This is a wonderful collection of instruments, many types of which I had never seen before. There are also listening posts, so you can hear what many of them sound like. Well worth the time spent there, whether a musician or not.

Although the museum interiors seem a little dark, the instrument collection is superb. Find a docent to assist with the earphones in each room...they don't all work well.

Me and my man, who's a musician, spent a few hours in this place admiring the beautiful instruments from all over the world. The craftmanship is amazing! I would recommend this place to everyone, you wouldn't want to miss these pieces of history and art!

We visited as part of a Business function that included dinner. It was a great end to a nice walking tour. They did a very good job catering a meal for over 100 people and the meal was very tasty. It was a nice business dinner venue.

The Tempory Exhibit is on the role Music and the arts plays in the rituals and mores of Death in a culture. It is not morbid, but a lesson in history and culture.

It is well promoted but I don't find it very interesting. I can't call it a waste of time, but there are much nicer places in Prague to visit.

It's a really interesting place if you're into classical music: there are lots of things to see like very old instruments, paintings and scores. ... But, there is no one who speaks English.

I played xylophone in the Christmas concert here. Acoustic is indeed made to be very impressive. We had additional performance of flutes, they where standing on the second floor, it sounded great. I play piano too.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
