    We went to explore Kutna Hora and I figured as a city built on silver, we HAD to go to the mining museum. We did not book ahead of time for an English tour and you cannot go on the tour without a guide into the caves. But we were offered a Czech tour with students but were given our own English guide to read along. However, Nicola was with us and spoke great English. She was very happy to answer our questions and offer information in English on the tour for us. She was personable and went out of her way to help us. We really appreciated her :) the mines are dark and wet, wear sneakers. I wore Birkenstocks and got a little wet but overall not bad! I wasn’t expecting to go into caves that day otherwise I would’ve prepared better. The caves can get very small and narrow. My husband is 6’1” and struggled a little when it got to a low height, but got through without any significant issues. The narrowest spot is 20 cm and we passed through without issue. Definitely not for anyone who is claustrophobic.

    The chocolate museum is a fun stop in Kutna Hora. The proprietor was really lovely to talk with and explained everything about the different chocolates we tried. It was both informative and delicious! Definitely recommend stopping in.

    As this beautiful Stately Home not far from Kutna Hora ( less than 39-min-drive)we went there having visited the Cemetery Bone Church and the. Assumption Cathedral.
    No parking charges so went straight to see the Castle. There are different tours at certain times ( check website prior to your visit)we chose the servants quarters and to see the rooms. No guided tour in English but for the stately rooms there’s an English language booklet. The tours took about half an hour, between them you can explore the herbaceous garden and the park which is a very English style one.
    Well worth a visit.

    I loved absolutely everything about Kutna Hora and it really bothers me to say anything negative at all about anything there but this place?? Upon arriving in Kutna Hora, we were armed with very minimal information about things to see and do. The Sedlec Ossuary, of course, the silver mine, and I had remembered reading something somewhere about an alchemy museum. I was quite excited about it as it's a refreshing change from the same old Catholic church alchemy one finds on every corner. Literally.

    This alchemy museum? Notsomuch. It's a couple of rooms with some zombie looking mannequin folks doing alchemy-ish stuff. I think there must be a local craftsperson who makes these museum zombies because they have Silver Miner Zombies at the silver mining museum as well. Maybe a town discount? There is also a random fiberglass (?) golem in a golem nook and a completely out of context television in a multi-faceted mirrored corridor (which was actually really very cool looking but we just could not figure out how in the world it was connected to the rest of the exhibit).

    The Good Things:

    The information about the history of the place itself is quite interesting but I really wish they had gone more in depth. They certainly could've gone more in depth on the description of what alchemy is; I found their explanation to be extremely rudimentary with regards to that.

    The location is authentic as are a great number of the instruments found in the rooms. I don't know why, but that seemed to take a bit of the edge off of the contrivance of the rest of it all.

    It wasn't an amazing experience but it certainly wasn't the worst museum I've ever been to (yeah, Vatican, I'm talking about you). I wouldn't even consider it a waste of time and money because at about $2.50US, you can look around a basement for about five minutes. No, it's not wonderful and I'm not sure that calling it a museum is accurate but it's not offensively awful.

    (I still really love you, Kutna Hora, please don't be mad at me!)

    The place is totally suitable for kids, or for some people nostalgic about Lego, such as me. My visit of the museum bought some memories, but there were also some Lego series that are new to me.
    There are some bigger and more complex Lego figures both inside and outside parts of the museum. I can imagine that the outside yard must be very interesting for kids, especially in summer, since there are possibilities to play ball sports. For adults, the yard offers a café, that I assume is open in summer. I visited the place in November and the café was closed.
    I find the placement of all texts about the original and history of the Lego a bit unfortunate. First of all, it's not very clear which text should be read after which one, and secondly, the space of the stairs is a bit narrow so you need to step back to be actually able to read anything. The stairs might be packed like that. At the same time, I understand that there is a lot of Lego showpieces and that everything is a bit squeezed in one house.
    Unless you or your kids are totally into Lego, and unless you aim to read all the information at the stairs, the visit of the museum lasts about 1 hour.

    I went into this museum without knowing that it was a museum, because they offered beautiful postcards of Kutná Hora here (you will not find postcards like this elsewhere in the town). And when I found out that there was a book printing museum, I took a tour.

    In three rooms there were old machines for printing newspapers and books, some exhibits were in the display cases and there were pictures on the wall. You could take tour with a guide or a self-guided tour. You could even print your own postcard here.

    There was available a washroom (not only for visitors of the museum). For takeing pictures you have to buy permission for 50,- CZK.

    We were both blown away by this place, it had the most amazing set up and displays. The guy who served us was very friendly and helpful. If you love Alien and Predator movies its a must see and even if you dont its still super cool.
