Museums in historical buildings in Wielkopolska


Wielkopolska, frequently called the cradle of Polish statehood, has been accumulating artefacts and evidence of its past for over one thousand years. These were often aristocratic collections, or family keepsakes as well as treasures which over time became concealed deep in the ground. The first museums were established only in the 19th century. Special rooms in the castles and palaces of Gołuchów, Rogalin and Kórnik were designated to hold valuable collections of weapons, paintings and books. Museum facilities, similar to those we know today, were first launched only 100 years ago. We would like to invite visitors on interesting tours along the routes delineated by museums located in historical buildings. Because of their diversity and large number, everyone will find something of interest here Museums can be found in various types of locations, which in the past were owned by wealthy nobility, for instance in former palaces or manor houses. Some museums have been organized in old monasteries, factory buildings or town halls which are no longer used for their original purpose. Exhibition facilities of a new type include open-air museums where it was possible to save a great number of rural buildings from destruction.

Due to the large number of the museums and the size of their collections it is impossible to get acquainted with them very quickly. Indeed, while visiting a museum one needs to be patient and detail oriented. Sometimes it is a good idea to spend a whole day in one of them. The museums described here and the accompanying list of accommodation and catering facilities allow for designing custom tailored itineraries in accordance with your interests, following trails of castle museums, old palaces and mansions, famous persons, rural architecture, or vanishing branches of industry. For those who would like to see the most interesting museums in the region in a short time we suggest 3 one-day trips to different areas of Wielkopolska. Suggested routes along the trail of Museums in Historical Buildings: 1. Poznań – Szreniawa – Nowy Tomyśl – Rakoniewice – Wolsztyn – Leszno 2. Poznań – Kórnik – Koszuty – Dobrzyca – Gołuchów – Opatówek 3. Poznań – Szamotuły – Jaracz – Wągrowiec – Osiek – Piła

naissance buildings north of Italy. Its origins reach back nearly as far as the history of Poznań which received municipal rights in 1253. It was reconstructed by Giovanni Battista di Quadro from Lugano in Italy, during 1550-60. However, the tall tower crowned with a classicist spire with an eagle retains its Gothic stem. Its frontal façade in the Italian style, with a three-storey loggia is still greatly admired by tourists. Every day at noon, tourists, and especially children, wait in front of the building for another symbol of Poznań, that is the Town Hall goats. They appear at 12 o’clock and their horn-butting display is always met with great applause. The clock mechanism with the goats was installed in 1551. For centuries a seat of the municipal authorities, the town hall was destroyed and restored a number of times, and following World War II it was transformed into a museum. Its exhibitions present the history of Poznań from the 1200s to 1954 by displaying

valuable documents and handicraft collections. The exhibits include manuscripts, old prints, incunables, modern prints and brochures, books and historical artefacts. There is also a large number of photographs of people and the city of Poznań from the 19th and 20th century. Of considerable iconographic value are engravings, drawings, paintings as well as postcards depicting parts of the town and persons who rendered great service. Another notable feature is one of the largest Polish collections related to the history of municipal defensive units (socalled “riflemen fraternities”). The Revival Hall, otherwise known as the Grand Vestibule, ranks among the most outstanding examples of Renaissance-style interiors in the country. Its sail vault is covered with a series of coffers with rich stucco ornaments. The painted motifs inside the coffers make a reference to the world’s history, as well as civil virtues and duties.

The museum’s permanent exposition depicts the traditions connected with wicker growing, and the art of plaiting; we can also see here the varieties of wicker, its applications and techniques of manufacturing wicker items. Another exhibition presents the history of hop growing, the applications of hop in beer production as well as the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The museum organizes workshops and outdoor events devoted to wicker plaiting. The most popular event, which continues historical traditions of a wicker market, is the Hop and Basketry Fair organized annually in September.

