Services for researchers

The archive of our museum contains many historical materials, documents, and photographs linked to the history of Kopřivnice municipality and the Tatra automobile works. The pricelist of our services for researchers is available upon request – write us an e-mail.


Archive and research room of the Technical Museum 

The archive and the research room of the TATRA Technical Museum focuses on collecting, recording, cataloguing, and digitization of historical documentation pertaining to the history of the automobile works, its leading figures, and events. Our long-time efforts include also digitization of our documents.

On a regular basis we collaborate with researchers from the Czech Republic and abroad. Most frequently we check the origin of historical vehicles that we can identify using the chassis number or engine number against a record in the dealership books (name of the first owner, place, date, type of the vehicle, chassis, etc). This is a paid service. We also collaborate with classic car collectors and restorers who approach us to source information or copies of the technical documentation – either we own it, or we would direct you to other institutions. We also love collaborating with eyewitnesses or university students.
