This was a very interesting museum about the history of food preparation starting with primative humans to the present day. I learned a few things, and it made me appreciate our modern kitchen. The owners and staff speak good English. Overall, I would say that it is worth giving it a go.

We discovered this little museum one afternoon while exploring the streets of Prague. We were fortunate enough to meet the gentleman who founded and set up the museum. This has a well thought out history of cooking and food and drink covering coffee to wine and including a beer tasting. The culinary hall of fame for Czech chefs and internationally... More

During a recent study abroad trip to Prague, I arranged for a tour of the Gastronomy Museum for my students, as well as an instruction session re: how to make a traditional Czech dish. To be frank, I am not a foodie and was not really looking forward to spending time at the museum. However, I am very glad I... More

We decided to visit here as it was near our hotel and we have been to Prague a few times and we wanted to do something different. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the museum which is interesting and very informative. We were also lucky enough to do a short dumpling making class which I'd noticed on the website but... More

Thanks to owners, my visit was good... They are very courteous and friendly. Inside the museum there is not so many interesting materials to see, but I liked anyway because it was possible to learn more about czech costumes.

We spent almost two hours looking around this very interesting, yet small museum. We were made to feel welcome by the owners and were lucky enough for the owner to share his knowledge with us. The museum is laid out chronologically- from the Stone Ages to today. Don't miss the demonstration kitchen upstairs and take a peek in the small... More

What a great find! The museum is charming - from the friendly staff, including the manager/owner, to the comprehensive exhibits. The interpretation is a great walk through time from prehistory to today, which is ambitious in a small museum, but it works well. There is a lot to read and look at, and it's easy to move at your own... More

We decided to visit the Gastronomy museum after finding it on tripadvisor, however it was rather disappointing in my opinion. The museum presents the history of cooking from the paleolotic era to present but there was too much reading to do and it felt like I was reading from a Wikipedia page. You have the opportunity to read about the... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this museum. It was well worth paying for the guide to take us round as his subject knowledge was great and there was not a questions he couldn't answer. He was also really friendly. This museum includes information about the history of cooking, cook books and table manners etc. There is also a modern... More

A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city.
