Fine Egyptian collection too

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.

Went to the museum with my son during Museum Night. It was packed but we had still fun. The museum is fairly small but keeps a couple of nice artifacts. In 1h you should be able to see it all. Nice is the Patio with an Egyptian obelisk.

Unfortunately a rather unfriendly, unhelpful receptionist, mature so she should know better, was our first point of contact, following which we lost most of our enthusiasm for the place. We later found we were entitled to a complimentary audio aid which would have added to the visit which she didn't tell us about. Otherwise an interesting place.

We stopped here for a short visit and were pleasantly surprised. Think we were the only ones there, so had time to enjoy without the crowds.

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.

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.
