Amazing place which can replace tourist into Medieval Age. Interactive museum od cery intresting for all kind of visitors: children to seniors. You have to go upstairs- there's no lift inside but Guide gives many stops for little break before next part of stairs climbing.

One of the main historical attractions of Opole, recently modernised and equipped with some information media (sound, shadow, CGI panoramic view) is a "must-see". And worth visiting, as it offers a great story of Silesian history (between Czech, German, Polish, Jewish, Austrian, etc influences), and...More

The exhibition seems to be very well organised. However it seemed to me a bit rashed through. Must visit next time and confirm my first impressions. Definitley interesting.
