Overview

This new attraction takes an offbeat look at the phenomenon called "Bigbeat" as Czech and Slovak rock and roll was known, from 1956 to 1972. Dozens of Czech-made electric guitars and basses are displayed alongside album covers, newspaper and magazine articles (one West German magazine heralded the advent of a group they dubbed "The Red Beatles"). Headphones available in the exhibition allow visitors to hear the greatest hits of the "Bigbeat" era. The exhibition is a part of the Prague 2000 European City of Culture festivities. If you fancy yourself a rock expert, but you've never heard of George and the Beethoven or Blue Effect, this is where to pick up some trivia to amaze your friends.
