Antonin Dvorak was the most famous of all Czech composers, and the Dvorak Museum has been setup to celebrate his life and works.
The building that is today used to house the museum is called "Villa Amerika", and was where Dvorak lived during the last 24 years of his life.
It was designed by the famous Czech architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, who is responsible for much of the architecture in Prague including the Church of St. Nicholas in the Old Town, and the St. Nicholas Cathedral in the Lesser Town. Originally, it was meant to be a country palace, because in the early 18th century, this area was not yet consumed by the growing city.
Inside you can find many items relating to the life of Dvorak, including some of his personal effects, hand written manuscripts and music, his piano and many photographs. In addition, a number of the rooms in the museum have been restored to exactly how they were during the time of Dvorak.
During the summer, musical performances are held here on the upper floors, usually starting in the evening at around 8pm.
