We visited the gallery and it was wonderfull. You can look at the exposition for free and if you want you can check the exihibition of the gallery for a good price. The paintings were also very interesting - with all kind of type for example - nature, people, religion.

Be sure you will find beauty in every building that belongs to the Moravian Gallery. There are three palaces in the very centre of the city including Museum of Applied Arts, the Prazak Palace and the Governor Palace. This time I would love to attract your attention to the exhibition named “Aristocracy of Taste”. I was lucky enough to participate... More

This museum is not about the history of Moravia and the culture in the area. It really is a collection of fossils and archaeological finds from the region. If you are interested in this sort of thing, it is worth a visit but there are limited English translations which makes it hard to understand things. There are no English guides... More

Didn't quite know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. You need to get a ticket but it's free. The art is in chronological order from 14th century till 19th century, mostly from the region, though some Flemish, Dutch and Italian artists also contribute. It starts out with a lot of religious works and then changes to landscapes and such.... More

If you visit the website of this institution you will see that the collection is distributed in different venues. I visit the two of them that are very close to each other: Prazak Palace (Modern and Contemporary Art) and the Museum of Applied Arts. There is another major venue with Art until the XIX century that I did not visit.... More

Tells the story of the history of the area including the liberation of Moravia in 1945. Exhibits include the end of the Reign of the Swastika and war testimonies. We were fortunate to see an exhibition of Asian Puppets which were being shown here which lightened the mood. Very interesting and informative display.

It is a good place especially in a rainy day to go. You can see all the show. Entry fee is acceptable.

Interesting but a bit inaccessible if you can't read Czech. They had an English language brochure but it was minimal. If you really want to understand the exhibits, it would be worth hiring a guide. The 1945 exhibit was understandable if you know your history even without Czech. The rocks and minerals and chemical elements was beyond me. But I... More
