Kohout's Court

Městské muzeum
The entire complex was originally an enclosed yeoman's court, built in the years 1736-1738 on early Baroque foundations by F. A. Berger, a clerk working for Count F. A. Špork. Of the original homestead, three buildings remain, The main building and the granary are connected by an entrance gate with Berger’s emblem and monogram. The place above the passage is decorated with a relief of St. Florian. On the gallery, between John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, . there is a statue of Mary Immaculate The granary, as the name suggests, was used to store grain in the past, and thus performed a very important function for the town.

Kohoutův Dvůr probably acquired its name in the mid-19th century, when it was adapted for inhabitation by contemporary owner Alois Kohout. At present, the Kohoutův Dvůr premises contain the town museum. Since the year 2015, the main building’s first floor contains an exhibition documenting the history of the town and the textile industry in the Dvůr Králové region, while since the year 2013 the second floor contains an exhibition devoted to traditional Christmas decoration production. Since the year 1998, the newly-renovated Granary building contains a gallery and a lecture and exhibition hall. The complex also contains a third building, which was once a stables. The courtyard is dominated by a stone Baroque well.

The Town Museum is found in the map portal here
