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

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.

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

One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
