing a thorough interior renovation, which is now nearing its conclusion. We are delighted to have passed this challenging stage with flying colours, thanks in part to your support. We would like to thank you for your patience and loyalty during this challenging period.


We look forward to seeing you at the grand opening of the museum on March 1, 2024 at 5 pm. Join us in celebrating the completion of this phase of the Connected by Glass project!


We wish you a peaceful and joyful Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the newly renovated museum!

Christmas market in Běliště 2023


This year, the traditional sales event with a cultural program will take place from Thursday, November 30 to Sunday, December 3, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

And what can you look forward to this year? From Thursday to Sunday, Mrs. Karla Srbová will demonstrate decorating her Jílov gingerbreads, with which she won the Regional Product of the Jizera Mountain label. Mrs. Stáňa Mlejnková, Alena Matějková and Věra Poláková will also demonstrate their craftsmanship in the production of Christmas ornaments, patchwork and lace. On Friday, from 4 p.m., the students of the swing orchestra of the Basic Art School will perform. Young artists with their wind instruments will perform pieces studied under the guidance of teacher Rudy Müller. The Andílek family center will prepare an Advent spiral in front of the house, which on Saturday evening the children's visitors will be able to light up with their own handmade candlesticks. We start at 4:30 p.m., when it will be already dark outside. We recommend that children bring candles and apples from home. And, of course, children will not miss out on a fairy tale. On Sunday, starting at 11 a.m., puppeteer Ruda Hancvencl will perform a series of classic fairy tales in a modern adaptation called "In one forest, in one house" on the grounds of Běliště. The Mozaika Leisure Center and the Andílek Family Center will provide creative workshops for children's visitors throughout the duration of the markets. Come and soak up the Advent atmosphere, choose gifts from regional artisans and workshops, support the activities of the Železnobrodsk Disabled Association with your purchase, taste cakes, Christmas cookies, tunnels, pretzels, strengthen yourself with pickled ermine or toast and warm yourself up with Bělišťák, soup or warm cider! We look forward to your visit.
