About the Museum

cook

The museums exploring the history of gastronomy are a novelty in their category and there are yet not many of them around the world.

We have no ambition to show sets of artefacts in a traditional museum manner; we have created a space in which we present in a gripping way to the general public the history of people’s attitude to preparing and consuming food from the times of domestication of fire to the present days.                We are looking forward to meet you in our museum ! Nina a Ladislav Provaan

Very cool information on the history of food/beer. A lot of it was specifically geared towards Czech food and chefs, which was helpful a the beginning of our trip. The staff was amazing. It was clear that they loved their job and were genuinely interested in helping us learn the most we could about the Czech Republic food & history. (Review from TripAdvisor)

FROM THE VISITORS'  BOOK OF THE GASTRONOMY MUSEUM 

The Gastronomy Museum is visited by people from around the world, both laymen and professionals in the field of Gastronomy. Among the professionals is Orest Kramarczuk from Minneapolis. Mr Kramarczuk continues the tradition of his ancestors who immigrated to the United States from Ukraine and founded the Kramarczuk's company which, among others, became famous for its delicious sausages. The fact that Orest Kramarczuk is successfully continuing their production is evidenced by being this year's winner of the award by James Beard, a famous American chef. This award is considered an Oscar in the field of Gastronomy. Mr Kramarczuk enjoyed the Gastronomy Museum very much and wish us all the best also in our Visitors' Book. He even called our Museum a gem!
