Overview

A lesson on the history of minting is presented in a cellar. The area under Dominikánské náměstí (Dominican Square) is now the home of an exhibition of the Mint Master’s Cellar and the reconstructed cellars of Nová radnice (the New Town Hall). The exhibition shows the nearly forgotten craft of mintage in Brno and Moravia, and it illustrates how the square above, once Rybný trh (the Fish Market), also called Forum Piscium, has developed over the centuries since the Middle Ages. It also shows the history of the Gothic Královská kaple (Royal Chapel) that was located in the lower part of the square until the beginning of the 20th century. The cellars are located under the New Town Hall, a current seat of the municipal government, and the exhibition features an audiovisual presentation of the history and presence of the statutory city of Brno. And from time to time, experienced mint masters have been known to show off their artistic skills here.

We went to ossuary one before this, however ossuary one is not impressive as staff is just sitting there and not telling more about the place. But here, the staff is really excellent, he explained everything in details and in an interesting way. Lots of...More

I loved history of the coins and the now demolished King's Chapel, and the people historically related. The Mint-master demonstrated the final minting of a coin, which I happily bought, what a great souvenir! What made this visit exceptional was Mark, our guide. He was...More

You begin with a 15min video about a few attractions and some history on the local mint. You can then wander (not very long) or a guide will come with you (I wish I had said yes)

Managed to find it after being taken there by a local as not signposted and difficult to find. Once inside plenty to read, films to watch in English and a person on the front desk who explained a lot of what to see
