The Löw-Beer Villa in Brno is the youngest branch of the Museum of the Brno Region. From 1913-1939 it was owned by Alfred Löw-Beer, Jewish industrialist and trader in textiles, who gave his daughter Greta part of the plot of land at the end of the 1920s, where she and her husband Fritz Tugendhat had a house built between 1929 and 1930 – today the world-famous Vila Tugendhat

The restored Löw-Beer Villa will house an exhibition entitled The World of the Brno Bourgeoisie around the Löw-Beers and Tugendhat. The library will be publicly accessible. The exhibition will be complemented by temporary expositions at the Celnice Gallery (Customs House). Visitors can also enjoy refreshments in the Celnice Café.

The First Exhibition at the Celnice Gallery (former Customs House)

Friday, 12 June 2015

The first exhibition staged in the renovated building of Celnice was opened on 27 May and invites visitors to explore “The Löw-Beers' Heritage in Brno“. The exhibition remembers the family of important industrialists engaged in the wool trade and the sugar industry, which earned its place in the history of the City of Brno and southern Moravia. The heritage of three generations of the family is scattered across the town: residential, industrial and other buildings which, however, the people of Brno mostly tend to pass by without paying special attention.
