Why do we recommend this museum?

T he museum underwent a major overhaul and was reopened in 2016. The communist ambiance is now history. The new edition of the exhibition is modern, insightful, and informative. Importantly, the labels are not only in Polish but also in English. For German-speaking guests, there are audioguides available.

The exhibition is also limited to the essentials and is divided into four groups. You won’t be bombarded with information, and you can still take away something meaningful in the end. Most importantly, you learn a lot about the city itself. The exhibition doesn’t just focus on history.

The highlights of the museum are the original zinc Mermaid (a bronze copy stands on the Market Square) and the observation point on the top floor.

Exhibition of miniatures



The museum is completely accessible after the renovation. However, the Old Town is not. So, be prepared that individuals with limited mobility may need assistance to reach the museum.

For people with wheelchairs or walkers, there is a different entrance accessible from Nowomiejska Street. When you stand in front of the main entrance of the museum, turn left, then turn right at the end of the facade row, and after 50 meters, you will see a niche entrance on the right side with a disabled symbol on the wall and a doorbell (Polish: dzwonek).
