About
The Division of the Museum is located in two Gothic tenement houses, one of which is supposedly the birthplace of the great astronomer, Nicholas Copernicus. One can visit there burgher`s interiors (the 16th-19th cent.) and get acquainted with their mediaeval design. Visitors can find there documents and mementos connected with the life and work of the great discoverer. In the basement of the House there is an interactive exhibition "The world of Toruń gingerbread". While visiting it guided by a townswoman tourists have opportunity to both taste and bake gingerbread, find out the details of gingerbread making history, as well as get acquainted with spices used to make this speciality of Toruń.

The museum contained lots of information of the livelihood of the people who lived in typical tenement in Torun. Further through the museum there is more information and artefacts about Copernicus. The information boards are all in Polish, English and German.
The 4D film was only in Polish - I don’t know if there are other language options during the summer months.

Be certain to buy tickest as well to the Gingerbread Hands-on Museum located in the basement ~ before the program begins, guests are asked to wait in the courtyard ~ try to position yourself near the door so you can be one of the first ones in so you can sit at the table to make your gingerbread. Also inquire of the 5 museum discount ticket.

The place is really great to see. Not only Copernicul was born here and you can see how the family used to live, but you can also learn a lot of information, there are many interactive activities.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Poland. It is a very modern, interactive museum which covers not only the man himself and his work, but also other subjects such as the period he lived in, medieval Torun, the history of astronomy, architecture, the Earth and solar system, and the other fields Copernicus was interested in, such as economics. I felt that the content was well organised and also very well translated, it's nice to see that they took the trouble to get everything translated properly. The audio guide was excellent and I would say it's definitely worth hiring one. For the money, this museum offers superb value because there is really a lot to see, I spent 3 hours here. An excellent attraction in Torun.

I wanted to visit this museum for many years and finally got a chance during my last 3 day visit to Toruń. It is an interesting place where one can learn about the great discovery of Nicolas Copernicus and see some original historical objects used by astronomers in the past. Everything is well described both in Polish and in English and the whole museum gives you an insight into the great scientific discoveries of the past and the impact they had on our civilisation.

Do not miss this excellent museum. We learned so much about Torun’s own “renaissance man!” It’s multi-dimensional and interactive. Very well done.

I think we Sent on a special day because we paid only 20 pl n per person and were given a gift pack but this aside it was very interesting and interactive. Lots of high tech stuff and even dressing up clothes. Lots of stairs though.

The house is interesting for a quick visit but there isn't much to look at and a lot of the explanation is only in Polish. My guidebook said there is a good film about the city but I didn't see any film being screened. Still, just being in a house parts of which are 500 years old is pretty cool.

this is definitely worth going to. Copernicus' house has been restored into a sweet little museum with interesting artifacts. The price is very reasonable and it's an easy walk from the town square. A good thing to do while in the home town of a famous and important scientist!
