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 very well done and everything is labeled and explained in English too! There are listening stations that her interactive with the written message. Upstairs is... More

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.

Stunning central European collection of everything from Early Baroque instruments to Tesla Synths. Variations on things you may have already seen, but mutated. Actual instruments played by Haydn... Great way to spend an hour near the incline in Prague.

Stumbled across this museum while walking in Prague. So glad we found it! The ground floor has rotating exhibitions on music, The second and third floors have interesting exhibitions showing the evolution of many different musical instruments as well as headphones that allow the visitor to listen to how different musical instruments sound. Fascinating to see, for example, how very... More

We visited here after reading the reviews and learning how close it was to the other sights in Mala Strana - just a short walk down Karmelitska. The exhibits were very interesting, and the sheer number of different instruments and their craftsmanship was amazing. We loved listening to the different pieces of music. I think it would have been even... More

It was raining on our final day in Prague, and as my partner and I are both music lovers we decided to spend some time at the Czech Museum of Music. Getting there was easy - the 22 tram stops just down the road. The museum is housed in a beautiful old converted baroque church, and there is a large... More

Because my friends and I both love music and know how to play some instruments, we decided to include this museum in our Prague trip. The museum has many exhibitions on both floors. The first floor usually only for special exhibition and the 2nd floor is for the permanent one. You can see lots of old and new instruments belong... More

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.
