The first step towards the founding of Ethnographic Museum was the Ethnographic Exhibition of Pilsen in 1912. The objects from this exhibition became the basis of the collection which was transported to the historical Gerlach’s House in Drevena Street, where the museum was opened to the public for the first time in 1915. The main initiator was Ladislav Labek, collector and the ethnographer, who also became the first manager of the museum. Due to the growing collection, more room was afforded to the museum in the house of the former Chotesov Monastery in the main square during the 1930s. In 1948, the museum became part of the West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen. In March 2000, a new exhibition was opened, that presents municipal interiors from the Gothic period to the beginning of the 20th century. The second part is dealing with the life in the country, presents rural chambers or an original „black kitchen“ from the beginning of the 19th centrury. The exhibition is rounded off with folk costumes and customary objects from West Bohemia. A unique element of the exhibition is an antique apothecary shop.
