Since its foundation in 1932, the Antonín Dvořák Museum has resided at 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 architect Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer. 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 Dvořák’s music autographs and correspondence, period photographs and other documentary materials.

The Journeys of Antonín Dvorák – Permanent exhibition
The permanent exhibition titled “The Journeys of Antonín Dvořák” documents the composer’s life and focuses on the journeys he made. In his time, Dvořák was one of the greatest Czech globetrotters. The museum’s visitors can accompany the famous artist on his journeys from his native Nelahozeves to Prague, throughout Europe, to America and back home to Bohemia. The experience is mediated by means of modern graphics and, primarily, authentic personal items, including Dvořák’s glasses, viola, piano, furniture from his study, the gown he wore hen receiving an honorary degree from Cambridge University, commemorative wreaths and other personal effects.
