Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Was surprised it was called a museum since it looked more like a bakery than anything. They make their own gingerbread and sell them. There are lots of different and interesting forms available throughout the shop. There are also a few which are immaculately decorated. One side has the pre-packaged stuff while the counter has the single cookies. There is also a small shop at the back of the museum.
Quite an interesting stop particularly if you like gingerbread.

I thought this was museum but it's really more a shop. It has tons of really cool gingerbread designs. You can buy gingerbread men but also women, and animals, and scenes like a nativity scene. It is impressive the variety. Also it smells really good! The staff were very nice.

Really charming unique little place with - everything ginger bread- all around you. In baskets, on shelves and display cases, it even decorates the walls. Elaborate creations, such as the Prague Castle will delight children.
I stopped there several times over the years, because we were passing by on our way to the Castle.
They seemed to have remodeled and I preferred the original set up. They use to have seating in the front room and one could order coffee and sweets at a counter. The order was then served on the traditional Bohemian porcelain with the blue design. Really nice touch.
Without that option I stop by just to take a quick look.The elaborate cookies are nice to look at and appreciate the handiwork.
A short stop is all you need to see this "Museum". Ladies and kids will linger a little, guys will most likely be bored...

If you like gingerbread cookies this is the place for you, they are not only delicious but a piece of art. They have all kinds of sizes, shapes and decorations and they can also be used as a souvenir from Prague.

You can't miss it on the way down from the Castle to Mala Strana! Not a museum but an incredible shop full of gingerbread biscuits in all sorts of shapes and decorations. You can even dip your gingerbread man in the chocolate fountain ...delicious :)

I was excited to buy a gingerbread man cookie. I approached the cashier who was adding some piping to a cookie. My cookie came to 30 korunas (£1) and I only had a 100 koruna (£3) note. After I apologised for not having exact change, the cashier threw down her piping bag and yelled at me, 'now I have to go to the back of the store to find you change!!!'. Needless to say, I left the cookie with her and told her to forget about it.

I sought this 'museum' out, only to find a small shop where you can buy gingerbread cookies in various shapes and sizes and a member of staff who was completely uninterested in assisting me or answering any questions. So go and buy gingerbread cookies in novelty shapes and colours, but don't expect anything else.

What a lovely little shop in a beautiful part of town! And, like a hidden Easter egg or bonus, right to the left of the shop is an ATM with the most excellent exchange rate we found anywhere in Prague. We were "forced" to come back daily and purchase cookies:) The museum has the feel of stepping into a favorite grandmother's home, shabby chic with doilies. The cookies are bright and gorgeous, almost making you skip eating them but not quite! They're way too delicious to forgo! In addition, there were lovely wool roving angels and fairies for purchase as well as tea drinking essentials and other kitchen goods. I must admit to buying a large bag of decorated cookies to take home on the place and having eaten more than my share before I landed! The kids loved them and boy to they ever compliment a cup of coffee or tea. In my opinion it's a delightful little place that you must visit on your trip!

We popped in on our way back down from Prague Castle. As many others have noted, the so-called is a shop selling many different gingerbread designs - all rather expensive. We bought a few to take back home but they weren't at all well packed and we had to find out own box to pack them in for the flight back to the UK. Rather disappointing, although they did have an amazing choice of gingerbread/cookie cutters which I couldn't resist.

We were disappointed, as this was not a museum. It was just a shop with a ton of different gingerbread creations. In fact, if you are in Prague during Christmas, they are the same ones you see at all the Christmas stalls around town. So, while the creations are really cool, this place is rating of poor is because it is not a museum (or unique) considering you can see these items throughout Prague.
