Fort Science

Fort Science e is a one-of-a-kind centre for the popularisation of science and research in Central Moravia. At present, visitors can explore five unique expositions: Science in the Fort focusses on the military fortress itself and on how the soldiers used to live there. The Living Water exposition describes a water stream from its source all the way to the estuary. Logic in a Nutshell is an exposition dealing with the elementary principle of human knowledge. Visitors will be surely astonished by the six-metre copula of the digital planetarium in the exposition Light and Darkness, where astronomical phenomena are presented. All the expositions are complemented with Science Workshops.

The centre was created by the renovation of a large four-storey artillery storehouse from the middle of the nineteenth century and is located inside the Crown Fortress, a remarkable compound from the times of the Empress Maria Theresa.
