The exhibition charts the composer’s life stories including concert and teaching activities and focuses journeys that he took - during his lifetime, Dvořák was one of the greatest Czech world travellers. The visitor can travel along with the famous composer from his native Nelahozeves to Prague, around Europe, to America, and then back to Bohemia through the use of modern graphics and genuine personal items, such as Dvořák’s glasses, viola, piano and furniture from his study, his Cambridge graduation gown, memorial wreaths and other trophies. A multimedia wall, installed on the first floor of the palace, offers many of Dvořák’s compositions in both known and unknown adaptations, as well as a series of the composer’s own photographs, manuscripts and other personal documents.
