Fascinating history!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Szymond from the walkative tour recommended this museum because of the view from the tower. Also we were in Wroclaw on a Monday and no other museums were open !!
We opted to see all the museum - a good decision. The restored baroque rooms were beautiful - the sundial exhibits were surprising, there were 6 or 8 noble prize winners - they punch above their weight! and the history of the university was fascinating.
It was surprisingly good way to spend an hour and the cost of 14 slow was fair.

Very informative and interesting museum, staff was nice (didn’t speak much english) and the building was absolutely beautiful. It was a shame that most of it was closed for us to see but we still payed full price

Stunning baroque music hall
Sep 2019
I wanted to visit the University to see the Music Hall and the Aula Leopoldinum. The Music Room was extremely impressive and didn’t disappoint. The Aula was unfortunately undergoing renovation but it was still possible to view it from the gallery. In fact that was interesting in itself as we could see the artists restoring the frescos. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the exhibitions too. It was interesting to read about the Nobel Prize winners (helped by the internet as the information was a little limited) and some of the old professors whose names I recognised. The views from the Mathematical Tower were lovely and the exhibition bition of sundials was also interesting. I left the visit feeling I’d learned something (!) but also having seen some beautiful artwork.

Beautiful baroque halls
Aug 2019 • Couples
The highlight of Wroclaw University Museum is two baroque halls dating back to the beginnings of the institution (18th century), when it was still a Jesuit academy. One of them has been completely destroyed in WWII and then painstakingly restored; the other one can be seen more or less in its original glory.

Other than that, you can see an exhibition of scientific instruments, some Greek sculptures, and the explanation of history of the institution, as well as climb a viewing tower. All attractions are in one building and buying a ticket for all of them vs. just the halls is just a 2 PLN difference (14 PLN in total), so I'd recommend seeing everything.

One additional note, one of the halls is currently undergoing renovation, so the visit is limited to a balcony overlooking it, but you can still see most of the decorations inside, so it's still worth it.

Great Hall undergoing renovations.

The University Museum is very small. Leopoldinum Hall is impressive and fortunately not very crowded at times so one has time to actually inspect the murals closely. The Mathematical Tower was surprising and worth visiting. Climbing to the top to get a rooftop view of the city is an added bonus.

Small but worth a visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
This is not what you would imagine a university museum to be. There are four room to visit, one of which isn't so much a hall as it is a tower with views of the city. The Leopold room and the Music room are classic baroque and classically beautiful. The Leopold room includes an audioguide that explains the history and art in the room. The visit doesn't take long, less than an hour, but it's definitely worth a stop.

What a gem
Mar 2019 • Couples
Reasonably priced and what a gem, audio guide and the ticket desk young lady and the lady who set up our audio guide were so helpful. The ceilings in the celebration hall were magnificent, we enjoyed learning about it's history. It's also worth going up to the roof top to see the views,
