TypeTalks: Museum of Applied Arts
The monumental, quasi-historical building on the Brno ring road was purpose-built in 1882 to accommodate the oldest museum of applied arts in Bohemia and Moravia. The museum houses a permanent exhibition of applied arts from the Middle Ages to the present day, comprised of collections of glass, ceramics and porcelain, textiles, furniture and metalware. In addition to seeing the traditional displays visitors can take a virtual tour of the museum exhibits accessible through the Microgallery. The building also contains rooms for temporary exhibitions and The Camera, being the only exhibition facility dedicated exclusively to photography within the Czech art museums.
The Museum of Applied Arts has a lecture room seating 100 people and visitors can use the services of a museum shop and a café with Internet access.
