Casements, castle & tower worth looking at. Some of the exhibitions are ok eg archeology & castle history but need 2 to 4 hrs to see them all.

Spilberk Castle was very interesting with a lot of local history. The castle had 3 level of displays from the 1200's to modern times. The lower level was the old prison from the Austrian times.

Medieval castle is well reconstructed and offers stunning views over Brno city. We have visited only courts, but there are interesting catacombs called "kazemats" to visit.

If you plan on going to the museum, don't expect too much out of it. It's a prison museum but since there is no guided tour [or at least I wasn't able to find one] the leaflet which you get on the entrance is obscure...More
