Anthropos is a museum located in the city of Brno, South Moravia, Czech Republic. The museum is a part of the Moravské zemské muzeum . It focuses on exhibitions presenting the oldest history of Europe and mankind. In a 2009 exhibition, the museum presented the most important art works of the Paleolithic era, such as Venus of Willendorf and Venus of Dolní Věstonice.Basic characteristicsThe museum is situated on the right bank of the river Svratka, in the cadastral municipality of Pisárky in the western part of Brno. It consists of a permanent, three-part exhibition presenting the oldest history of human settlement in Moravia and Europe and of temporary exhibitions. The permanent exhibition includes a life-size model of mammoth.HistoryIn 1928, during an exhibition of the contemporary culture held at the Brno Exhibition Centre, the archaeologist Karel Absolon presented the findings of the oldest history of human settlements in a solo exhibition called Člověk a jeho rod (Man and his Ancestry). The exhibition was supported by the first Czechoslovak president Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and by the entrepreneur Tomáš Baťa, however, the creation of an independent institute was thwarted by the financial crisis and later by the World War II. It was not until the 1950s when Absolon's successor, archaeologist and then Director of the Moravian Museum Jan Jelínek enforced building of an independent pavilion in Brno-Pisárky. The museum was opened in 1961.

  • Antropos will lead you to the Pavilion a statue of deer hunts primitive man. Inside are beautiful paintings of master Burian and in addition, everything about the evolution of ancestral humans. And a stuffed mammoth (a bit oversized, but the coat is right) with mamuťátkem.

  • I took the little nephew to poodíval on mammoth-it was an experience, the baby was hillarious and I guess it was enough. To the rest of the exposure we are only consulted but does not have it, the nephew's idea was unenthusiastic and too me not. However, the mammoth worth anyway.

  • Největší tahák je velký mamut. Ostatní spíše pro starší děti popř. příležitost pro rodiče doprovodit ostatní exponáty, co nejzajímavějším komentářem.
  • Mamuta musí vidět každej :)
  • Super
  • Beware of the mammoth

  • The Museum is not too interesting, but there's a downstairs snack, which is located on the Favorites, especially for cyclists and pedestrians.
