Although in central Prague, this museum was almost completely deserted by tourists when I visited. It is in a beautiful old building and houses a fine collection of musical instruments from the16th century to the modern day. These are very well displayed and there are...More

I should qualify that! The small exhibit of Dvorak's "Rusalka" was splendid, but it will only be there to the end of April. The rind of the first floor, however, if filled with instruments. If you've never met a museum of instruments you didn't like,...More

Wonderful interior! They often organize concerts but the acoustics is very tricky here. For all music, culture and architecture lovers, it's a must visit. A jewel of Mala strana.

I only recommend this attraction to someone who likes music specially piano. A great part of the visit includes many pianos and one supposedly from Mozart. It also has wind instruments but the core are the pianos.

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,...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.

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods 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
