To commemorate the short stay of pedagogist Jan Amos Komensky in Horni Branna before his exile in 1628, a monument was established in the palace in Horni Branna in September 1957. A memorial tablet made of bronze by academic sculptor Karel Pesat from Jablonec nad Nisou was installed in the palace's front wall. The monument is often visited by teachers and Czech and foreign tourists. One of the rooms has been used since 1999 as an exhibition on the life and work of the writer, painter and teacher Josef Sir, who was born in Horni Branna in 1859. A guided tour of the palace is available upon prior request.
