The building of the former village mayor`s house in Kravaře - Víska makes up a part of the Museum of National History in Česká Lípa.

The Mayor`s house was built in 1797 for the local Mayor, Václav Kerner, and belongs among the biggest timbered constructions in Bohemia. Five chambers upstairs and the three-storey loft were designed especially for hop drying.

After an extensive reconstruction, an exposition was made accessible to the general public in 1986, focusing on the development of vernacular architecture and housing in North Bohemia. Nowadays, a significant part of the exposition is dedicated to the examples of painted furniture dating back to the period from the end of the 18th century to the middle of the 19th century. The oldest cupboard on display dates back to 1761. The exposition itself is made up of several parts. In the former stable part of the house, there are photographs documenting the history of the Mayor's house and the village as well. The exposition in the upstairs hall depicts the basic signs of rural constructions in North Bohemia. It is supplemented with maps, maquettes and models. The space of the original upstairs chambers is used to present samples of farming tools and craftsmanship, and in part, it is dedicated to painted furniture and religious art.

Languages: English, German, Russian have to be preordered in the District Museum.