Rakoniewice Wielkopolska Museum of Fire-fighting

The area of Nowy Tomyśl is characterized by the poor quality of its soil. As early as the late 18th century, people were brought from Silesia, Brandenburg and Pomerania to cultivate the land. This area has the largest number of the so-called Hauländer villages in Wielkopolska. It was these people that started growing wicker and hops, and even today in the town and its surroundings there are workshops manufacturing wicker products. We can also encounter numerous wickerwork decorations in the streets, e.g. along the Wicker Prom-

corner of the square, in a half-timbered building from 1763, formerly used as an Evangelical church. At present the museum also occupies a former school building and a few exhibition pavilions. The collection comprises over 4,000 exhibits connected with the traditions and history of fire-fighting in Wielkopolska. Particularly noteworthy are 24 horse drawn fire engines which in the past were used by voluntary fire-fighting units. Other exhibits include: fire pumps, helmets, banners, uniforms and badges. The largest exhibits, such as 25 fire engines and heavy life-saving equipment are on display in exhibition pavilions. In the museum we can also see mementos connected with towns which cooperate with Rakoniewice. Wolsztyn

Leszno. Visitors invariably are impressed by the railway turntable from 1908 which turns the heavy locomotives and directs them to the locomotive depot. The storage hall of the roundhouse has room for eight locomotives. The Wolsztyn Steam Locomotive Depot includes a water tower, coal bunkers, ash pit and workshops. All these devices are in working condition and each day two or three steam engines are ready to go. The open air exposition of steam engines currently holds approximately 30 locomotives representing 15 different series. Unfortunately, the passing of time clearly takes its toll, therefore only some of the steam engines on display are still in working order. The highlight of the collection is the PM 36-2 steam engine manufactured in Chorzów in 1937; this was the fastest Polish steam locomotive reaching a speed of 130 kilometres per hour, and it was known as “Beautiful Helena”. The building next to the roundhouse holds a small museum with various types of railway equipment and accessories. Each year in May enthusiasts of old locomotives from all over the world come here for the Locomotive Parade, where they can see a presentation of steam engines from several countries. Additionally, Wolsztyn Steam Locomotive Depot organizes train rides for tourists. Even though Wolsztyn is a small town, it has three more museums which altogether constitute the Regional Museum. In the vicinity of Wolsztyńskie Lake we can visit the

was unique to the old Polish Republic. We can also see the only Polish exposition of items related to Jan Amos Komenský and the Bohemian Brothers congregation. Yet, the museum is best known for its collection of Polish visual arts depicting rural scenes. It consists of over 800 paintings and over 250 engravings and includes works by such renowned artists as: Józef Chełmoński, Julian Fałat, Juliusz Kossak, Aleksander Kotsis, Jacek Malczewski, Leon Wyczółkowski, Stanisław Wyspiański. The most recently acquired section of the museum is located in a former synagogue and contains a Judaic collection consisting of items used for religious purposes, both in synagogues and at home, such as: Hanukkah lamps, menorahs, Torah ornaments, candle sticks, yads, as well as works of visual arts.

TRAIL NO. 2: Poznań – Kórnik – Koszuty – Dobrzyca – Gołuchów – Opatówek Poznań Archaeological Museum- Palace of the Górka Family

The museum is mainly located in two historic houses from the 18th and 19th century at J. Metziga Square. Additionally, its Art Gallery is located in the restored building of a former synagogue. The holdings of the museum are connected with the multicultural history of Leszno and its area. Operating for 50 years, the museum today has over 9,000 exhibits, and as many published works, and thousands of auxiliary materials. The museum holdings include archaeological artefacts ranging from the Neolithic period to the Middle Ages, coin treasures, numismatic collections and medals, works of crafts and arts, manuscripts, old prints, documents confirming privileges and statutes. Contemporary collections contain works of graphic arts devoted to historical themes; items related to cartography, and deltiology (view cards, picture postcards depicting patriotic scenes and ethnic groups), as well as photographs. Of great interest is the museum’s collection of 18th century coffin portraits. These were a part of traditional funerary art which

It dates from the 1540s, when a number of Gothic tenement houses were reconstructed and combined into one building. Later, when it was no longer used as a magnate residence, it was home to a monastery and a school. Nevertheless, it has retained its beautiful early Renaissance portal from 1548, and the inner courtyard with cloister arcade. The museum holds a number of

permanent expositions. The most important among these are The Prehistory of Wielkopolska and The Origins of the Polish State. The former depicts the history of this area, starting with the earliest human settlements until the end of Antiquity. A wealth of archaeological relics in Wielkopolska makes it possible for us to learn a lot about the region’s distant past and allows for the presentation of the findings in the form of an exhibition. Besides the genuine artefacts, we can see here reconstructions of dwellings, tombs and various structures, such as furnaces and workshops, as well as scenes depicting life in the distant past. Another exhibition entitled Death and Life in Ancient Egypt is a result of cooperation between the Archaeological Museum in Poznań, and the Egyptian Museum and Collection of Papyri in Berlin. The unique collection of Egyptian relics includes a 3,000 year old obelisk of Ramesses II. The museum’s latest exposition entitled The Archaeology of the Sudan presents the findings of Polish researchers working in that country and items deposited here by the Khartoum National Museum.

