Popularization Centre

Fort Science

Fort Science is a unique centre for popularization of science and research in Central Moravia. Interactive science museum has operated in a historical building of the former Crown Fortress complex since 2015. Permanent exhibitions, created in collaboration with the university staff, make visitors acquainted with the adventures of scientific disciplines and directions of research and studies at the UP Faculty of Science.

Visitors of the Fort Science will among other things find five unique exhibitions: Science in the Fort, dedicated to military fortress and life of soldiers in it, Water in the Landscape which introduces river flow from the spring to the estuary, and Common Sense, an exhibition which deals with basic principles of human knowledge. Visitors will be impressed by a six-meter wide dome of a digital planetarium, a part of Light and Darkness exhibition which makes visitors familiar with astronomical phenomena. All of the above-mentioned exhibits are complemented by scientific workshops.

The museum arose from an old four-storey artillery warehouse from the 19th century, which is a part of the Crown Fortress, a unique military area from the time of Maria Theresa.
