Overview

The Division of the Museum is located in two Gothic tenement houses, one of which is supposedly the birthplace of the great astronomer, Nicholas Copernicus. One can visit there burgher`s interiors (the 16th-19th cent.) and get acquainted with their mediaeval design. Visitors can find there documents and mementos connected with the life and work of the great discoverer. In the basement of the House there is an interactive exhibition "The world of Toruń gingerbread". While visiting it guided by a townswoman tourists have opportunity to both taste and bake gingerbread, find out the details of gingerbread making history, as well as get acquainted with spices used to make this speciality of Toruń.

The house is interesting for a quick visit but there isn't much to look at and a lot of the explanation is only in Polish. My guidebook said there is a good film about the city but I didn't see any film being screened. Still,...More

It is just a nice house with few old furnitures, very boring, no new information and they are not even sure that it was the real house of Copernicus.

It was closed when we went but even to see the home of Copernicus is a nice treat. To see where the great mathematician and astronomer was very interesting and a good piece of history.

Stopped inside yesterday to view the birthplace of the astronomer Copernicus. Interesting to see how the family lived - from the income of a local merchant (father). This isn't a time consuming tour but would be a shame to skip if otherwise in town.

The museum gives a very good insight to the works of an industrious man. The tour is well pointed out and the information is in several languages. Definitely wortha visit.

The information and instruments are well exhibited. Anyway, it will be better if they have more english explanation.

I had a great time at the House of Copernicus, It is now a museum. Notice that there's a typical upper floor design with a balcony and/or pulley, which the residents use to lift commodities and stored in the attic.
