Antonín Dvořák Museum

About

Since its foundation in 1932, the Antonín Dvořák Museum has resided in the Baroque villa “America” in Prague’s New Town. The house, surrounded by a beautiful garden featuring statues from the workshop of Matyáš Bernard Braun, was built at the beginning of the 18th century by Count Jan Václav Michna of Vacínov according to the design of the distinguished Czech architect Kilián Ignác Diezenhofer. The ground floor is furnished with historical wooden showcases dating back to the time of the museum’s establishment. The ceiling of the first floor is adorned with Johann Ferdinand Schor’s wonderful frescos depicting classical mythology themes. The museum’s mission is to gather, look after and make accessible documents pertaining to the Maestro’s life and work. Above all, it possesses a unique collection of Dvorák’s music autographs and correspondence, period photographs and other documentary materials.
