The museum has an excellent audio tour with headphones. It was fun to learn about Poland's history in more depth and see artifacts recovered from near by. My children, 10 and 9 years enjoyed it very much. The museum was very inexpensive and was very comfortable.

If you are into Egyptian history, this is not a museum to miss. I think it is a bit undervalued as attraction of the city.

So much interesting stuff is off the main town square which is essentially one sprawling restaurant. This was a pleasant surprise with four main exhibition rooms, Ancient Poland, an Egyptian display (very well done), a Sudanese desert display (interesting rock carvings), and a room dedicated to a famous Polish archaeologist (whose name escapes me). There is also an adjoining cafe... More

The whole museum consists of 4 rooms, half of which is filled with miniature models of various aspects of life of "ancient people". The target audience of the exhibition is 10-15 year-olds, so if you already know how they made fire or weapons, you really don't need to visit this museum.

I've first visited this museum when I was 12 and now, nearly 20 years later it was just as great. The place is interesting to both adults and kids. A lot of displays are interactive and there is a kiddy trail to follow so the little ones don't get bored. Highly recommended.

It was so much better than we thought it would be just by looking at the outside of the building, a little more english would've been helpful but on the whole fabulous.

Super museum with something for everyone, excellent way to learn about early way of life in Poland and surrounding area. Well worth the entry fee, try the front door it may be closed but the museum is probably open.

We were just walking around the small streets of Old Market Square and we bumped into this building. I am a sucker for museums so convinced my sister and cousin to go. We had a lot of fun!

I went to Poznan in Poland mostly to view the Republic of Ireland V Croatia and the way things panned out I went to view the Museum. Perhaps Poznan isn't everybody's choice for a vacation, but do go there and experience the people who are genuinely happy to see you and show you around. The museum itself contains a lot... More
