„I am sure that the Museum’s and Historic Underground’s Easter programs will be much appreciated. It is the ideal chance to spend a family weekend or Easter Monday in a pleasant and fun atmosphere. And that applies even to people who already saw the tours. This time, the visit will be enriched by Easter motifs that might be sought by the visitor during their visit. The visitors will have a chance to remember traditional Easter customs not only in the form of texts; they will have an opportunity to throw eggs into a sack, or to recognize spring plants,“ Tomáš Raboch of Plzeňsky Prazdroj described the festivities.
The visitors may look forward to non–traditional tours at Beer Brewing Museum and Pilsen Historic Underground also during the following spring months. Next to Easter tours, the Pilsen Historic Underground’s Museum trail runs a special tour inspired by the art of alchemy from April 1 to May 31, 2012. Both trails then also organize the very popular Night at the Museum.
Discounted student fee is 40,- CZK per person for all tours with programmes (teachers accompanying the groups are free). You can find more information about all visitor tours at http://www.prazdrojvisit.cz/cz/pivovarske-muzeum/ and www.plzenskepodzemi.cz.
