Description The study presented analyzes the share of representatives of the Czech, or Czechoslovak, museology on the activities of the International Committee for Museology operating within the International Council of Museums, which, for more than 40 years, has been a major influencer of the museological discourse. It focuses mainly on the first decade of its existence; in addition to the Czech influence, the subsequent participation in the individual activities, organization and thought formation of this association, where Jan Jelínek, Zbyněk Zbyslav Stránský and Vinoš Sofka played a significant role, became a subject of interest. The research used not only foreign publications devoted to the history of the committee, but also so far not much reflected period materials and information sources of an archival nature.
