  • I recommend booking in advance, if you want to explore in the Czech language. We took part in the German, we recorded audio tour, and it wasn't bad, just missed the contact with the Guide. The Lady tour guide but was very helpful and answered all questions and offer other attractions at a time when German tourists viewed the Museum's.

  • Cute, aromatic, tasting provided, a fun and easy to follow documentary to watch at the end. Really small though. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Was very nice but unfortunately a bit short. The leadership itself has lasted only 15 minutes. You could see some things in the connection independently. Then was the tasting of 3 products, during a short film. It is interesting in any case and at a price of 120 crowns (about 5 euros), you can not complain.
