Gustav Mahler's House

Gustav Mahler (1860–1911), one of the world’s most famous composers and conductors, lived in today’s Gustav Mahler House until 1875 when he left for Vienna to study at the music academy. A memorial plaque marking Mahler’s 100th birthday anniversary was installed on the house frontage in 1960.

The building is currently administered by the town of Jihlava. The Gustav Mahler House was opened to the public in September 2008, after the reconstruction of exhibition premises. The second phase in the reconstruction was carried out in 2009 when further rooms and exhibitions were opened. The building houses a permanent exhibition about Gustav Mahler, as well as original work of the artist and fashion designer Thea Wetner, Gustav Mahler’s relative. The house also regularly hosts short-term shows accompanying the permanent ones. Visitors can make use of a library and a research room where they can learn more about Mahler, his contemporaries and times.
