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.

The text puts forward normative proposals for exhibiting contemporary history in the regional context.
