Designshop and Museum of Applied Arts is closed until November 2021 due to the reconstruction. 



At the Musem of Applied Arts we are currently preparing a new permanent exhibition, that we will be present to the public in November 2021.


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, and was considerably extended six years later. After WWII the building was adapted to plans by the leading functionalist architect Bohuslav Fuchs. The restoration project, designed by Ivan Koleček, Viktor Rudiš and Zdeňka Vydrová and completed in 2001, was received with great public acclaim.

The Museum of Applied Arts has a lecture room seating 70 people. The backup facilities for lecturing are provided by the Children's Studio.
