Brno Czech Republic Museums
When it comes to sightseeing in Prague, the National Museum of the Czech Republic tops the list. It is the largest museum in the Czech Republic and has 16 buildings throughout the country.
Brno was founded in 2002 after the merger of the Natural History Museum in Prague and the Czech National Museum in Brno. The new site was opened in 2005 and has a collection of more than 100,000 objects from all over the country and the world.
It is considered one of the best museums in Prague and will probably be among the top five best museums in Brno.
The Technical Museum also has one of the oldest and most important buildings in Brno, the Old Town Hall, which has been completely restored and which can be seen from time to time on the streets of Brno. It had everything connected with public transport in Prague, from the train station to the railway station and everything in between.
When visiting Brno in the spring and summer months, you can see some of the historic trams passing through the city and ride one of them. The vintage trams are also part of the collection of this museum and are still used in the city today, but not as much as they were in the past.

The main building of the museum is located in the Kralovo Pole district of Brno and is accessible by public transport in the city. The museum was founded in 1961 in Bruno as part of the efforts to merge the two largest museums in the Czech Republic, the Archaeological Museum and the Aplies Biulding. It is located in a centrally located building. It was originally built for the construction of a new town hall for the Slovak Republic and was considerably expanded six years later. Today, the castle also houses several permanent exhibitions related to its history, as well as a museum with a collection of historical artifacts.
The museum's collection is housed in the Rajhrad Monastery, and the Ivancice Museum exhibitions are held in the Gallery of the Alfons Mucha Memorial in IvANCice. Finally, every two years the Moravian Gallery organises a series of exhibitions on the history and cultural heritage of Brno and its inhabitants.
This great event takes place once a year in June and participants have free admission to over 50 museums in Prague. The National Gallery has seven buildings from Prague to visit, as well as the Museum of the City of Brno and the Toy Museum. The town has a museum, the "Museum of the City of Breda" and a toy museum, located at the last five gates that allowed access to Brno in the Middle Ages, with a collection of more than 100,000 toys and other objects.
The West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen was founded in 1991 and is the largest museum institution in the Czech Republic. The museum has a collection of over 100,000 objects from all over the world, most of them assembled in a single building, with a special focus on the history of Czechoslovakia and its people. This museum is the only one in Europe dedicated exclusively to Roma and Gypsies and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Brno and one of the most important tourist attractions in Prague and Prague.
In 2009, the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic supported the construction of a new museum in Brno with a special focus on the history and culture of the Slup mill. The activities of the last years in connection with the repeated reconstruction of the mud mill were awarded the highest award for cultural heritage in Czechoslovakia for the first time. In fact, it is the largest complex, housing a collection of over 100,000 objects from around the world, but its most important facilities are not limited to them. As the city was at the forefront of the industrial revolution in Central Europe, Breda has a beautiful technology museum.
In 2017, more than 1.5 million euros were spent on the construction of the newly restored museum building, which together with the Rudolfinum exhibition building forms a cultural whole.
Of course, the Brno Philharmonic represents only a fraction of the classical music on offer in Brno. The best way to find out what is happening musically in Brno is to look at the list of concerts and concerts in the city, as well as the number of performances by local orchestras.
