As of today (May 24, 2015) Bertramka is closed, despite the sign on the gate stating it's open each day from 10 am to 4 pm. A look through the gate confirms that it's in a state of neglect. What a pity to this Mozart's fan!

Getting to Bertramka was fun - taking the subway and a bus. But once arriving at the Mozart Museum, there was nothing of value. All of the exhibits have been removed due to an international dispute between competing Mozart Museums in Austria and Czech Republic. Literally, there was nothing devoted to Mozart in the museum.

As a Mozart fanatic, I visited Bertramka 16 years ago and loved it. I took my partner this year, having raved about it and was SO disappointed. After changes in ownership, I gather the Czech Museum of Music has plundered all the artifacts, manuscripts, instruments and paintings. There is nothing there apart from a modern harpsichord, a half-hearted exhibtion about an early Mozart opera and several empty display cases pushed to the back of the room with labels showing what treasures they contained in the past. That's it! I am amazed that they have the gall to call it a museum and certainly not to charge 50 Crowns entrance fee. Save your energy and the walk from the tram. It isn't worth it! And as for what has happened to the contents? Well we went round the Czech Museum of Music last year and there was no sign of any of them on display. Strange!

Dears I visited the Villa this summer and it is in rapid decline due to lack of maintenance. Plaster coming of the facade, water infiltration damage on the ceiling that is clearly not adressed to, etc. I was so excited to visit it and left with tears not of joy but sadness in my eyes. Just a couple of more years like this and damage to the original features will be beyond repair. Someone save it, and if the owners can't do it, let them sell it to someone who can. Hearbreaking.

We visited Bertramka a few years ago. A beautiful place and a beautiful house. The ghost of Mozart was still wondering around. Just beautiful. How we were disappointed this year.
Tears were coming in my eyes, terrible, terrible,
nothing of the former beauty was left ..... All the beautiful things were taken out and the building is shabby and not kept. The paint is coming off etc.. It is sad what can happen when they plunder things and do not take care of valuable things. It's a shame !!!!! What can we do to
restore the building and its environment...I wish I could buy it !

In August 2013 my wife and I visited this house. To think that Mozart walked around this place evokes incredible emotions. Most of important things were removed from here in the past but, the house and presence of Mozart is strongly felt here; it brought tears to my eyes to walk the stairs, enter the house and see the windows, the rooms, the patios. All things considered it is a very beautiful,peaceful and inspiring House. To plan a special trip and spend a lot of effort and money to visit this house maybe is not a good idea, but if you have chance go trough those doors and hear the Opera !

This was the house of Mozart. As we walked in, we thought we were trespassing. There was an old lady on the grounds and for a moment we thought we just broke into her house. The place is so badly kept that it looks abandoned. It really saddened me. It is a place you will visit anyways if you are a fan. But have in mind, what you see, will probably disappoint you.

I have to agree with other reviews that I read about this museum, but we were determined to see it. The attendant told us that many items (not available) due to some Court Cases suing for possession but her English was limited, so not sure we actually understood. Even with what they did have though, I think a little Mozart music could have improved our experience there. Not as much English translation as I would have liked either. I could certainly visualize Mozart there visiting the Dusek family in very peaceful surroundings and doing his work. It is tricky to find though, but for us that made it even more memorable. We were warned not to go up the steep path through the woods, but as we insisted we could manage, the lady told us to watch for the 5 steps on the right which would then lead us through athletic (soccer) fields, to a long, winding path down through the woods. Lucky for us a very, very nice woman walking her dog, walked us all the way down to the entrance. We enjoyed our lunch (which we brought with us) sitting, listening to the birds, and being thankful for Mozart. We were the only ones there! Seems to have such potential!

Bertramka museum, originally a (private) house that Mozart had stayed when he was visiting Prague (late 18th Century). From our Diplomat Hotel, we took a taxi back and forth to see it, at the suggestion of our tour operator (in the itinerary). Mozart? A big name, must see? When we got there, the entrance area looked simple. The immediate area was not impressive. OK, Admission was about $2, no problem. But, once inside, we found that the exhibit/museum area is but 3 rooms, not very large rooms. 1 was actually closed. A few framed items on the walls, and a harpsichord. Simple harpsichord, not an ornate one either. We thought it was not one from his time anyway. What a disappointment. Taxi fare alone cost us 900 crowns, which was at least U.S. $40. Not worth it after all. Only bragging we could do is just "We was there!" A disappointment we thought. Not enthusiastically recommended.

When we visit this museum it was closed but on the wall there was a sign with opening hours as usual, but we looked inside through the gate and it was dead inside......so that was sad, Tripadvisor need to take this away as it seem to be permanent.
