“Good Things Come in Small Packages”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Dvorak never lived in this house but he is well honored at the Amerika House. I really enjoyed this museum which is indeed very small but contains enough information for anyone who wants to be initiated to this Czech composer. It contains some interesting items and anecdotes and the mural on the second floor is very impressive. Unlike another reviewer I didn’t think it was outdated and enjoyed this cute museum, inside and out. There are cd’s for sale and a few souvenirs like postcards. If you like cats you might be lucky and encounter Pusinka!

“Well worthwhile for music lovers”
Reviewed 31 May 2010

A lovely little museum tucked out of the way in the new city. A gorgeous house where Dvorak lived. Plaques are in Czech, but guides are available in several languages. I don't understand the other reviewer's problem with the exhibits. Everything is arranged very nicely, first chronologically by date, then by genre of work. Letters, scores, pictures, personal effects, etc. are plentiful. One room houses Dvorak's piano. The garden outside is peaceful. Admission is low and there is free water. The staff member was kind and pleasant.

“Need improvements on the displays”
Reviewed 29 December 2009

Reminder: it closes on Mondays.

We went there again at around lunch hour on Tuesday but it didn't open until 20 minutes pass the lunch hour (1-2pm). Anyway we enjoyed the garden and took photos while waiting for it to open. From the exterior the museum appears to be a 2-storey building - relatively small for a museum, but we didn't care since we really want to see it. Unfortunately, it's quite disappointing. We were given a very worn english booklets since all the displays are written in Czech. It wouldn't have matter too much if we were seeing real stuffs, but they were displaying replicas of his works or letters. It was also obvious the people putting together the displays didn't put much effort into them. For example, Dvorak's major milestones were put into point forms according to the year which happened; perhaps they could have research farther into what Dvorak was feeling or what was happening around him during that year... I have visited other museums displaying replicas but I enjoyed those visits, but not this one, Dvorak Museum.
