Your Support

We invite you to become involved in this exciting project that will create a dynamic environment for international scholarship and learning in the heart of Europe.

Your support will enable the Lobkowicz Collections to further its mission to protect, preserve and share the internationally renowned castle and collections, and the exceptional archive representing the history of Europe over 700 years. Resources you provide will also create the opportunity to explore the life of internationally recognized composer Antonin Dvorak for musicians, enthusiasts and the general public. 

The Lobkowicz Collections will acknowledge all gifts and donors to the Lobkowicz Library and Study Center, as well as the Dvorak House Museum and Music Academy. Benefactors may decide to give to the project as a whole, or to support a particular element of it. The collections would always be open to discussing opportunities for other forms of recognition with donors. In certain cases (including bequests and legacy gifts), the collections may consider naming a space in honor of a benefactor or family.

If I could wave a magic wand, I would... help you to restore your buildings, to research and review all that is contained in your archives, to conserve the many phenomenal objects in your collection, to translate the indomitable spirit of the Lobkowicz family to the world, and to demonstrate what true grit and intelligent persistence can achieve
