The museum was originally chosen because we still had time left and what can go wrong with a nice museum? It was one of the better museum visits we had. Starting with a multimedia presentation, followed by a lot of touchable stuff. Nice questions regarding...More

Yes, the princess named Richenza was beautiful, but she did not live an easy life. She was born on the very first of September 1288 in Poland and she became the Czech queen in 1303 as she was fifteen. Only two years after the royal...More

You can reach it easily from the centrum, it's a good program if you like biology. Does not takes too much time, 1 hour is enough. It's only for 40 kc.

We were here in group of geneticists and were really satisfied with the content. Nice explanation of Mendel studies and principle of genetics. I think it's interesting even for non-genetics/non-biology orientated people.

It's a quite small museum, but it was really good at explaining Mendel's theories in a very nice way that's easy to understand with games and other interactive ways.

OK, Upfront admission that I'm a biologist, but I think everyone would learn something and appreciate the innovative, amazing thinking that Mendel performed at the Abbey. He didn't only work on genetics, but was the first to report scientifically about a tornado. He wrote more...More

The museum is tiny and so not worthy of Mendel. You can see the whole thing in 15 minutes. They really should do a lot more. And don't go there expecting to see the Abbey where he was the abbot. It is not open to...More
