A large part of the exhibition deals with repression against music and use of music for policial ends in the socialist Czech Republic before the democratic elections, but the exhibition is even going back to the revolutions of 1848 highlighting the links between music and politics.

Exhibited objects include records, manuscripts, documents, personal effects, works of art and illustrate the impact of music in a given period.
