Thank you for your understanding.

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. The technical facilities guided tours take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Exhibition shows the famous textile history of Brno

Monday, 15 April 2019

From 12 April to 28 July 2019, the Celnice Gallery hosts the exhibition Brno's textile heritage, which maps textile factory sites in the South Moravian metropolis from the perspective of contemporary heritage conservation. The exhibition was prepared by the Methodical Center of Industrial Heritage in Ostrava, which belongs to the National Heritage Institute.

In the 19th century, Brno developed into the most important wave center of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and the traces of this famous industrial past of the so-called Moravian Manchester are still visible. Many areas have been urbanized by the development of textile production, and today the question is how to deal with this heritage.
