Prague Music Museum
The Czech Museum of Music‘s new home is the former Church of St. Magdalene in the Lesser Town, built in the seventeenth century in Baroque style according to a design by Francesco Caratti. After the Dominican monastery to which it belonged was closed in 1783 the church was remodeled in stages, serving successively as a post office, a police barracks, and an archive among other purposes. An unusual symbiosis of early Baroque church architecture with functional modifications in Classical style, and the recently completed remodeling for the museum, offers visitors an effective combination of monumentality and detail. This majestic museum venue in Prague, allows your guests to wonder through the exhibit space, and take in all of its magnificence, during the event. A perfect and versatile venue for elaborate dinners or a meeting in Prague.
The exhibition presents a unique collection of musical instruments as an outstanding proof of art and craft skilfulness and as a basic mediator between human and music. Your visit of the museum will be accompanied by listening to some the world’s best musical creations. The grandiose assembly hall has been revitalised. Its stonework gleams once again, and lighting, both natural and from spotlights, shows off the true height and intricate aspects of the building and adds a sense of grandeur to a venue for a meeting in Prague. 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.
Everyone who enters this museum venue in Prague, is struck by the immensity of the atrium and the special magic left here by transformations over the centuries. The National Museum utilizes a unique opportunity to bring to life this space, once adorned by works of Baroque masters and resounding with what was reportedly one of the largest organs in Prague in the late seventeenth century, again with music.
