Charming Villa Amerika hosts a permanent exhibition concerning the life and work of Antonin Dvorak.

In Villa Amerika, you will be charmed not only by its late Baroque architecture, but also by nice chamber exhibition of music manuscripts and personal belongings of the famous composer Antonin Dvorak.
If you admire Antonin Dvorak´s music, don´t miss chamber operatic concerts of Dvorak´s music held in the nice little concert hall of the museum!

Villa Amerika was built in 1720 as a summer palace for a Prague nobleman Jan Vaclav, Count Michna from Vacinov. A strong structure of the building and its fine decorations reflect the French style of the era, while its small scale, elegance and intimacy already announce future Rococo ideas.
The villa is named after the restaurant "Amerika" set up here in 1826. In mid-19th century The City of Prague bought the villa, which served gradually to different purposes, until finally after the WWII the Antonin Dvorak Museum was settled here. Nowadays, this permanent exhibition gives details of Dvorak´s personal life and work, as well as his concert and educational activities. The Museum also houses a unique collection of sheet music manuscripts and correspondence. In a small shop you can buy various souvenirs, printed sheet music and numerous recordings of Dvorak´s compositions.
