It is impossible to ignore the beauty of the musical instruments preserved in this museum: carved and gilded wood; marvellous figures guarding the sounds of now silent music. It is great to have audio devices to listen to the instruments in the cases, violins, pianos, trumpets, organs, etc. Although it could be a bit more interactive, it is a great... More

Here you can see original old instruments starting from 16th century. Very emotional to see Mozart's forte piano. Instruments are shown by categories (string, wind, etc). In each room, you can listen to the real sound of several instruments. We can realize that Mozart didn't hear his music with the same sounds as the one we have today. Very warm... More

I saw the reviews on the website and thought it will be interesting and interactive. You just walk and see old pianos and stuff like that nothing interactive. Won't recommend unless you are really into historical musical instruments.

Its become a bit of a thing for my fiancee and I to visit music museums in the different cities we visit across Europe and this museum certainly didnt disappoint. While not massive it is a nice size with some great exhibitions inclusing the Mozart Piano. Was a great way to round off our afternoon on that side of the... More

Thanks to other Trip Advisor reviewers, this was put on our list of things to do. The reviews are not exaggerating. It really is that good! The entrance is on the left side (facing the building) off a small garden / courtyard / parking space. There's a free cloakroom service where you can leave coats and bags. The building is... More

Popped in here for what we thought was a half hour visit before lunch. Over 2 hours later we left after an amazing (and unexpected) time where we wondered round an amazing collection of musical instruments. I am not a musical person but I took some photographs and showed them to a friend who plays in a medieval orchestra and... More

Great exhibition on Joseph Suk. The rest of the museum was fascinating as well. So many old musical instruments on display. Not crowded at all.

I recommend this museum. On the one hand there are some stunning exhibits of musical instruments, and on the other there are some great interactive parts- you can listen to music, and play some of the instruments! All in a beautiful building and a modest entrance fee.

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.
