  • One of the best museums I've seen in the Czech republic, but, yes, it's in an area that is "not that nice" in the sense that it's poor and populated by a lot of gipsies. My Airbnb was very close by and in my week in Brno it did feel at times a bit too roudy. The reason the museum is in this area is to raise awareness and some of the proceeds go to children of the area. The dudes who showed me around were Rromani as well and, of course, they were the nicest guys, even if, the guy selling the tickets looked like a Bulibasha :)) No, seriously, the guys were great and the curation of the museum is EXCEPTIONAL! They have an audio guide basically telling the story, it is surprisingly unbiased and sticks very closely to facts. I used my own knowledge as Romanian to gauge any bias and, I will admit, there is zero when it comes to portraying the gipsies in the Danubian Principalities and Transylvania so I'm pretty sure the rest of the narrative is correct, I personally felt enriched by the info In terms of exhibits, don't expect much, it's one of those modern museums that relies more on story telling and providing an experience than showing you lifeless objects. Nonetheless, there are some cool examples of Rromani art I ended up staying close to two hours here and I must say it blew my mind. Hard to say I learned anything new since I already knew most of it, but to see such a place depicting the story of these people with such grace was an inspiration. I only wish Romania, who was an active part in the Holocaust, would allow something similar 10/10 recommended, if in Brno as a tourist be sure to visit. Sadly when I was there, I was alone for close to two hours, this needs to be more popular
  • Excellent museum about Roma culture and history. Lots of objects and stories which will lead you as a visitor to a history of culture, persecution, and resilience of an often misunderstood community. Very interesting to read about linguistic similarities with Hindu/Bengali and the origins of Roma being referred to as Egyptians or Gypsy's. Museum is also based in a neighborhood near the community. Apparently the neighborhood has a bit of a reputation but I felt very safe and welcome. More information could be provided in English, since without th booklet I received it would have been difficult to read much since almost all the signs are in Czech.
