Antonín Dvořák Museum

Local name: Muzeum Antonína Dvořáka

The Antonín Dvořák Museum in Prague is dedicated to the Czech composer Antonín Dvořák. The museum contains many documents and monuments related to the artist, including: musical instruments, letters, period photographs, programs and posters. During the tour, you can hear fragments of the author's works. The museum is housed in a Baroque building.

The museum was founded in 1932. From the beginning, it was placed in a Baroque building designed by the architect Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer at the beginning of the 18th century. The building in which the museum is based has never been associated with the artist in any way. The edifice is known as Michna's Summer Palace or Villa America.

The Baroque edifice of the Antonín Dvořák Museum in Prague has had a number of other uses in its history. It housed a junior high school for girls, there was an institution that helped the poor, even a cattle drive took place in the garden. Eventually, the building was taken over by the National Museum, which organized an exhibition here dedicated to Antonín Dvořák.
