This is not a great museum, at least not anymore. The exhibitions are old, and quite outdated. If you are a bit morbid, though (like me), some of the skulls and bones with diseases and old wounds might be interesting... But if you're staying for...More

Roaming around the old town streets we bumped into a poster of the Archeologigal museum. I've been a great fan of the Leningrad Cowboys - rock band who wear an extremely long pointing hair and shoes. (check Aki Kaurismäki -movie 'Leningrad Cowboys go America') Got...More

We mainly visited for the observation tower, which does give a reasonable view over the city. The museum itself was laid out somewhat confusingly, and there didn't seem to be any real pattern. My main memory is of the collections of bones showing various injuries...More

Former House of Naturalists, an archaeological exhibition in the region. The largest attraction is the tower overlooking the river and the Lower Town. The building's architecture interesting. External exhibition of sculptures.

The building itself is stunning and its location is great - next to Zuraw. Inside.. hmm not much to make your jaw drop if you've seen museums of other big cities. It seemed a little bit old-fashioned; if anything. I certainly would not come back...More

Very poor collection of common artifacts. Mainly clay pots + one mammoth tooth. A little bit of current Sudan jewellery and a tent. A little bit of amber but plenty of this you can see for free on streets of Gdansk or in Amber Museum...More

Really interesting museum. However, more guidance texts in English would make it even more interesting for visitors now capable of understanding Polish.
