Situated next to neptune's fountain and along the short cobbled street from st Mary church. It dominates the Main Street and is very imposing. It was completely destroyed in world war 2 but gas been lovingly restored and now shows the glories of medieval times exhibiting 5 centuries of exhibits

So...it is worth visiting the museum. Liked the fact that it put in context those numerous small houses with many floors Also provides information about the major reconstruction Poland had to go through. Worth 1,5 hours. Well located near every other things to check.
