Czech Museum of Music, Prague

(190+ reviews on the web)
Specialty 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.
