A nice but short experience

An museum excursion duration of 45 min with Becherovka tasting and basement tour. All in all, ok. Would recomend after a nice lunch :)

Yes, you get a part of its history, but I could live without it, just what you could find on the Internet. Inconvenient upfront planning/booking, and in view of the size of the museum I do not understand why they do not run the tours more frequently. So be aware for upfront reservation if you want to come here.

First of all you will have to wait for the beginning of the excursion. All the excursions are possible only with the guide who speaks just one if the international languages. For example you are Russian but now it's the time for German excursion. In this case you will be given the audioguide. The location is not very comfortable, but... More

It was interesting to find out more about this healthful and tasty liquor. Very comprehensive and they let you taste samples while viewing a film at the closing of the tour. Their new addition 'Ice and Fire' is unique and delicious!

You need to plan the day before. Check the tour schedule.Not many tours per day. Highly recommended tour. Ends with a tasting of all the products. Do not miss

One of the highlights of my trip to the Czech Republic. They give a great history of the Becherovka brand, the family business, and how it affected the town. Then they get into a good, detailed description of the distillery's process, and finish with a tasting of their products. It's a cheap, fun way to see some of the history... More

The tour starts with viewing an exhibition of old bottles, handwritten recipe books and old memorabilia.... More

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.
