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.

    The permanent exhibition is a certainty of quality, but also the great woolly mammoth with one day-bye. However, the who still haven't seen the mammoth, let come to enjoy.

    After many years we went on a tour to the famous Museum in Brno-Anthropos! We were pleasantly surprised by how much work has been done here and what are the new and interesting things. A lot of news. Who likes this period-I highly recommend it! Mammoth is a domain! Zuzka

    This place is a pit stop for me when I am riding my bicycle. A good place to relax and refresh yourself before you continue further.

    Museum known since its beginning even before the reconstruction of the school "trips" on primary and secondary school. I have to say that I managed to create a pleasant place with a quiet garden in the Park and at the same time the inner space of the museum itself is new, clean and Nice. Offer food and drink is proportional to the size of the garden prices are also acceptable. In addition to the classic menu, beer, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and finger food such as hot dogs, pizza, panini, sausage and similar seasonings. As regards the exposure so I do not know of any similar location where you have found so much information about prehistoric times together in one place.
