The newest temporary exhibition currently on in the Ethnographic Museum in Prague is titled: Bandits – Heroes or Criminals? The question is whether the bandits really stole from the rich to give to the poor, or what did they really do? At this exhibition you can follow a real group of bandits and see their belongings, objects and what their life was like. The exhibition is supplemented with examples of later use of bandit imagery in naive and folklore art of the 20th century, and also remembers famous Czech robber Václav Babinský.
