Very nice old building. That's only good thing to say. Service level is of low standard, if you don't speak Polish, don't even bother to visit. Museum itself is mostly Coopernicus times related rather a person. And if you plan to visit a bathroom, you'll...More

It was very exiting for me, visit a place where Copernicus was working. He was a pillar in our prime school history lessons. So...stepping on same floors...brought very deep emotion. Hope my English is good enough to express my motions. History is one of the...More
