Czech Museum of Music

in detail

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.

Anyone who enters the building is struck by the grandiose assembly hall and the special magic left behind by changing eras. The National Museum has taken the unique opportunity to revitalise this space – once decorated with Baroque masterpieces and resounding with purportedly one of the biggest organs of 17th century Prague – with music once again.
