Reviewed April 28, 2013

Shraming lite place I stumbled over by near accident. Smal but good enough to give you an overwiev on gastronomic history.

“Unique experience you shouldn't miss”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Having the opportunity to visit Gastronomy Museum in Prague multiple times, I have to say that every and single time it's been a real pleasure - no matter if it was for evening wine tasting in its premises, tour throught the museum to learn about history of gastronomy or the brilliant visit when the owner Ladislav, amazing man putting his heart & passion into this project, offered me a guided tour and made me a cappuccino in the end.

I always enjoy the special athmosphere in the museum. Focusing on the tour and exhibits itself, it's been entertaining and learning experience at the same time, as the tour is reasonably long and focuses on relevant level of detail.

I just could recommend a visit of this unique place when you'll be in Prague, as I did to number of friends and contacts, both local and from abroad. Im sure you'll have a great time! :-)

“Absolutely lovely!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

A great little museum, full of interesting tit-bits of information and fun exhibits. Run by a family with a history in cooking and Gastronomy who are very helpful, one women went so far as to phone their chef to get the lowdown on their amazing meringue recipe. Good for families and foodies alike, get the word out this museum needs to be seen!

“One of the few private museums worth visiting.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is one of the rare gems - a private museum that is actually worth visiting. Tells you the story of gastronomy from prehistory to modern ages. For me, many of the exhibits are things I remember from my grandmother, but for teens and kids, this must be even more interesting. I recommend going in group and paying for a guided tour or looking up online a special guided tours they offer at regular price from time to time (I did just that and it really adds a LOT to the overall value of your visit).

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

An intelligent and thought provoking little museum dedicated to all things to do with one of the most essential of human activities: eating, cooking and the preparation of food. Located close to Prague's main tourist routes adjacent to Namesti Republiky and housed in a delightful former mini 'palace' of architectural merit in its own right, the exhibits take you through the evolution of food preparation technology from pre-history to the present, with descriptions in both Czech and English, and with some surprising diversions along the way, such as the sections dedicated to the Czech brewing and distilling industries, the Czech heritage in haute cuisine and a state of the art demonstration kitchen used by schools, professionals and specialists to enhance the visitor experience. Well worth devoting a couple of hours from your tourist schedule. A haven of thought-provoking delight and discovery, perfect for a family group, solo or en masse, with something for everyone.
