Actually you can stay in the museum for half day if you have time! They provide free English audioguide so you can enjoy the details of each display case. Each display case got their audio numbers that's why you can stay in the museum for half days! They have quite a big amount of Egyptian collections!

It proved to be a nice collection with new displays, from the Stone age, Bronze and Iron age to the middle ages. Especially the Bronze- and Iron age artefacts were nice to... More

The museum has a large collection of unique items and treasures form the prehistoric stone, bronze and iron ages found across the Wielkopolska Region. The collections continue to the medieval period. Another part of the museum contains unusual and quite impressive in size collections from ancient Nubia and Egypt. The museum itself is located in a beautiful Late Gothic/Renaissance palace... More

I really enjoyed this museum. This museum offered a great insight on some of Egypt's Archeology and the obelisk was amazing.

Luckily we ended up going to the museum on a free day but even so we only stayed about 10 minutes. The exhibits are all geared towards young children and besides a pamphlet in the exhibit off the courtyard nothing is in English. The obelisk is cool to see but the rest of the museum is confusing and dated. Skip... More

it's an interesting museum if you like history. Some about the ancient time in Europe, some Egyptian stuff and medival history of Poznan. If you just walk around it can be done realitvely fast. We had the audioguides and we only managed a third before they closed. So with audioguide at least a couple of hours! And entrance is symbolic,... More

I seriously felt like a five year old again, going through this museum. It was a lot of fun looking at the installations and (re)learning the iron age etc. I thought the Egyptian section was the best, especially the mummy and the mummy cases. Fullly recommended. Child or not :)
