We remind the researchers of the fact that the study of the Department of History of Music / Moravian Museum will be closed during summer holiday from July 1 to August 31, 2019. The usual opening hours will start on September 3, 2019.

A new ordering system for researchers will be introduced. Since May 2014 collection items of the Department of History of Music will be submitted to researchers only after filling in properly the order form available in the study room or following an explicit request of the researcher sent per post or electronic mail (or phone) to the Department of History of Music / Moravian Museum. The contact address is available on its website. 

The request should contain the name and surname of the researcher, the signature of the collection item, the author and the title of the document as well as the date when the item should be submitted for study. The collection items will be ready on the next opening day of the study room at the earliest. 

If the request sent in electronic or written form does not contain all necessary data or if the formulation of the request is unclear, imprecise or not concrete the request will be considered as informative and only those items will be prepared for study that can be unequivocally identified.

The researcher can be provided with no more than 5 collection items at one time. 15 collection items at the most can be ordered for one study day.
