Long Description:
Puvodne gotický dum byl renesancne prestaven po požáru v roce 1561. Jeho stavitel byl ovlivnen italským renesancním stavitelstvím. Vystavet jej nechal Jan Broum z Chomutovic a posléze ve stavbe pokracoval Jan Krž z Plotišt (erby obou majitelu a jejich manželek se dochovaly v prujezdu domu). Pozdeji byl dum klasicistne a empírove upraven. V dome v jeho historii sídlil královský purkrabí. Pozdeji zde sídlilo Chrámové družstvo, které dodávalo zarízení, nábytek a sochy do ceských a moravských kostelu. Koncem 20. let 20. století bylo na prucelí obnoveno puvodní renesancní psaníckové sgrafito. Nyní je zde Galerie M a ve sklepení Muzeum strašidel.
