I loved this tour, it was an interesting trip to the past. A lot of history and legends. I highly recommend to take this tour
The kids loved going down into the cellar to see the old secret alchemy lair, sitting below the oldest houses in Prague. The tour guide was very engaging and brought the history to life. It’s quite a short visit but we all enjoyed it. Would recommend to families.
The tour was excellent and if you want to learn about the history of alchemy in Prague in a genuine setting it is definitely the place to go. However, taking into account you can get a three hours tour in town (tip based) for more or less the same, one should be aware it is only…
Looks like an unassuming store front but opens up to a long-hidden, recently-found underground lab and tunnel area. The tour guide was great. Very informative. I tend to be claustrophobic, but this was no problem (for fellow claustrophobes).
As with many other museums in Prague, this was a great tour but it seemed over before it actually started. Especially for such an interesting and unique topic it leaves you wanting more. So it seems quite expensive in the end. That being said it's absolutely great look at…

Dear CarbonChauvinist, thank you for your review. We are very glad that you liked the tour in our museum, and your appreciation of our tourguide is especially nice of you, so thank you for this as well. You are right, the topic of alchemy is very interesting, broad and complex, so it may seem that 30 minutes is not nearly enough. The tours here are meant to be mainly an introduction to said topic, so that people can do their own reserach later and focus on the part of alchemy they prefer. Anyway, thank you again. We wish you a great day. team of Speculum Alchemiae
