Birthday parties

Organize an amazing birthday celebration for your children in a fantasy world! You can assemble a unique programme, choosing from many options. It’s up to you what you choose!

An experienced guide will introduce you to the mysteries of film making, special effects and film tricks. Using examples in our exhibition, they will explain how the magic of Karel Zeman’s famous films such as Journey to the Beginning of Time was made and tell behind-the-scenes stories from the film sets. Children will surely enjoy our interactive areas and treasure-hunting games specially designed for our museum. As souvenirs, children can take photos and videos like on the sets of Zeman’s films, as well as self-made badges.

What does a birthday programme look like?

The arrival, welcome and production of the birthday badges: our guide will welcome the birthday child and everyone will create their own thematic or hand-painted birthday badge. A tour of the Karel Zeman Museum accompanied by the commentary of our experienced guide will introduce the children to the secrets of Karel Zeman’s film production and his films, for example, Journey to the Beginning of Time and Invention for Destruction. Children will love the exhibition environment where everything is designed for the pleasure of interaction. There will be also a motivational game prepared for them, at the end of which they find a treasure (the trilobite from the Journey to the Beginning of Time or the submarine from Invention for Destruction). The guided tour and game will be adjusted to suit the age of the children.

In a creative design workshop, the children can use their imagination to create an original artifact – a lamp made from film strips, their own “stolen airships”, postcards decorated using the lino-cut technique, matte-paintings with dinosaurs or birthday masks made from film strips. In all of which, they will be guided by an experienced tutor who will explain the production processes involved and provide them with all the materials necessary.

Animation workshops in which children become animators and, in two hours, make their own animated film.

The spectacular cruise in the ElektroNemo on the Devil’s Canal/Čertovka and Vltava River, which lets children experience the magical atmosphere of the most romantic part of Prague from the water. Just take a seat and live the adventure! We recommend using the cruise as an opportunity for a birthday celebration. Take advantage of the great atmosphere and have cake and drink a toast while on board! We are able to arrange a small table for the cake. The capacity of the boat is 26 persons, the cruise lasts 45 minutes and includes guided commentary by the captain.

Free entertainment includes the coloring of a gypsum trilobite or submarine, refreshment, congratulations and an opportunity to give presents to the birthday child. It is also possible to screen the short film Mr. Prokouk.
