There is an exhibition of molluscs of Vysočina Region in Jihlava. The exhibition is held in Museum of Highlands (Muzeum Vysočiny Jihlava) in Jihlava from April 27 to June 10.

The exhibition is quite unique, because it focus on local malacofauna of the Vysočina region. No other exhibition about non-marine molluscs of the Czech Republic or of its part was held yet.
