Kinskeho zahrada tvori smichovskou cast petrinskych sadu, oddelenou Hladovou zdi. Byvala zde vinice a dum plaskeho klastera, po husitskych bourich zpustle misto s nazvem Vrabcovna, pozdeji opet vinice a zelinarska zahrada. Roku 1798 koupila tyto pozemky vdova knezna Ruzena Kinska. Jeji syn Rudolf knize Kinsky zde v letech 1827-31 nechal vybudovat prekrasny anglicky park ojedinele cisteho pojeti podle projektu Frantiska Honela. Tento park byl rozsiren a upraven v roce 1848 a 1860-61 architektem Bedrichem Wunscherem. V roce 1831 byla dokoncena stavba klasicistniho letohradku videnskym architektem Jindrichem Kochem, provedeny modelace terenu, vysadby a vyrazena 380 m dlouha stola k napajeni dvou nove zalozenych rybniku s vodopadem mezi nimi - na svou dobu unikatni technicke dilo. Budovani zahrady dokoncila manzelka Rudolfa Kinskeho Vilemina po jeho smrti nasledkem padu z kone. Zahrada byla tehdy dvakrat tydne pristupna na vstupenky, ktere se prodavaly v palaci Kinskych.

Potomek zakladatelu chtel zahradu rozparcelovat a prodat ji na stavbu cinzovnich domu, prazska obec nastesti roku 1901 zahradu koupila, zpristupnila verejnosti a v roce 1908 znovu kultivovala. Letohradek Kinskych pote zapujcila Narodopisne spolecnosti ceskoslovanske pro exoponaty z velke Narodopisne vystavy, konane v Praze roku 1895, a tak vzniklo Narodopisne muzeum, otevrene verejnosti od roku 1903. Zahrada se mela stat velkolepymi "narodopisnymi sady, ale pak doslo jen k umisteni nekterych exponatu. Jednim z nich je drevena zvonice z Dolnich Bojanovic u Hodonina a barokni pamatka z 18. stoleti - bozi muka s hranolovymi slunecnimi hodinami a vytvarnou vyzdobou ve forme moroveho sloupu. V dolni casti zahrady byval vystavni pavilon SVU Manes, pozdeji zbourany, v nemz se roku 1902 konala slavna vystava del francouzskeho sochare Augusta Rodina a nekolika dalsich. K 10. vyroci pripojeni Podkarpatske Rusi k Ceskoslovensku sem byl v roce 1929 premisten dreveny recko-katolicky kostelik sv. Michala z roku 1750 z Medvedovcu u Mukaceva.

Od ledna 2004 probehla rekonstrukce casti zahrady podle projektu architektu Magdaleny Dandove a Jaromira Kosnara na naklady hl. m. Prahy, ktera se tykala parkovych cest v hornim svahu. Byla provedena instalace noveho parkoveho osvetleni a mobiliare. Zahrada byla tez obohacena o vodni komponenty vyuzivajici vodu z podzemnich stol. Opraveny jsou i schody v dolni casti Kinskeho zahrady. Deti si mohou hrat na hristi plnem atrakci nedaleko dolniho vchodu, dalsi hriste je v horni casti zahrady. Letohradek Kinskych venovalo Mesto Narodnimu muzeu, ktere zajistilo rekonstrukci budovy a pripravilo od 1. 10. 2005 novou narodopisnou expozici Musaion.

Expozice Musaion je zamerena na lidovou kulturu Ceske republiky (hmotna i duchovni kultura, lidove umeni, sbirky lidoveho odevu, bydleni, hospodarstvi, zvyky) a propojena s zivym provozovanim lidovych remesel, rukodelnych technik, pravidelnou folklorni cinnosti, edukacnimi programy, odbornym a spolecenskym setkavanim priznivcu lidove kultury.

(Zpracovano podle materialu Prazske informacni sluzby a Narodniho muzea.)

The garden was established by Count Rudolf Kinsky in 1825 on the southern side of Petrin hill in the centre of Prague as a romantic landscape park. The garden was bought by a city of Smichov and opened to public at the very beginning of the XX century. A 17 hectare park is formed of two parts - a pit with villa where the Ethnic museum is situated, and the hillside with two ponds and rocky formations.
