The Brno Museum Night: free entry six to midnight and a lot to see

In Brno,Culture,Czech Tourism on May 13, 2009 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , ,

It is one of the coolest traditions cultural institutions in Brno have to offer. Every year in May, this year on May 16 (this Saturday) people can visit numerous places for free, and at night.

It is called the Brno Museum Night and it is held from six p.m. to midnight.

Galleries, museums, exhibition halls, churches… There is a HUGE exhibition devoted to Brno functionalism at the Spilberk Castle right here in Brno. Gotta see that.

The organizers promise a variety of accompanying events: seminars, painting workshops, night sky watching, fashion shows, vintage car show, sword fighting… or fireworks. And there will be some Roma fortune tellers as well.

Coming to Brno this weekend sounds like a brilliant idea.

Michal Kasparek of noticed the English version of the event website. Really helpful!

🙂 Is there any female expat out there who is not busy on Saturday evening and who would want to go? My e-mail is on the “About” page 🙂


Cows With Two Heads In Brno

In Brno,Nature,Travel on April 22, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: ,

If you are a fan of bizarre things, you should see what the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno has on display. Its Institute of Pathological Morphology has a small museum in which you can see stuffed cows with two heads or six legs. There are sheep with four normal legs and a fifth leg that is growing from the back straight up…

There are approximately two thousand exhibits…

I don’t think the institute organizes normal tours like a normal museum does, but if you are really interested and if you try some of these contacts, you might be lucky.
