When we arrived here, the sign said "open" as did the website. However, inside was just a huge pile of construction debris and several workers pounding plaster into more rubble.

This is one of the better specialised museums that you can visit: well-composed and informative. The staff is also really friendly and you are encouraged to ask more about things that interested you. There is also quite a bit about local cooking and restaurant-history.

Very interesting museum, covering food preparation since prehistory. Very friendly and informative host. Free mead tasting. A good choice for spending an hour or two on a rainy day.

Just happened to see this in Trip Advisor. Was a great 1 1/2 hour tour learned a lot about coffee, beer, wine, and food preparation and how it has evolved over the years. Worth seeing if your here.

I am so glad I passed by this accidentally. It's a wonderfully well laid out museum and history. Covers a wide range of culinary journey and one that gives you an insight on how easy we have it now. The hosts are lovely and so friendly. I really enjoyed my visit and would encourage others to do the same

The weather was bad and I had walked by this place a few times and decided to stop by. I don't remember the exact fee, maybe 160CZK? You walk through by yourself and read some history about humans and cooking and the inventions that made our culinary lives better. I found it very informative and well worth the price. I... More

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.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
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.
