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.

The Museum is not large, rather modest, the permanent exhibitions are not sensational. Better are the temporary exhibitions. The museum's strengths is its location (in the corner of the market in the old city) and building where the museum is located! The building is unusual, it is well maintained and has an great, amazing courtyard in the middle of which... More
