The entrance fee is ridiculous, the museum is a joke - that is, unless you are interested in the fibulae, pots, pans, and ironwork objects of Greater Moravia. The medieval section is especially disappointing - some of the objects are bad plaster casts, all the manuscripts are facsimiles. The adjacent Mendelarium is essentially an exhibition of wall texts that you read whilst ascending flights of stairs, there is one room with a puppet of Mendel that tries to convey a sense of Mendel's scientific world, but if you want to learn anything about Mendel himself, and about the significance of his discoveries during his own time, this museum fails on all fronts. The entrance fees are on par with some of the major art and cultural museums in Europe and the U.S. We stayed for an hour in total, trying to find something truly interesting and unique to see, and guess what, we were the only visitors.

This museum has potential and some really valuable pieces, but it is in dire need of reconstruction: the permanent exhibition is old and tired, clearly designed eons ago. For instance, there are clearly some very valuable and interesting pieces in the archeological section, but the exhibition as a whole feels like it wasn't redesigned since the nineteen-seventies. I really hope the government pours some funds into this place soon.

Are you interested in history of the Czech Republic, mainly in history of the Moravian region? - If your answer is yes, then hurry up to the main building of the Moravian museum,i.e. the Dietrichstein Palace, and enjoy the exposition celebrating the century of the Czech Republic. If you are a fan of mineralogy and geology, then go to the exposition focusing on the stones and rocks including precious stones and meteorites too. If you prefer to listen to the stories of great man, then go and be inspired exploring the cabinet of Karel Absolon, the grandson of Jindrich Wankel, the father of Moravian archeology. Another great story to be listened inside the Mendelianum - part of the Bishop´s courtyard - next to the main building of the museum. Music of Leos Janacek to be celebrated inside the Janacek Memorial - one of my favourite places where to go during the Museum night in Brno. Of course do not miss the Anthropos - the unique exhibition allowing you to study the oldest history of "Moravian Hunters and Gatherers". Have a good time exploring the second largest and second oldest museum of the Czech Republic. During the official state days (bank holidays) in the Czech Republic the admission is free of charge. Do not miss the Museum night in May, there is only a symbolic fee to enter, have fun!

It is a nice museum but unfortunately exhibitions have no English explanation at all. In such a tourist attraction English language is a necessity as it is the international language for most foreign tourists. Unfortunately we suffered understanding about the story and history behind the exhibitions.

The exhibition was well laid out and contained different exhibits of pre history and Roman times. All the exhibits has only Czech language details, as I was with a Czech speaker who could tell me about the exhibits is was fine, Had I been alone or without a Czech speaker it would be less enjoyable and informative.

This museum concentrates on the pre-history and geology of the Czech Republic, especially Moravia.Take a Czech speaker with you, all the exhibits are in Czech! The exhibits are excellently done, with a good depth of explanation

It may not be flash and modern, but this place is LOADED, from vast amounts of excavation finds, walls and walls of rocks and minerals to sliced polished meteorites.

Fossils and STUFF lots of STUFF.

And a very, very nice selection in the blink and you miss it shop.

Was present for the scientific opening of the Mendelianum in Brno. This is the new major section of the Moravian Museum. It interprets the work of Gregor Mendel with regard to the culture and political milieu of Brno/central Moravia. It includes excellent hands-on activities for school children and rare artifacts for scholars. It is well worth a stop for Brno visitors, with easy access from the train station and central town.
