This is a small museum with some interesting items - not related directly to Kopernik - maybe with exception of the 2nd edition (1566 not 1543) of his works. But there were some very intersting items from the period or a bit later - very nice furniture - loveable microscope. A nice small museum.

Interesting visit, but could be more furnished. Most of the items exposed are facsimiles. Still worst visiting if you are in town.

I was only in Torun for a couple of days and spent much time visiting my family there, so was unable to visit many of the attractions, however, walking around the town itself, was lovely. It seemed a very ordered well-maintained city, and I will go again, to see it more thoroughly.
