About the Museum

How it started

The unique Museum of the Czechoslovak Legions was the result of many years of research by Colonel Milan Žuffa-Kunč.

In almost thirty years of his work, he has interviewed countless memorials and still living legionnaires. They have revealed their war stories to him, and often presented him with authentic weapons, uniforms and other artifacts of the time. 

Come and see the unique story of our history in our Olomouc exhibition.
