Visit the museum at a non-traditional night time. Come and have fun, explore and maybe even be a little scared. This time under the baton of the famous cartoonist and caricaturist Jiří Winter Neprakta. There will be guided tours of the museum and creative workshops not only for children. You can try what it is like to draw a comic strip or make up a cartoon anecdote. You will also learn how to make a Japanese binding so you can bind your creations into a small book. The programme includes a tour of two exhibitions - "With Neprakta in the Museum" and "People, Fates, Events" - Františkovy Lázně in photographs from the 1920s and 1930s.
