The museum is quite well organized, as many museums in Poland, and tells about the special sweeties made in Torun since 1500. The story starts with the legend, and ends with industrial production documented by an interesting movie, hopefully quite old, since many operations were...More

Worth a visit. Kids will enjoy the film shows depicting how the product was manufactured. Quite an atmosphere in here too as one can imagine lives lived and working practices carried out.

The Kopernik manufacture is the most famous producer of gingerbread in Poland and not without reason. "Katarzynki" are one of the best biscuits in the world! Their other products are delicious, too. :)
