Luckily we ended up going to the museum on a free day but even so we only stayed about 10 minutes. The exhibits are all geared towards young children and besides a pamphlet in the exhibit off the courtyard nothing is in English. The obelisk is cool to see but the rest of the museum is confusing and dated. Skip... More

it's an interesting museum if you like history. Some about the ancient time in Europe, some Egyptian stuff and medival history of Poznan. If you just walk around it can be done realitvely fast. We had the audioguides and we only managed a third before they closed. So with audioguide at least a couple of hours! And entrance is symbolic,... More

I seriously felt like a five year old again, going through this museum. It was a lot of fun looking at the installations and (re)learning the iron age etc. I thought the Egyptian section was the best, especially the mummy and the mummy cases. Fullly recommended. Child or not :)

This museum is rather small, buy you can find a lot of very interesting exhibitions. Also during holiday they have special events for kids. Museum on Saturday is free

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.
