Summary/Abstract: The text presents contemporary history in regional museums in the Czech Republic, based on an analysis of eleven expositions. In the introduction, it provides a basic overview of the approaches to museum reflection in the Czech Republic. In the actual analysis it examines the extent to which the museums exhibit contemporary history and what are the milestones of their exposition. Second, it focuses on the question of whether local museums present history from a nationwide or local perspective. The text puts forward normative proposals for exhibiting contemporary history in the regional context.
