Antonín Dvořák Birth House

Step into the childhood of one of the greatest composers of all time and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds that inspired his future music. 

The Baroque birth house of celebrated Czech composer Antonín Dvořák, adjacent to Nelahozeves Castle, is a very significant destination for music lovers worldwide. In 2019, the non-profit organization Lobkowicz Collections, o.p.s., reclaimed management of the building and will transform this important landmark into an international musical heritage site, with an inspiringly conceived museum and cultural center offering dedicated music education courses, workshops, concerts, and community enrichment programs. 

We believe the re-birth of Dvořák’s house and legacy will inspire future generations, leaving an indelible mark on the musical landscape in Central Europe and beyond. The site will open in June 2024.
