History of Rýmařov

In the first hall of the museum, the visitor can see several finds related to the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. However, they mostly do not belong to Rýmařov by origin, but come from different parts of northern Moravia. The oldest object found in Rýmařov is a Roman coin from the 1st century A.D. In the same room finds from the suburban settlement are also presented. They are divided according to different phases of settlement - Slavic and later German. The history of Rýmařov continues in the next hall, where finds from the founding of the town (1370s) to the 15th century are presented. Among other things, there are showcases dedicated to the beginnings of the city, the Hrádek fortress, and also the nearby Strálek Castle. In the third hall, the visitor can learn about the Renaissance period in the Rýmařov Region. Most of the exhibits relate to the castle in Janovice and the then owners of the Janovice manor - the Hoffman family of Grünbüchl. The exposition continues with the 18th and 19th centuries in the corridor.
