About
The new seat of the Czech Museum of Music is located in the former Baroque church of St. Mary Magdalene at Lesser Side, built in the 17th Century according to the proposal of Francesco Caratti. The church was gradually rebuilt after the dissolution of the Dominican Monastery in 1783. Among other things, it served as a Police barracks and archive. The unusual symbiosis of the early Baroque church architecture with the classicist adjustment of usage and newly finished reconstruction of the Museum offers visitors a detail of an impressive combination of monumentality.

The area
Neighbourhood: Malá 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 shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

Ceske Muzeum Hudby is a great looking museum dedicated to music,its a great looking building, when we passed here at night it looked amazing, it's such a photogenic building that's well worth a few minutes of your time if you're walking down Karmelitska.

There are lots of tourist websites, blogs and posts on social media stating this museum is free on the first Thursday of each month. It isn’t. When you go to the ticket office and ask, the person behind the desk simply points to a sign stating that it isn’t free on the first Thursday of the month. When I walked in, so many staff around but not one visitor in site. Enough said .

Home to the Czech Museum Of Music ( České Muzeum Hudby ) is a great looking museum building ,it's a building that is architecturally inspired and influenced by the once mighty Austro - Hungarian Empire ,such a photogenic building and it's a building that adds to the joy of walking around the Lesser Town ( Mala Strana ) and easy to locate along Karmelska .

It is interesting to see all the various instruments but we were a bit disappointed as we thought from the way it was described that there would be a lot more ways to interactive with the instruments. However, you can only try a few. They have made an effort with the tvs where you can listen to a few of the displayed instruments but it seemed a bit random how they were selected.
We loved the piano stairs though and it would be great to see a lot more like this. Ie why not have a little recording room where you can record yourself while playing something.

The permanent museum had a few very interesting exhibits (like a grand piano with 3 keyboards) and some very inspiring hands-on experiences. Especially the theremin was excellent! Some screens unfortunately didn't work, and it would have been nice to see some instruments being played as well as the sound, but on the whole it was wonderful. The exposition downstairs explored a very interesting theme: animals in music, which was milked to the bone. There was even a panel that showed composers with an animal as a name!

Walking down Karmeliska you come across this wonderful museum called České Muzeum Hudby housed in a great looking building ,it's actually home the Czech Museum of Music ,it's also a beautiful building that's just a joy to view .
The building itself is a former church constructed around about the 17th century ,The Church Of Mary Magdalene ,it's a great example of Baroque architecture at it's best ,very photogenic ,makes for some great photographic opportunities ,although I never ventured into the museum as it was closed when I passed it I was impressed with the building ,took a few photos before moving on ,it's easy to locate along Karmeliska and well worth checking out if you're in the area.

Visited with a fellow musician. Enjoyed the exhibits. We read everything and played with everything we were allowed to.
All staff extremely helpful and friendly.
The cafe is also quite nice.

A not very big museum, housed by the building of a former church. The building is imposingat the inside part but only in a few rooms on the ground floor and the first floor are exhibits. You need about an hour to see everything (if you are not a fan of musical instruments and want to read all the details). There is a cloackroo, where you can leave your luggage for free, a small souvenir shop and a cafe. The museum has quite a few old and interesting musical instruments, including an Amati violin from 1650.
