Museum of Gastronomy
The Museum of Gastronomy is Prague is a pioneering effort to bring to life the history of preparing food from the earliest times of man to the microwave age.
Visitors to the museum will see examples of the earliest eating implements and explore the culture of dining.
The museum relates the stories of the founders of gastronomy including the first cookbooks published in Europe. Special attention has been given to the Czech gastronomy where an entire gallery has been created.
I was able to sample historical beverages and food at the Museum of Gastronomy in Prague. Visitors will see a unique exhibition rich in authentic images and 3D reconstructions guiding them through cooking history from its origins. The Museum of Gastronomy has created a century old restaurant and bar that will permit the visitor to uncover the secrets of the production of beer and spirits . Visitors will learn the fate of the best chefs and their recipes. Together with their children the visitor will enjoy the old puppet kitchenette and shops.
Most impressive was the great care taken to authentically re-create the atmosphere of different historical periods of time that involved the culinary arts. The owners have made great efforts to seek out and purchase genuine period pieces to make their museum a valuable and unique experience.
The staff is very friendly and helpful as well as very well informed on the subject matter.
This is a must stop for anyone who visits Prague
