Hidden away behind wrought-iron gates, the Dvorák Museum is housed in an elegant early eighteenth-century baroque summer palace. The exquisite russet and cream villa was designed by Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, the architect responsible for some of Prague's most beautiful churches including St John Nepomuk on the Rock and the stunning St Nicholas in Malá strana.

The building has had a varied existence (having served as a cattle market and also a restaurant), but in recent years it has been carefully restored and now contains a permanent exhibition of photographs and memorabilia of the life and work of Antonín Dvorák (1841 to 1904) from the collection of the Dvorák Society.

The ceiling of the recital hall on the first floor is decorated with a fresco, Apollo, Pegasus and the Arts, by Johan Ferdinand Schor, whilst in the garden are sculptures of the Four Seasons from the workshop of Anton Braun.
