Absolutely interesting and must see exhibition in Brno. If you go with young children you should tell them before what they will see. There are crypts of capuchins monks lying dead behind the glass. It is very captivating to see their facial expression in the time of death and to think that one day we all look like them...

It was a very educative and moving experience seeing the vaults and crypts of capucines. Exhibition is quite compact (just a few rooms/crypts) however definitely worth visiting. You can learn a bit of Brno's history and see mummies of capucines who were 'buried' there. Must see in Brno!

We found the capuchin crypt, just by accident as we walked past the entrance to it one night. Located just off the main cabbage market square, the Capuchin crypt is an interesting attraction. There was a small fee of 70 crowns per adult to enter and a photography fee of 30 crowns if you want to take pictures. The crypt... More

This concluded my Brno-walking tour that had started with Ossuary, but all those philosophical, ethical and other deep thoughts that take over when in some way getting in touch with the big unknown, were way stronger here. The tour is self-guided, so you can read/go at your own pace, taking your time. Although the large coffin of the baron in... More

Although the fee to enter is probably too high given how quickly you can go through this site, it is worth a visit if you are in Brno for a couple of days.

It's a short tour where you're able to see many mummified monks and think about how fast and fragile is life.

It was only a couple of dollars US. Well worth it. It also helps the brothers help keep it open. Cool if history is your thing
