The Remai won't be opening until the end of October. Most of the reviews here are for the Mendel Art Gallery, which has closed....only the conservatory remains open.

The Art Gallery is now closed. The Conservatory and Restaurant remain open. I still love the Conservatory and the fish pond, for a quick visit, especially mid-winter. The restaurant is better than adequate for a quick lunch and coffee. The architecture is very cool, 'Mid-Mod'...More
