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

I recently visited this attraction with my parents and my 6 year old daughter. My daughter found it more interesting then us adults as she was fascinated by the old age utensils/cutlery etc and the way of life as she has been learning about this at school. I was pleased that she really enjoyed it and the staff were very... More

I am a student of food studies in New York City, where a Food and Drink museum has yet to be established so it was a pleasure to see a comprehensive history of food and in Prague nonetheless! It's the only one of its kind in Europe so definitely a unique thing to see in Prague.

The staff was very nice and loved to tell us more about the different ages of the history of gastronomy. There are a lot of reading through the museum and a little too much in my opinion, although it was interesting. The museum also includes a bit of Czech food culture. If you are interested in food and gastronomy it... More

We went without expecting much. It received a lot of good reviews and being a foodie, my friend and I decided to venture there and check out this unique museum. By itself, it's very much a small private museum of various exhibits with mock ups and replicas and some actual objects from few hundred years ago. However, we didn't get... More

This small and cozy museum will guide you through the history of food preparation methods. Spoken explanations for each section and the souvenir museum store are some of the highlights.

It is a very nice museum. The descriptions are easy to read and staffs are super friendly! They talked us through some of the sections and introduced us to other great places in Prague. I would say they are the friendliest people I met during the stay in Prague :)
