See the life of a genius who walked the streets of Brno
Sep 2019
The museum demonstrates the pieces of life of Mendel. There are originals and copies of the pages from his notebook. Exciting. I wish it was a bit more fancy.

A great collection!
Oct 2019
We had the Sunday afternoon free in Brno recently and this was a really pleasant way to spend the afternoon. A really informative collection and something that impacts us all. Not too long, not too short. They've also tried to make it attractive to children with the walk-through of genetics later in the collection. It's sad that he didn't get credit for his work at the time, but glad he's still being honoured to this day in such a vital area of health.

A fantastic museum that I could not miss while in the city.
Oct 2019
This museum is located within the grounds of the university and grounds where Gregor Mendel did his famous experiments on peas and plants. The museum is not actually that big, but about the right size for an introduction on genetics. Nearly a third of the museum is dedicated to Mendelian inheritance, which really takes me back to my school days. The remainder of the museum is split between the life of Mendel and more information about genetics, inheritance and some general biology.

A fantastic museum that I could not miss while in the city. The museum is a great way to honour a man ahead of his times and brought us into the modern age of genetics.

MENDEL is my friend
Jul 2019 • Friends
Milan Nemec is a Brno actor and he is the star of the dramatic performance telling the story about Johann Gregor Mendel. The city of Brno organizes a big festival devoted to Mendel and his scientific discoveries. If you do not take part in the popular event held in July including concerts, workshops, lessons, guided tours and videomapping, take your time to walk round the Augustinian abbey and breathe the same air as Mendel did. Milan and me are Brno patriots and we invite you to be inspired by the hardworking man, so called father of genetics.

Is a small museum but is very well presented the collection: good videos, pictures, the original pages of the discovery of the basics of genetics, games to play to understand it better, and more. Very well documented.

1. Oɴᴇ ᴍɪɢʜᴛ ᴡᴏɴᴅᴇʀ why there has to be two Mendel attractions in one city. You'll find the two
Dec 2018 • Solo
... overlapping in themes (a timeline on Mandel, for example) but it turns out the city-centred Mendelianum is more focused on advanced genomics. Instead, this university museum walks you through Mendel’s life stages to great details, room by room unravelling his curiosities in multiple scientific fields.

2. Meteorology was one of Mandel’s persistent interests, having kept detailed measurements of Brno’s weather in his notebook.

3. Mandel presented his hybrid plant research in 1865 but the results were largely ignored. It wasn’t until 1900 that his work was rediscovered – this time laying the foundation of heredity research.

4. This is the original place Mandel did his research, in the garden of the abbey where he had a greenhouse for many of his favourite plant species. Unfortunately, the house was subsequently burnt down.

The museum was originally chosen because we still had time left and what can go wrong with a nice museum? It was one of the better museum visits we had. Starting with a multimedia presentation, followed by a lot of touchable stuff. Nice questions regarding basic bio-chemistry on wooden circles with the answer written on the walls behind them.
The whole museum looks like it was made with school classes in mind, giving the teacher an easy way to challenge their students.

Once upon a time there was a princess and her life was not a fairy tale
Sep 2018 • Solo
Yes, the princess named Richenza was beautiful, but she did not live an easy life. She was born on the very first of September 1288 in Poland and she became the Czech queen in 1303 as she was fifteen. Only two years after the royal wedding this queen became a widow for the first time. Then she was married again and her second husband died soon afterwards. In 1318 this exqueen moves to the city of Brno. She decided to built a new church and a monastery, where she is burried. In the same monastery used to work Johann Gregor Mendel and you could meet young Leos Janacek there too. Nowadays there is a museum. If you are not a fan of history, you could enjoy a cup of coffee in their café. Have a good time anyway!

You can reach it easily from the centrum, it's a good program if you like biology. Does not takes too much time, 1 hour is enough. It's only for 40 kc.
