1. Technology of the production process - From Rabbit To Hat

In the first part of the exhibition you will gradually learn about the technological process of hat production. You will see and experience the transformation of the material at certain stages of processing. Authentic video demonstrations from individual factory production sections will draw you into a remarkable production process. You will also find important milestones and events connected with the tradition of hat making in the Nový Jičín area. In addition to the historical panel, you will get additional information from the world of hats in the projection corner, where you can start a film screening of your choice. Among other things, it offers a series of fairy tales for our youngest visitors. The exposition is complemented by exhibits of production machines.

The second part of the exhibition is devoted to the hats. On functional machines you will be shown creeping headgear and pressing mini-caps. Both adults and children can experience their own creativity and artistic talent. There will be a package with a reduced semi-finished product and decoration, from which you can make your own original souvenir. There is a children's play corner for the youngest visitors.

The final part of the exhibition will excite all hat lovers. A variety of hats, caps and accessories will be available in the rehearsal room to test and choose the most appropriate model. You can find out that a hat can be found on every head in a digital testing room. You can then send your photo with a hat via e-mail to your friends as a greeting.
