Great and modern museum, with all sorts of religious arts (paintings, statues, silverware), presented in an excellent way. The old buildings have been restored beautifuly. This museum deserves more attention.

If you are in Olomouc go there it's nice but also small time needed. It took us about half an hour there.

The collection is, of course, very heavy on religious art, but there are many other items of interest. The layout and design of the archaeological exhibits is particularly well done (and stroller/ wheel chair friendly). The works by Dürer are particularly noteworthy.

The Archdiocesan Museum is housed in the renovated buildings. The tour includes the Romanesque Bishop's Palace and the Chapel of St. Barbara. The architecture is beautiful. The museum sits on the wall of the city and has a nice garden behind.

A thousand years of spiritual culture in Moravia. Check their website. It's a Museum of religious artefacts over 3 floors. From an excavated crypt (bit like a bunker entrance) to first floor. Statutes, paintings, silks and the treasure room of gold chalices and monstrances. A...More

It's a bit of a quirky visit as you are being directed where to go by the volunteers. The small circular chapel is stunning and quite unexpected. Many beautiful paintings and statues. The carriage and armoury housing the gold items are worthy of particular mention.
