One of the reasons to come back to Brno was that we missed this museum last time.

We looked this museum a lot. There are many different exhibitions. Of course we liked the cars. Both the Lada's were a trip down memory lane for me. My best friends dad used to have a Lada shop.

Since I work in IT, the old computer stuff was great to see. The old game Room was a trip down memory lane as well.

The bottom floor, with the open turbines and aircraft engines was interesting to see as well.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, however, they are only able to speak Czech. That's something which applies to the whole museum. It's focus is strictly czech. As a result of which there is a huge exhibition about the Czech history and the falling off the iron curtain.

I rated it the maximum of 5 stars, even when there are some drawbacks for foreigners. What didn't catch my interest is surely interesting for others. The game Room could have been a bit more hands on. It would be so nice of there were a few arcades from the past. The experimental centre at the top floor really needs English information. Luckily I paid attention at school and could explain some to my son.

We spent around 3,5 hours in here on a hot day. It is advisable to go on a less hot day, since it is a pity to spent such day inside and the airco inside can't deal with such heat.

All in all, very nice experience.

Showing off the history of technology. Some of which could be part of your childhood memories (game boy, for example).

1. A history indeed stretching back thousands of years with ‘technology’ broadly defined. So here you’ll also get 19th century craftsmanship and axes and daggers and Victorinox specimens.

2. Look for the booths marked ‘information’ with a UK flag. That’s all the English you’ll get.

3. On the first floor there’s exhibitions on the much prized Grand Prix Brno with its motorcycles. Communist vehicles in the open hall.

4. On the second floor many themes are squashed into the same hall from vintage consoles to self-playing instruments. Staffer will turn those instruments on if you look eager enough.

5. A curious turn towards something more of ‘science museum’ happens on the third with games and activities for kids to demonstrate scientific facts. Find yourself behind glass doors – a clever design keeping the rest of the museum quiet.

6. An impressive collection of post-war vintage computers and switchboards.80's video games to play with.

7. Nokia 3310 on display in the café.

I am a bit biased, as I would always recommend anyone to check museums in the area, but this one is a must see for all nostalgics, engineering and technology fans out there. The ancestors of today's technology are on the display there, which makes a great place to take your kids to see.

The museum creates collections and has a scientific, cultural, educational and methodological function predominantly in Moravia and Silesia, but in the case of some fields, its scope of competence is statewide. One of the most interest exhibitions is the exhibition called Mechanical Models by Karel Šebela which was opened on June 13, 2017 and is to be found in the display called Mechanical Music Parlour. The display also includes a mechanical model of a rokoko parlour (Mozart and the Piano Player), of a clockmaker’s and a shomaker’s workshops, a model of a pavilion with astronomers and telescopes and a few other exhibits. One of the most perfect model is a fully functional and faithful to original replica of the popular astronomical clock (named "Pražský orloj") which is located in the Old Town Square in Prague.

We visited the Prague Tech Mu last year and what this may lack in size, it more than makes up for in quality. Three floors packed full of well arranged and interesting exhibits. We don't speak Czech but found one very fluent guide, two others who did well and well written sheets in other galleries. It was quiet today as the children are back at school and the guides were eager to assist.

We didn't have any trouble finding it - right opposite the tram stop that bears it's name.

There is a good selection of equipment for the blind and I realise I'm old now I've found my first mainframe computer in here. My daughter thinks it's hilarious.

My only regret is that we had a plane to catch so didn't see the MIGs out the back.

This was quite a nice museum, and it was larger than I expected. There were a wide variety of topics, so most everyone will find something they are interested in. For example, there are old cars, huge turbine machinery, Braille printing, instrument mechanics, and metallurgy, among others. A few exhibits had full English translations, but most did not, and for those, the only English was a floating info sheet with general information about the topic. This place would be really great for kids because it has little activities for them all over, plus a big experimentation/play area on the top story.

A little bit old. Re-innovation required. A lot of interesting technical exhibits and so intrusive staff.
Old cars and old computers are my favorite.

It's a very nice exhibition, not too big, has a wide range of things to show. But most of any visitors time will be spent in the floor where you can try stuff" and "play", tat part is very entertaining and fun.

The Brno Technical Museum has a lot of potential, sporting an interesting collection of Czech cars and motorcycles. However, as a foreigner, I really felt the absence of proper English translations of tags and item cards.
