We were almost alone on a Friday afternoon for two hours. The Nubian exhibition was a pleasant surprise, with an ancient skeleton, weapons and textiles for display among other things. I found it amazing how rich the regional stone age archaeology is and the amber...More

So this isn't the most modern museum but there is still a lot of interesting stuff to see. If you're interested in history and archaeology this is going to interest you. If you're just a casual museum visitor you may be unimpressed. I liked the...More

This is not a great museum, at least not anymore. The exhibitions are old, and quite outdated. If you are a bit morbid, though (like me), some of the skulls and bones with diseases and old wounds might be interesting... But if you're staying for...More

We mainly visited for the observation tower, which does give a reasonable view over the city. The museum itself was laid out somewhat confusingly, and there didn't seem to be any real pattern. My main memory is of the collections of bones showing various injuries...More

Former House of Naturalists, an archaeological exhibition in the region. The largest attraction is the tower overlooking the river and the Lower Town. The building's architecture interesting. External exhibition of sculptures.

If you're trying to visit this museum and cannot find the entrance - take it as a sign. It's not worth the hassle. The entrance is hidden between stalls on the Mariacka street - facing towards Motława river - right hand side corner up on...More

The building itself is stunning and its location is great - next to Zuraw. Inside.. hmm not much to make your jaw drop if you've seen museums of other big cities. It seemed a little bit old-fashioned; if anything. I certainly would not come back...More
