The Antonin Dvorak Museum is part of the Czech Museum of Music which in turn is part of the complex of the National Museum. Built in the 18th century, this baroque building was designed by the famous architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer. Only a few minutes away from the city center, the museum has been housed in this building since 1932.
The museum displays photographs, newspaper cuttings, programmes and personal objects relating to the celebrated composer, including his musical instruments like viola and his piano. The building houses a unique collection of his manuscripts and correspondence, thus providing an important centre for research into Antonín Dvorak. Concerts are held there regularly, as well as seminars, lectures and exhibitions.

Small museum about the famous Czech composer... Exhibition is quite small but very nice... The building itself is well worth the visit on its own... A wee bit of the beaten track, it's a hidden treasure with a quiet garden at the back... Lovely facades to look at or sketch...
Charming, tiny villa, and entertaining and informative displays. Great artifacts, like his wallet, writing desk (astonishing to think of what masterpieces were finalized there), his quite rustic-looking viola, various pens, his sketch book from New York, a huge display of pipes, cigar paraphernalia, a deck of playing cards and even his set of bowling pins. You get to know Dvorak's life story and character, and as the written info is really vivid it never feels stuffy or academic. A must for any musician or music-lover!
Although it's quite small, the museum is great. It's intimate, fairly well kept and staffed by lovely people. One can easily spend an hour there, learning about the maestro's life and looking at some of his belongings. The ticket counter doubles as a gift shop, where one can find books, t-shirts, spectacle cases, etc. They accept debit cards, but only for the tickets - not for the souvenirs.
A bit out of the way in a run down area but well worth the effort. Beautiful house and very friendly staff. Very good value.
Location is unbeatable. English is informative (Czech info is far more). Fun interactive display of his most known pieces that you can "conduct" yourself. Good sense of his family.
