The Alchemy Museum, Speculum Alchemiae, is a small but fascinating museum exploring the history of alchemy in Prague. A guided tour through will take you back in time to the Middle Ages for a while when alchemy seemed significantly more plausible. Here you can actively discover the magic of being an alchemist. During the tour, the visitors go underground to secret labs, where alchemists once tried to concoct elixirs for love, memory, and eternal youth.
The museum sits in one of the oldest buildings in Prague, located in the Jewish Quarter.
