Map of Czech Museum of Music in Prague
The Czech Museum of Music is located in the former Baroque church of St. Mary Magdalene, built in the 17th Century, in the Lesser Town area of Prague.

The building underwent major reconstruction some years ago, and now blends early Baroque church architecture with comptemporary design.

The grandiose assembly hall has been revitalised. Its stonework gleams once more, and lighting, both natural and from spotlights, shows off the true height and intricate aspects of the building.

The driving force behind the renovation works was the need to provide a better space for museum exhibits. This has been achieved, the Czech Museum of Music now has a collection of around 700,000 items, documenting the history of music in the city and the wider world.

Most extensive are the Music Notation Archive and the Recordings Library. But there are also collections of manuscripts, iconography, and press documentation, as well as materials from personal estates, libraries, the Musical Instruments Collection, and items from the two great Czech composers, Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák.

The Czech Museum of Music also hosts a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions. To see what is currently on display, see our Prague events calendar.
