Permanent exhibitions

The tradition of having a museum in Blansko started in 1854 when Jindřich Wankel founded the first private museum here. Jindřich Wankel worked as a doctor for Salm's ironworks, but he was also a well-known figure of science and culture. He made many discoveries in the local unique karst area and is also known as the "father of Moravian archaeology".

Museum Blanenska currently offers 7 permanent exhibitions, in which visitors can discover some of Blansko's regional history. There is also an interactive space solely intended for children, called ‘The Space-time for playing with history’. Throughout the main route, there is an interactive complement to the main exhibitions to engage children.
