Didn't quite know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. You need to get a ticket but it's free. The art is in chronological order from 14th century till 19th century, mostly from the region, though some Flemish, Dutch and Italian artists also contribute. It starts out with a lot of religious works and then changes to landscapes and such.... More

If you visit the website of this institution you will see that the collection is distributed in different venues. I visit the two of them that are very close to each other: Prazak Palace (Modern and Contemporary Art) and the Museum of Applied Arts. There is another major venue with Art until the XIX century that I did not visit.... More

Tells the story of the history of the area including the liberation of Moravia in 1945. Exhibits include the end of the Reign of the Swastika and war testimonies. We were fortunate to see an exhibition of Asian Puppets which were being shown here which lightened the mood. Very interesting and informative display.

It is a good place especially in a rainy day to go. You can see all the show. Entry fee is acceptable.

Interesting but a bit inaccessible if you can't read Czech. They had an English language brochure but it was minimal. If you really want to understand the exhibits, it would be worth hiring a guide. The 1945 exhibit was understandable if you know your history even without Czech. The rocks and minerals and chemical elements was beyond me. But I... More

The gallery consists of several buildings, so at first you have to choose what you want to see! There are three builidings right in the city centre: Prazak Palace (modern/contemporary art), Governor's Palace (art up to 19th century, a really nice collection of medieaval art) and Museum of applied arts (the name speaks for itself). All these have their permanent... More

My husband and I visited the three museum sites located in Brno proper. We purchased a combi ticket that we could use for all of the museums over a two-day period. We found the staff to be extraordinarily helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the permanent collection (especially the selection of Czech cubism) as well as the special exhibits up at... More

The Moravian Gallery oversees five facilities, four in Brno and one near Jihlava. In the centre of Brno, you will find the three buildings which make up the core of the Gallery's collections. While the three buildings are separate, they are within easy walking distance of each other. The contemporary art collection is located at the gallery's headquarters at Husova... More

Of course it depends on the exhibits they have on the show, but in general the place is well located and its organization very reasonable. When you find an exhibit you want to go for, then do not hesitate and go!
