Worth a visit, but there wasn't a ton to see. Glad I stopped by, but don't strain yourself to get there.

The old town hall houses a number of small but interesting exhibits. This has a gothic portal and a number of turrets built above it. The middle one was deliberately built leaning over to symbolise the crookedness of the person who had hired the builder, but then would not pay for the work. Below the portal was a replica model...

There is an alligator hanging from the ceiling in the entrance, and the building is nice. There also is the information center.

The Old Town Hall with its tower, bent Gothic decoration on the entrance and random crocodile suspended from the roof is a must when visiting Brno. Go up the tower and explore the courtyard. Fascinating. Visited in sep 2011.
