We had an extra hour due to poor planning with the Slav Epic, an decided to pop in here instead. Our group of four was all glad we did; it was a very interesting history of food overall, with addition elements of the history of Czech cuisine. Everyone there was very happy to talk about and help with anything. Tea... More

We visited this museum as people have left it good reviews. We had a blast. As it was -6C outside, we were greeted with hot tea! (A nice touch) It's very informative and at the end we got to taste honey wine and freshly baked biscuits. The lady who was working at the front desk was so helpful and informative.

Wow! They serve water, liquor,and food. Told about the history of european chefs who were doctors first and more. There was a guy talking about upstairs for a long time because there was a lot of information. I was surprised that people cook in that museum.

We had a very interesting tour with a guide who took us trough the history of cooking from the dawn of time right up untill today. The guide was the museum owner and at the end his wife joined in. They were both very friendly and very willing to answer all of your questions. Fun and interesting facts and anecdotes... More

We came here based upon the reviews in TA. We were not aware of it before reading about it here. What a fun museum. The people running it are so nice. The young woman introduced the displays to us, left us on our own, and popped back in a couple of times to elaborate on something, or one time to... More

If you like to cook, the Gastronomy Museum Prague is worth an hour or two of your time. We chose to do the self-guided tour, which is about $6.50 US dollars per person. The artifacts are well labeled, signs educating on history and culture well written, and we were joined by museum curators at different parts of the tour to... More

This was a great little find - we walked past one day early in our stay and checked TripAdvisor for reviews. So glad we decided to spend a couple of hours here. Fun for cooks and non cooks alike and a guide really isn't necessary. It's tiny but so interesting. If you go, it's really close to Hotel Paris as... More

Dear Ganit_w, we hope that you do not mind if we use your comment to encourage future Museum visitors to question our staff about exhibited artifacts, any extra explanation or information as well. Also there is a possibility to ask for private English speaking guide (reservation needed). Our goal is to make Gastronomy Museum to feel like a good meal. More
