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.

  • After many years, I have visited this most famous of the Brno Museum about with his famous mammoth. I have to say that I was literally excited from exposures. The exhibits are thematically broken down, they are beautiful and young readers of Eduardo Štorcha, or other books about prehistoric times it's just a feast for the soul. Visually it is therefore OK. As well as a background in the form of a bistro and the dressing room I consider sufficient and pleasant, including the behavior of employees. So much for the for the positives. On the contrary, bothered me what it covered mainly information on exhibits. I found the descriptions of exhibits on display, in addition to the ground floor, I did not find any illustrative maps of findings/occurrences of animals, or information about the period to which the exhibit refers to. In the best case I read, that culture will find refers to, but I unfortunately couldn't join even with the most specific areas, or with the period. I think that in this area is, therefore, room for improvement. That's why I am giving it only four stars. Regarding the duration of the visit and for children it is sufficient 1-2 hours, for those who have individual exhibits will be viewed and read labels, it is possible to visit stretch and on all afternoon. In conclusion, I no longer traditional Brno issue parking. Between the Communist monument, zaniklým polorospadlou Stadium and the former? shooting gallery? is located between the parking lot and in the storage area. I also have not seen nor direction signs to this place. It looks as if the motorists were enemies of the city.

  • 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.
