The Moravia Museum, originally called the Museum Francisceum Brunae, was founded in Brno, Czech Republic, in 1818. At that time Brno was the capitol of the country of Moravia. The mineral collection was based on the donation of the collections of four Moravian noblemen: Count Johann Nepomuk Mitrovský (1757-1799), Count Serénye, Count Salm and Prince Lichtenstein. In the 20th century the collections of F. Kretschmer and Dr. J. Bake, E. Burkart, B. Kučera, Gusaf vancara and Tomas Kruťa were added. The museum today houses over 145,000 mineral specimens.
