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

The lower level which teach you about the history of food preparation and gastronomy starting the first men is very interesting. Yiu must, however come prepared for quite a lot of reading. Then there were sections about beer, wine, coffee etc. Ahich seems like they lost their wish for investing in speciments and the main problem with the museum is... 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

I knew visiting the Gastronomy Museum in Prague would be special. I love food, and to see a whole museum dedicated to what you love is always special (I also love music, and always enjoy music museums - oh and btw, they have a great one of those in Prague too, but that is another story). However, "special" doesn't begin... More

The museum covers a history of food from the earliest time to the modern day. There are numerous interesting cooking gadgets over which to puzzle. The owners are readily available to answer questions (in English) about anything on display. Another section describes famous people in the world of gastronomy. I really enjoyed my visit here, it is a small museum,... More

A small museum with a charming clumsiness. Someone ran to us inviting us for a small introduction on cooking in medieval periods, another lady called us for a small tasting of an old licor. The museum itself showed quiet a number of artifacts from various timeframes, telling us the story of food. We found it to be entertaining and informative... More
