22-3-18. After a Article on Radio Praha. Was Interested Enough to Visit the Museum of Karel Zeman.

Nicely Situated Under Charles Bridge. Museum is a Good Mix of Information & Interactive. Ideal for Family,s with Inquisitive Children.

After Study in Advertising ( France ). Zeman Returned to His Native Bohemia. Where at Bata, ( In Zlin ). Got Interested in Animation. Czech Excellence in Animation. Often Starts with Puppet Work. With Zeman it was no Exception.
He was Influenced by the Great Jan Svankmajer.

Zeman,s Fine Film,s Include " The Fabulous World Of Jules Verne " & " Baron Munchhausen ".
There is also a Wonderful Gift Shop. Where you can Purchase. Zeman Films on DVD, Books & T Shirts.

Zeman,s Work went on to Inspire Many People. Like the Film Director Tim Burton.
