As a Czech dissident, Jan Palach protested Soviet invasion and communist government in Czechoslovakia in 1968 via self-immolation.

The Palach Museum will be located at the house where Palach was born in the small town of Vsetaty, and will transform the space into a triangular, two-story labyrinth. The project will additionally feature a garden space for calm contemplation.
