Czech Museum of Music, Prague

4.5
#21 of 86 in Museums in Prague
Specialty Museum Museum
Explore the historical relationship between human beings and musical instruments at Czech Museum of Music. A 17th-century Baroque monastery is the beautiful setting for this museum. Inside, hear the original sounds made by less familiar instruments, such as sumptuous inlaid harpsichords or the 16th-century woodwinds. The museum houses about 700,000 items, including manuscripts, press documentation, and materials from the personal estates of two great Czech composers, Smetana and Dvořak. Examine variously shaped pianos, such as square or pyramid pianos, as well as the Empire-style giraffe or lyre pianos. Visit a more familiar slice of history by stopping to see a grand piano Mozart played in 1787. Make Czech Museum of Music a part of your Prague vacation plans using our Prague tourist route planner.

  • We visited the Museum having free with the prague card. Inside you will find a small exhibition at the upstairs and downstairs a collection of many tools of various types. Among them there is a piano played by Mozart during his stay in Prague. Staff (and it is hard to find in Prague). There is also the possibility of playing a piano that sits in the lobby

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
