This is great infotainment for the whole family. Though it calls itself a museum, a booking gets you a fabulously funny, informative, and interactive workshop. It is very hands-on, but not intimidating! There are English-language workshops at 14:00 each day, and the day I went, there were visitors from France, Belgium, Israel, and Germany. Apart from getting your hands (or fists) in the dough, and tasting the famous St. Martin's Croissant, there's even a prize if you guess the correct weight (which I did, by some fluke)!

We visited this museum as my son wanted to try the world famous croissant.
From booking and paying for our tickets at the entrance to the museum we didnt stop laughing.
The lady taking the bookings was great fun as was the chef we paid for ourvtickets and went in to the museum.
The chef took us through how we make the famous croissant and he got audience participation yeah you guessed it me my wife and brother in law were all picked from the crowd and had to put hats and aprons on and wait for our part of the croissant making process. I was asked to roll out the dough with the worlds smallest rolling pin. My brother in law was askes to pipe the filling in and my wife was asked to cut the croissant with a massive sword again very funny once the croissant is complete you get to taste ones the created earlier and you get a certificate to say your allowed to make the croissant.
Had a great laugh and would recommend a visit to this museum

It is not a museum in the traditional sense of the word. In fact, it is a kind of presentation conducted in the good old style in which the main roles are played by the people running this museum. They tell the stories of St Martin Croissants with a pinch of salt. Well, the humor, energy and commitment of the guys who run this show are beyond any imagination. Great show where you too are involved in the production of croissants. The place itself is great and a tourist attraction worth recommending.

Having heard it was a Croissant “museum” I decided to make it my first stop during my day trip to Poznań. But when I got there and approached the ticket booth, I was immediately confronted by man who told me rather abruptly that it wasn’t “…an exhibition but rather an interactive experience,” and that “if you don’t understand Polish it would be totally pointless for you. We have English tours on weekends, come back then.”

I understand that there’s only certain days of the week the tour is in English. But why call it a museum when it clearly isn’t, and why be so rude when approached? I definitely won’t be returning.

Visited with my friend and we are still wandering why it’s called a museum?!?! (I am happy I am not the only one who thins so).
Doesn’t have nothing of a museum, it’s a theatre show that is held once a day.
It’s more for children then for adults.
Reservation is a MUST (don’t follow the guidelines on their site where it’s stated that is recommended).
We gave a friendly advice to the rude lady at the entrance that it would be nice to mention on the site that reservations are needed. She was very rude, unfriendly and even sarcastic. Traveling often I was extremely surprised by her behavior.
Croissants are delicious, no two ways about it. I advise you to use your money for croissants rather for this “museum”. ;)

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. It was more of a show than anything else. Very informative and done really well. The two guys hosting were absolute jokes, full of little quips, great sense of humour and cultural awarenesss. I would almost describe it as a British sense of humour, some of the references seemed to go over the heads of everyone else in the room! We enjoyed it so much, we’ve already had a go at making our own St Martin croissants at home. Highly recommend.

Very entertaining tour. Two guys who were running the show were very funny. The tour allowed me to learn a little bit more about Polish, Poznan history and the local dialect. We also made Rogale Marcinskie and tried them afterwards. Well organised.

Amazing museum! Great history, amazing people with charyzma, passion and humor. However the reservation was useless. We had reservation but we still were the last ones to buy the tickets and last one to be on the show. This was very unpleasant beginning but the rest was awesome!

The chef's here really make the event. It's good their jokes translate into English. I was one of a group of 5. We had a running commentary to make a croissant. It really is more fun than it sounds! We all did a little bit and got to taste one too. The St Martin's croissant is really tasty, but couldn't eat a whole one. Far too many calories!

Easy to locate behind the main square.

A croissant museum might not sound like a great thing to do while visiting Poznan but this turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Instead of wandering silently around dusty old exhibits you get a fun filled demonstration of how this traditional Poznan delicacy is made by genuinely funny staff with lots of audience participation and of course a chance to sample the delicious treats. I definitely recommend this place to children and grown ups of all ages. You wont be disappointed
