Železná Ruda

Museum of Šumava

The exposition is located in the house built by Jiří Kryštof Mikuláš Abele in 1877. Most of the exhibits come from the family possessions and collections of the Abele glass-makers. The glass objects on display represent the production of the Abele glassworks. Upon entering the ground floor exhibition you can admire the tools and instruments used by glassmakers and glassblowers and many valuable objects such as, e.g., the drink set from cut glass decorated with gold. You can also learn the history of the former Debrnický castle. The portraits of the Abele family members are placed along both sides of the staircase taking you to the first floor, where you can find the follow up exhibition of glass from the 19th century and from the first half of the 20th century. The most precious items are goblets from clear cut glass decorated with blue coat and cut. The next room shows the typical 19th century townhouse interior with some china and tin dishes. And finally you will be smitten with the room devoted to the hammer craft business where you can find the technical equipment of the old Šumava hammers.
