If you love music, put this museum on your list!

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.

I enjoyed walking through this old building. The architecture and layout was really interesting. I opened a door to go into the next room, and there was another door. As for the instruments, there were many varieties that I don't think are in use any longer.

Mixed feelings. Maybe musicians or music history lovers will love it more. Many instruments of all kinds and some old compositions are in exposition. The part related to "DEATH" was not too interesting to us. Will recommended it on a snow day or a rainy day if you already have visited the Technology museum, the museum of communism and the...

The museum is dedicated to the music, that's very important, because art is the path to enlightenment, to the development. It’s no use making a museum of weapons, because it would be just a collection from old to new, a small part of the aggressive history of the world and chaos. It seems to me that we should attach importance... More

This museum is not well publicized and despite being a music lover, I would not have known about this museum had I not seen an article (on my last day in Prague) about the recent discovery of a long-lost Mozart-Salieri cantata in the museum's library. I am so glad to have found it. The ground floor of this museum is... More

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.

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.
