Museum tour with afternoon concert...
Incredible museum and concert performance! Very memorable experience. Did this event on the first day of our five day visit in Prague. Almost did it again on our last day when it started out threatening do be a rainy day... but it cleared beautifully... so we walked the Charles Bridge as planned.
The concert was excellent and the surroundings accentuated the event. The performers were in normal clothes, so don't expect them to be in renaissance costume for the performance. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the castle and seeing all the musical artifacts the family had on display. Some of Beethoven's original works are simply priceless. Highly recommended.
The museum was very interesting and well organized into logical rooms - portraits, china, armory, etc. The audio was made more personal with the comments from the palace's current owners. The concert was just ok - it consisted of a piano, flute, and violin. The flute and piano player both had solos. The sound of the flute, for me, soon gave me a headache. The musicians walked on and off stage in between numbers. At the end the musicians walked off the stage. End. The people in the audience sat there wandering if that were the end. Would I recommend? No
What an amazing tour combo this activity was during our trip. It was well organized and completely worth while. We just loved the concert, extremely talented and professional musicians!! The museum tour was very interesting! You also get a discount coupon for the cafe which was a perfect ending.
This tour was the highlight of our trip to the Prague Castle complex. The timing, at 1 pm, is perfect after touring Circuit B of Prague Castle. We enjoyed the opportunity to sit down and listen to beautiful music. The Lobkowicz Museum is a gem, and we learned a lot about Beethoven. We were unaware that we have Prince Lobkowicz to thank, as Beethoven's patron, for the great Beethoven scores we enjoy today.
