Prague Alchemy MuseumSpeculum Alchemiae
Welcome to Speculum Alchemiae – Prague Alchemy Museum
At the Speculum Alchemiae (Prague Alchemy Museum), reveal the time of late medieval and early modern times, when science and mysticism were closely linked, and researchers were looking for a “higher purpose” and “harmony of the spheres”, which could help them discover the secrets of nature. Taste the secret of the Eternal Youth Elixer and bring a small piece of its magical energy into your life.
The newly opened alchemical laboratories were discovered during the reconstruction of one of the oldest historical buildings in Prague on the street Haštalská number 1. This building is listed by UNESCO and by miracle this one has been preserved after the demolition of the Jewish quarter at the end of 19th century.
Visitors have the first opportunity to see places, where alchemists produced elixir of eternal youth, Philosopher’s Stone and non-precious metals changed into gold.
Your visit contains guided tour of alchemist workshop, alchemist laboratory and mysterious catacombs.
Length of the tour: 30 minutes
Opening hours: Mon – Sun: 10am – 6pm
