The museum lapidary is located in the former church cemetery by the Church of the Holy Trinity in Valašské Meziříčí. This listed half-timbered church is an example of provincial church architecture of the 16th century with extensions in the style of Baroque. In architectural morphology: the reverberations of the Gothic style are combined with deliberate references to Gothic style and with elements in the style of the Baroque.
The cemetery Church of Saint Trinity was first documented in 1605. The side chapel was built in 1754 and the wooden church nave, lined with a gallery on the outside, is from the same time period. An engraving of the knight Jan Žernovský of Žernoví on a tombstone inside is marked with the year 1585. In 1908, the church was going to be demolished, but thanks to Prof. E. Domluvil, it was saved and adapted for church services for grammar school students. There also used to be pilgrimages here on Trinity Sunday and church services would traditionally be held on this holiday.
In 1919, the cemetery around the church was closed. The church served its original purpose until the 1950s and in 1963 it was entrusted to the museum for preservation. The Wallachian Open Air Museum in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm had the roof repaired and installed a small tower on the church.
The National History Institute in Vsetín took it over in 1971. Renovation was finished in 1980, when the first lapidary exhibit was open. In the late 1990s, another major restoration was needed and the lapidarium was re-opened in 2001.
The Regional Wallachian Museum makes the renovated Church of the Holy Trinity available for rent. The space can be used for weddings, performances or other artistic or cultural events.
The museum rents out the premises but the ceremonies need to be arranged with the City Register Office in Valašské Meziříčí (Phone: 571 674 255 or 571 674 256). With the museum you can rent the church for a wedding by signing a simple contract.
