The exposition displays guild-made trunks, pottery, ferrules (cases), signboards and objects that give testimony to the fact that in the 16th and 17th centuries, Jindřichův Hradec was one of the greatest cities of Bohemia with well developed trade and crafts-trades. The most important was the drapery guild, with other wealthy guilds including tanners, butchers, blacksmiths, locksmiths, millers, bakers, confectioners; and of further importance were the masons, carpenters, potters, stove-builders and other tradesmen, which the exposition describes.
