A new exhibition in the Celnice Gallery is now openned – The Transformation of Brno or 13 Views Through the Lens of Time. The exhibition focuses on the city of Brno, its past and present, and shows transformation of some of its strees, squares and corners during the past one hundred twenty to one hundred fifty years.
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 Vila Tugendhat.
The restored Löw-Beer Villa houses a permanent exhibition entitled The World of the Brno Bourgeoisie Around the Löw-Beers and Tugendhat. 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.
