Museum of the Infant Jesus of Prague
The museum is situated inside the church and entrance is free of charge. To get to it, you go through the door to the right of the main altar and climb up a spiral staircase to the first floor. On the stairway is a series of full-size artistic photographs of the grace-giving statue of Jesus in costumes in different liturgical colours.
In the museum itself a series of valuable objects connected with the cult is on display: chalices, pictures, crosses, sculptures, and especially part of the valuable collection of clothing that makes up the wardrobe of the Infant Jesus. Visitors can also see one of the crowns of the Infant Jesus of Prague and a video showing the Carmelite sisters changing the clothes of the statue of Jesus.
The ancient tradition of dressing the grace-giving statue of the Infant Jesus is intended to bring Jesus closer to the faithful as a real human being. It also helps us to experience the closeness of Jesus. Most of the outfits on display are gifts of thanksgiving. The statue, representing Jesus as a simple child, is dressed in a white alb and royal robes to express the thought that is common to all Christians, that this child is a king of the house of David, and, what is more, that Jesus is Son of God and God himself, King of Kings and Lord of Lords… More
