The first recorded mention of Tišnov (then using the name Tušnovice) is found in a charter of 1233 about the Cistercian convent Porta Coeli, which was founded three years earlier by Constance of Hungary. The founding of the monastery was also supported by her two sons, Moravian Margrave Přemysl and King Wenceslaus I. The property remained a monastery until its dissolution in 1782.
After being named as Tischnowitz or Tischnovitz, the town became known as Tišnov, and was included in Brno-area district in 1869. A railway line connecting Tišnov to Brno was constructed in 1885, and twenty years later the track was extended to Havlíčkův Brod, by which time Tišnov was its own municipality.
