Let’s have a unique museum in Prague that is not found anywhere else!

We aim to broaden awareness of mead, our most traditional and oldest alcoholic beverage, which made the Czech kingdom famous more than thousand years ago. We want to promote quality and honest mead producers and to create a unique museum not found anywhere else.

Mead is the most noble alcoholic beverage. Did you know that in order to get one liter of mead, you need to amass so much honey that it takes 400 bees their whole lives to gather the nectar for it?

Mead is made not only here, but everywhere in the world, where people keep the bees. You will have a chance to taste dozens maybe hundreds of meads from Europe and world-wide. The museum exposition will feature history of mead production, recipes, and other interesting information from all around the world. You will become a mead expert in no time :-)

There will be no other place on Earth, where you could taste hundreds of mead varieties! It will be unique. And it can be in Prague!

What will the Mead Museum look like and what will it offer?

There will be two main rooms in the Mead Museum

  • shop and tasting room will offer meads from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and other countries. Apart from this, there will be other goods such as different types of mead, propolis salves, mead cosmetics etc., made exclusively by regional producers, small-scale beekeepers. Also on offer will be mead on tap and mead mixed drinks
  • mead exposition and history - you will be introduced to the whole process of mead production – from beekeeping and honey collection to the production and its variations, all available on information panels.
  • tasting evenings and other events will be held on the premises

To help you imagine the Mead Museum interior, we placed the initial designs from our architects next to the campaign. We can already imagine it done!

Support us, share us, so we can have a glass of the best mead together in our place this spring.

  • February 2016 – we are working on interior changes required by authorities in order to be used as a museum
  • March 2016 – Mead Museum’s new logo and identity in preparation
  • April 2016 – opening of mead and honey shop in a special mode
