Diocesan museumMuseum building

Diocesan Museum was founded on June 1, 1993 as the first of its kind in the Czech Republic. Until 1999, the museum was housed in the premises of the Augustinian monastery in Old Brno. After that their activity has discontinued until 2006, when gained newly renovated rooms in the house at Petrov 1. In 2007, there was then also opened a permanent exhibition Vita Christi - Life of Christ, designed by former museum director dr. Karel Rechlík.



Permanent exposition Life of Christ

This exhibition is dedicated to the life of Jesus Christ. It is a collection of works of art which show the fundamental events of His life. These works are largely Gothic and Baroque sculptures and paintings. The most precious object of this exhibition is the painting of Madona from the middle of the 14th century. The painting is on the wooden board with gold-plated background. It originates from the Prague milieu of the court and it is a significant example of the supreme medieval art.

Temporary exhibitions

Since the reopening of the museum after 2006 were already several large exhibitions, which have been installed in the attractive surroundings of the crypt of St. Peter and Paul in Brno.
