Moravia’s largest technical museum, located in NW Brno
The direct predecessor of the Technical Museum in Brno was Archiv pro dějiny průmyslu, obchodu a technické práce (the Archive for History of Industry, Commerce, and Technical Works), established in 1936.
Currently, the museum is an independent public-benefit corporation and is funded and managed directly by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
Among other things, its permanent exhibitions deal with the metallurgical industry, clockwork machines, cutlery, mechanical music, and large steamships and water machines. These permanent exhibitions are complemented by short-term ones as well.
Its Technical Playroom introduces various laws of physics and their technical applications in a fun way, to the enjoyment of visitors of all ages. The museum runs a craft-technical workshop which supports technical education of children through various activities and offers programs focusing on traditional craft techniques. The museum also organizes quite a number of events for both adults and children.
Besides its main building containing short-term and long-term exhibitions, in summer the museum opens six historical technical structures: a Baroque Blacksmithery in Těšany, a Watermill in Slup, a Windmill in Kuželov, an Old Ironworks near Adamov, the Šlakhamr in Hamry nad Sázavou, and an Infantry Block in Šatov.
