Brno Museum Night

Dear all! 
Did you know that May 18 is an international museum day celebrated worldwide? According to International Council of Museums "this day is an occasion to raise awareness on how important museums are in the development of society". For those of you who didn't manage to attend Brno Museum Night on Saturday (May 17), there is a short photo report. The photographs grasp the thrilling atmosphere quite well. Enjoy :) 

The visitors could choose from a wide variety of events for both, adults and children. These ranged from seeing Zetor tractors, listening to excerpts from compositions for the organ, to exploring post trains (and much more). We chose to visit Brno Philharmonic and Mendel Museum for you:

Well done Brno! Another great event...
