Antonin Dvorák Museum
Ke Karlovu 20,

If there is a Czech composer that is known by foreigners, it's probably Dvorák. The ground floor displays cover the composers life with memorabilia, photographs, some of the authors gowns. Upstairs is a fresco decorated recital hall.

The Baroque styled building was built by the famed Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer whose buildings can be found all over Prague and although restored now to its former glory was, unbelievably, once during the 19th century a cattle market.

The Jewish Museum
Jáchymova 3
Prague 1
tel: 2481 0099

Mon - Sat, 9 am - 4:30 pm

This museum is quite expensive to visit by Czech standards, but it is worth the price and the tickets do actually give you admission to three museums. Hitler planned to make a museum in Prague that should be "a museum of an extinct race". Therefore some of the oldest religious objects in Europe ended up in Prague, and are now a part of the collection. The first place to visit is the Old Jewish Cemetery. In this cementery lie 12.000 graves from the 15th. century to the 19th. because Jewish tradition forbids the cancelation of a grave. In connection with the cemetery you will find the Ceremonial, where you will find a collection of art created by Jews and Jewish children who was interned at the Terezin concentration camp during World War II. This is a very strong experience as you know that the artists never became adults, and they themselves knew that theirs lives were short. The ticket also includes the Klausen Synagogue, where you can see an exhibition of Jewish customs and traditions. For a separate ticket you can see the Old New Synagogue, which dates back to 1280 and was one of the oldest serving synagogues in Europe.

The largest museum in Prague and perhaps the biggest disappointment too. The museum, built in Neo-renaissance style is situated at the end of Vaclavske námestí. The museum is worth a visit only because of the fantastic building itself. You have to be extraordinarily interested in fossils and minerals to find a visit here interesting.
