All great but too large groups
Aug 2020 • Couples
Fun workshops to make your own soap accompanied by a museum tour. Good way to spend time with tour children and learn something about the past and changing views on taking baths. Great and original initiative. You get tourself your own soap. The only problem was that the groups were too big so not all people saw and heard what the guide said and shown.

Super fun

We visited the museum during our vacation in Bydgoszcz and i can say it was fun. The history of soap and cleaning was presented in a very fun and explicit manner. We got to buy different types of soaps and last but not least we managed to create oir own soap.

Interesting presentation. Lot of funny stories about soap, cleaning, hygiene. Even you can do your own soap. Just a bit disappointed with young lady at ticket counter. Rude.

Amazing!
Nov 2019
I think it is one of the most folkloristic and original things to do in Bydgoszcz!
You have to book an enligh guide tour to enter so you have to provide to book it before, but it's really a good experience!
The english guide (a blondie girl) was kind, good and very willing to answer our *several* questions.

...and -spoiler alert- they let you make a piece of soap which you can keep once the tour is finished!

5/5 cum laude!

Soap and Dirt tour
Sep 2019 • Friends
The guide was friendly enthusiastic and highly entertaining. The guides English was good but sometimes it was hard to make out but did nothing to spoil the experience. The soap making and tour took about an hour and was interactive and fun and we were involved throughout. Would recommend this tour although there is a section with an adult nature so may not be suitable for children but children can be distracted with the other exhibits while this section is going on.
