Well, not much of a museum but definitely a tick off the To Do list at this wonderful little town. There is an entry fee, which you will recover at the end of the tour while tasting their lovely medicinal alcohol. You can skip, if the time is at a premium.

Here you will have the chance to see a bit about Jan Becher and the famous Becherovka. You can taste the liquor and even eat at this place. It is not a must go, but if you have enough time it is also worthy.

Really small museum with prices so much updated. Restaurant the same expensive, not like next to them. A bit overpriced for showing few rooms with some old stuff inside.

Actually, I thought the place is big, but I was wrong. It was small. The museum only shows how this drink started until it became popular here in Czech Republic. Basically, its more on history of the Becherovka and it doesn't really take long. The perk of this tour is you'll be able to try different kinds of Becherovka for... More

Be careful, this is not a museum! I experienced this property when it really belonged to Becherovka with very interesting excursion to its undergrounds where Becherovka was really produced in old traditional barrels. It had a magic and authenticity. Becherovka is not producing here anymore! The factory was moved a couple of kilometres away and this building has a new... More

I liked it was not too long, there were said just really important points on the tour. Tour included degustation, We got three products, and there was a possibility to pay 30 crowns for tasting other. I liked Cordial the most. =)

Tour is well arranged, has lots to show and after that you'll see film with liqueur tasting. You will get a chance to taste all 5 Becherovka brands and movie isn't very long, so be careful if you've rented a car. Staff speaks good English and knows what they're talking about. I would definately recommend

The almost whole guided tour was about how good are new tastes of Becherovka and how cool it is Jan Becher. Very little about history. Degustation was good - three tastes were provided.
