The Löw-Beer Villa in Brno is the youngest branch of the Museum of the Brno Region. From 1913 to 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 Villa Tugendhat

The restored Löw-Beer Villa houses a permanent exhibition entitled The World of the Brno Bourgeoisie Around the Löw-Beers and Tugendhats. There is a public library. The exposition is complemented by temporary exhibitions at the Celnice Gallery (Customs House). Visitors can enjoy refreshments in the Celnice Café.

Dear visitors,

on Thursday 26th April 2018, the permanent exhibition will be open until 5pm.

Thank you for your understanding.
