Worth the journey from the cente.
Oct 2020
Most of the time there was just us two in the museum (just missed a large group of schoolkids) so no problem looking at the exhibits undisturbed.
Good displays, and the full size mammoth is impressive, but most information is only in Czech.
The replica cave paintings I enjoyed especially, good photos are possible.
There is a small cafe inside the building, and souvenir shop.
There are gardens around the building with some statues etc, but nothing special at that time of year.

Let’s suppose you’ve walked up and down Brno’s commercial zones, squares, famous churches (x2), castle (x1)...
Dec 2018 • Solo
... and miscellaneous creepy underground exhibition halls.

Now here’s one that’s far from all these touristy cutie pies, way into West Brno requiring a bus ride.

1. The building guides you through the prehistory of mankind as well as the Homo genealogy. It gets pretty detailed at times. Imagine each Homo with its own cabinet. And with local maps showing original archaeological sites. But what about intercontinental travel? Homo erectus is one particularly good at this walking competition.

2. The classification of Homo floresiensis as a separate species is always controversial. I always like to see how museums present this part of the story among other intricate narrative complications.

3. You’ll also see tributes to Moravian archaeology and some of the human remains that were to be found locally.

4. The English audio guide follows a number sequence nowhere to be marked in the exhibition halls.

5. A temp exhibition runs in the basement. To get the English booklet, head to the ticketing office immediately (or a staffer would come to you by failing to disguise yourself from being apparently lost in words or wandering aimlessly).

Exploring the prehistory of the Earth and human predecessors
Jun 2018 • Friends
I am very proud of this museum that is really unique. The building that was enlarlaged and reconstructed in 2006 houses both permanent and temporary exhibitions. So this time we were lucky to enjoy the stories Welcome to Neanderthals and Fight of Ichtyosaurs. It was nice to meet the model of mamoth older than 100 years decorated as being in love. We believe it is true that history is a great teacher and paleonthology has many things to surprise us and say "wow".

disappointed
Jun 2017
it took a bit of effort to bus out to this place and most of it was disappointing. there was a gallery that talked about evolution and some generic displayed. a small area tucked in the corner dealt with local hominds. there is new exhibition on neanderthals focusing on local finds which is well worth seeing, but on the whole it was tired and some of the informational is out of date re findings. however the same team have done great work in a number of caves in the blansko district

Excellent displays

Museum is devoted to human evolution. It has some interesting life-size humans of various ages, and an excellent life-size mammoth and baby. Its worth about an hour visit. However, most signage is in Czech with some minimal English, so I did not get a lot of the displays.

Discoveries for all ages

Everybody admires the permanent exhibition, but this time lots of visitors were really sorry the temporary display devoted to the old civilisations in America could not last longer. This was definitely the most successful display so far. No wonder - you could become the man to discover the new continent or the mythic land of gold - the El Dorado. Both children and adults loved to be engaged in interactive activities.

Excellent museum - well worth a visit
Jul 2016 • Family
This is a museum devoted to human evolution. There is a permanent exhibition which makes up most of the museum, plus a display of art works depicting extinct animals plus a temporary exhibition - when we visited this was about the settlement of North and South America. There is an English audio guide and some signage in English. The permanent exhibition stretches over three floors. We recommend devoting most time to the first floor which covers evolution through to the australopithecines and second floor which covers the different species of homo. The third floor looks at different types of tools and cultural development which we found less interesting. Limited English spoken. There is a café which serves food as well as drink. The short menu - covering pizza and sausages - is not prominently displayed. Anthropos is outside the centre of Brno but is easy to get to, using a tram to Mendlovo Namesti then a trolley bus - you can plan your journey on-line.

the history of man...and one huge mammoth
May 2015 • Friends
The mammoth in the middle of the museum is the most astonishing thing and what you'll always remember about this place, and yet it has a lot else to offer about the history from what we know as the begining of mankind. The exhibits are very beautifully shown.
