I found an ad for this in a tourist magazine. looked online to find the place. was shown where to find it. walked around looking for it. ONLY TO DISCOVER that is is under construction. I'm so disappointed.

Gastronomy Museum is Relocating! Dear xxx, We thank you for your interest in our museum and we understand your feelings, but due to the unbearable rent condition we are recently looking for a new facility to re-install our exhibits recently stored in depositories. Thank you for kind understanding. Sincerely GM staff. More

Came to see the museum as of the recommendations here on Tripadvisor, but it's surely not a museum anymore. All closed down and empty now in March 2016.

You wouldn't think to go in there, but a bunch of good reviews sent me looking for this gem of a museum. It's a little off-putting at first as it can be rather empty, but don't let that fool you. The museum is well-curated and interesting. The owner (I think?) showed up a bunch of times during my visit to... More

When we arrived here, the sign said "open" as did the website. However, inside was just a huge pile of construction debris and several workers pounding plaster into more rubble.

This is one of the better specialised museums that you can visit: well-composed and informative. The staff is also really friendly and you are encouraged to ask more about things that interested you. There is also quite a bit about local cooking and restaurant-history.

Very interesting museum, covering food preparation since prehistory. Very friendly and informative host. Free mead tasting. A good choice for spending an hour or two on a rainy day.

Just happened to see this in Trip Advisor. Was a great 1 1/2 hour tour learned a lot about coffee, beer, wine, and food preparation and how it has evolved over the years. Worth seeing if your here.

I am so glad I passed by this accidentally. It's a wonderfully well laid out museum and history. Covers a wide range of culinary journey and one that gives you an insight on how easy we have it now. The hosts are lovely and so friendly. I really enjoyed my visit and would encourage others to do the same

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
