The exposition of the Lednice-Valtice premises shall guide children and adults through the local fauna and flora; after a tour of the aquarium with live fish you can listen to the sounds of birds or climb into a hide. The exposition of Historical Viticulture Presses and Tools offers unique exhibits, e.g. a wine press from 1719. In the exposition of the Historical Development of Fruit Growing, Market Gardening and Viticulture, you will find not only old garden tools, but also paraffin models of fruit and vegetables that also introduce varieties, which you will no longer find in the stores and orchards.
Every season, the Museum of Viticulture, Horticulture and Landscaping prepares a few exhibitions and events. The popular events are, for instance, the exhibition of annuals or the autumn Grape Harvest and Pumpkin Harvest. We also recommend a visit to the museum to families with small children and school groups for which tutoring programmes have been prepared.
