Hop Museum Reviews
Ochotný a milý personál. Obě starší dámy jsou na svém místě. Krásné a zajímavé prostory postupně členěné na jednotlivé procesy/ postupy pěstování a zpracování chmele. more »Friendly and helpful staff. Both older ladies are in their place. Beautiful and interesting spaces gradually broken down into individual processes/procedures of cultivation and processing of hops.
Jeto už pár let co jsme navštivili Žatec a samozřejmě chmelařské muzeum jeto moc pěkné a spousta dojmu more »It's been a few years since we visited Žatec and, of course, the Hop Museum is very nice and a lot of impression
Zatec is in the heartland of the Saaz hop so this is an ideal place for this extensive overview and collection of equipment from the hop industry. On 3 levels of an old “Hop house” you can see the history of hops from the Middle Ages; hop breeding, farming and pathology; agriculture implements and farming methods ; hop cone treatment, drying and processing. The exhibit labels are also in English and the 6 page handout at the entrance explains the exhibits. It’s amazing the agriculture and industry behind one of beer’s key ingredients. Then go next door to the bar to taste...! 🍻😉👍
Not to be confused with the Temple of hops and beer, which is located next door. We were unfortunately mistaken and paid for the regional museum a small entrance fee (plus no discount for students) before we found out that we are next door. :) The topic of hops is actually elaborated in detail, but as a non-expert I really did not take it too much. There is no more explanatory explanation of some machines and procedures that I would appreciate more than a label for some items that it is a table or leather shoe. Yes, the building itself is beautiful and a few exhibits quite interesting, but for the money and time it did not stand. The style of the museum, which returns several decades back, perhaps only with the difference that there are no showcases or borders of exhibits. For the dismal I also consider some services such as the lack of dressing room (in the modern museum according to me the absolute basis) or WC without a key.
