Overview
More
Prague is a golden, mysterious city with one hundred spires, and for all that it thanks among other to the alchemists, who belong to it inseparably. It is gold plated by their philosopher's stone produced perhaps in one of its hundred towers - in Mihulka, or maybe in Kelley's tower in the House of the Donkey by the Cradle in a mysterious laboratory. Now you can get there by visiting the Museum of Alchemists and Magicians of old Prague, where you can look under the lids of bowls of emperor Rudolf's alchemists.

It was a complete waste of time, because there is nothing interesting to see. The name of the museum makes the stakes to be high and it does not stand up for it.

I was so dissapointed in this attraction as I was interested in learning more about European alchemy. I honestly learnt nothing. I expected the museum to be interactive but you just read posters on the wall. I could have just used Google. The tour itself...More

Been to the first part of the exposition on the March, 9th. The hall was rather poor: just large text linens and a few wax figures. What also disappointed me is the attitude to the visitors. While our visit another family with 2 kids came...More

We thought this could be a good one. It wasn't. Shame. It's clear that a fair amount of money has been spent on it as there are some lovely exhibits. The 'tower tour' was hilarious as the guide was so disinterested. If you want a...More

We were quite looking forward to this and were severely disappointed. The ‘museum’ is split in to 2 rooms. 1 is the photos you see online and the other is in the tower. A roof space full of old junk and a tour guide who...More

There really isn't much to say about this 'museum' other than don't bother. What a complete hoax/let down! It's just absolute rubbish, nothing worthwhile seeing. Best part is going up the spiral tower staircase. Utter tripe!

This is only a small museum, and much more of an exhibit, but if you have any interest in alchemy, John Dee (pagan/witchcraft/enochian) or just old chemical Glassware, you won't be disappointed. I spent almost an hour reading the little displays and taking photos.
