Prehistoric Venus and Comenius: The Moravian Museum in Brno
Do anthropology, archaeology, zoology, botany, numismatics, literature or music attract you? Then you will certainly embrace the wide range offered by the Moravian Museum in Brno, in which a respectable number of interesting items from the natural and social sciences are concentrated. The museum was created back in 1817 by means of an imperial decree by František I, and nowadays it contains over six million items. Take a closer look at prehistoric life in Pavilon Anthropos where you will see a life-size mammoth and all the things a prehistoric family had to face. Immerse yourself in the world of the musical composer Leoš Janáček in his preserved study. You will also learn more about the “Teacher of Nations” John Amos Comenius and about Mendel’s research legacy.
