The museum is in the Spilberk castle. There are different exhibitions, from history to the todays Brno. A lot of artifects give you a nice overview also about the life in Brno in the past.

I wished that there are better english signages or volunteer-led tours of this place. I just have no idea what I am really looking at.

It is good museum, has many kinds of monuments, with organized way. But the way to reach, dosn't seems as entrance! It needs more care and attractive signs. Any way it is good for who like monuments.

This is part of the Castle feature, you can decide whether to do just the prison or incorporate the museum and tower. In our opinion there are many better attractions in Brno which give a better idea, the dummies have seen better days !!

Very nice historic preview. The only thing I was missing is some person I may ask and discuss historical question, in case of complicated Czech and Moravian history.

There are often very interesting and at other times also less interesting exhibitions - check the web or other info sources when in Brno or before planning a trip and then decide.

This is a history of the town but specially the prison. Interesting but I think children would struggle and it really is expensive , which showed by how few visitors there were.
