Mendel Museum - Review
Mendel, if you didn’t know, is widely regarded as the father of genetics – he demonstrated what have become famously known as Mendel’s Laws of Inheritance. He used to work here and so the museum aims to promote his legacy and make his science and the methods of his science accessible to the public; these include his work on bees and meteorology. In the gardens here, you’ll be able to see the foundations of what was once Mendel’s original greenhouse. The museum also facilitates art and frequently hosts short term at exhibitions. At the same complex you can see his apiary, the Augustinian abbey and the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady.

Mendel Museum, Brno Reviews
As a biologist, is a privilege to be where Gregor Mendel developed all his studies in genetics. The place itself isn't any amazing, just an abbey, but the history behind it is too much. The Mendel museum is very didactic for people out of the field
A must visit if you care about scientific history! The exhibit itself is rather small but it has some very neat pieces from Gregor Mendel. This place is perfect to teaching kids about genetics. For me the attraction was walking the same garden and hallways that Mendel did.
Cool, many of the original buildings gone. Cool that you can get seeds from the descendants though.
A fine place to come if you have time to spare in Brno. Highly recommend to come with friends and take the opportunity to mock them if they are lack of knowledges of genetics 😎. Quite a space that the exhibition can improve, some contents such as the welcome video in the first chamber are just unprovoked.
Loved learning more about Mendel and seeing in person some of his artifacts. But, most of all, I enjoyed talking a walk in the gardens he used to walk in! Especially for those who love or appreciate Genetics, or science all, this is the place to go. It is also very kid friendly and educational.
