Mendelovo Museum

Local name: Mendelovo muzeum

The Mendel Museum is located in the former Augustinian monastery, of which Mendel was the abbot. It commemorates the research of this religious and scientist who discovered the law of inheritance. In five rooms there are souvenirs of the scholar. Ego experiments and works are also shown here.

Georg Mendel, who lived in the 19th century, is considered the father of genetics. In 2007, in the former Augustinian Abbey, where he spent a large part of his life, his museum was opened. In five rooms, the five most important topics were shown, around which his life and work were focused. The next rooms show Mendel as a religious, scientist, man of many interests, genetics and beekeeper. Since 2016, the museum has been operating an interactive exhibition that allows you to participate in lectures and classes conducted by geneticists, philosophers and biologists based on the work of Mendel and his discoveries.
