Established in 1904, the Museum cares for the cultural heritage of the city. Its rapid development would occur after 1960 when the institution moved into Špilberk Castle, the landmark notorious as “the dungeon of nations”, where, e.g., Italian poet, Silvio Pellico, had been imprisoned. In addition to history the museum expositions cover artistic and urban development, especially the unique era between the world wars, when Brno occupied a dominant position in the development of modern architecture. What serves as an excellent illustration is the Tugendhat Villa designed by an architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built between 1929 and 1930. It has been on the List of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2007.