Kórnik Library of the Polish Academy of Sciences – Castle Museum 62-035 Kórnik, ul. Zamkowa 5 tel. 61 817 00 81, open: Tuesday – Sunday 10:00 – 17:00 The main attraction of Kórnik is its castle and park – the only fully preserved magnate residence in Wielkopolska. Its origins date from the 14th century when Mikołaj Górka built a wooden castle on a small island surrounded by a moat. It was reconstructed in stone in the 16th century, which coincided with the increasing importance of the Górka family. Finally, in the early 1800s the castle was reconstructed in the style of English Gothic by Karl Friedrich Schinkiel, a renowned architect from Berlin. Following these alterations, its owner, Tytus Działyński designated the castle to hold collections of historical artefacts. He was particularly interested in old prints and books. He also collected old weapons, works of art, paintings and coins. His son, Jan Działyński, shared his father’s passions so the castle collections grew rapidly. Jan did not have any children, so

Arranged in a sequence, the dining room, guest room, drawing room, rooms belonging to the Master and Lady of the house, and children’s room hold typical furnishings, everyday items, and paintings dating from the period up to 1939.

after he died the Kórnik estate was inherited by his nephew, Władysław Zamoyski. The new owner also expanded the collection and presented the whole estate to the Polish nation, by creating Zakłady Kórnickie Foundation. In 1953 the castle and its museum collections were acquired by the Polish Academy of Sciences. Selected rooms in the castle are occupied by museum expositions displaying items of historical and national importance, as well as collections of weapons and armour, works by renowned Polish and foreign artists, furniture of various periods, archaeological and ethnographic artefacts. The remaining part of the castle and a new annex building contain the holdings of Kórnik Library consisting of approx. 350,000 volumes. In the castle courtyard we can see two 18th century annex buildings. One of these, known as Klaudynówka, named after Klaudyna née Działyńska, holds occasional exhibitions. There is also a coach house with London-style carriages which were purchased by Jan Działyński in Paris from Lord Pembroke in 1856 for his wedding with the Duchess Izabella (née Czartoryska). The castle is surrounded by a park with approx. 3,500 tree and shrub species and variations, and known as Kórnik Arboretum; it is administered by the Institute of Dendrology at the Polish Academy of Sciences. Each year in May the place hosts a cultural event called Encounters with the White Lady. Its name makes a reference to a

legend and the person in white robes depicted in a portrait which can be seen in the castle. The White Lady was in fact Teofila Szołdrska Potulicka (née Działyńska), an owner of the Kórnik estate in the 1700s, who rendered great service to the town. Also in May, when the large magnolia collection is in bloom, the park holds an event entitled “Days of Azaleas and Rhododendrons in Kórnik Arboretum”.

The half-timbered construction was made of larch beams infilled with clay. The unique features of this one-storey mansion include brick bay alcoves placed in four corners of the building. The building is crowned with a hip roof covered with shingles. The manor house was built in 1760 for Józef Zabłocki, who owned Koszuty at that time. We can see here a permanent exposition entitled “Small nobility-style dwellings in Wielkopolska” which presents furnishings


also presents some eminent persons connected with this area: Jan Henryk Dąbrowski, Antoni Amilkar Kosiński, Edward Raczyński, Ryszard Berwiński and others. Dobrzyca Museum of Landed Gentry in Dobrzyca Palace and Park Complex 63-330 Dobrzyca, ul. Pleszewska 5a tel. 62 741 30 39, open: Tuesday - Friday 10:00 – 17:00, Saturday - Sunday 10:00 – 18:00. The museum is located in a large palace and park complex from the late 1700s. On the outskirts of the park there is a unique silhouette of a Classicist-style palace which was erected in 1795-99 to the design by Stanisław Zawadzki for General Augustyn Gorzeński. In earlier times its owner had been an adjutant of King Stanisław August and a co-author of the Polish Constitution of 3rd May 1791. The L-shaped layout of the palace makes a reference to the Masonic square and to the fact that Gorzeński held the post of Grand Master in the Masonic Lodge. The entrance to the palace has the form of an imposing Tuscany-style portico, typical for Classicist architecture, located at the junction of the square arms. The conservation works, which were completed in 2005, restored the interior decorations, possibly the most so-

can look towards several Romantic-style buildings: a Masonic Lodge, with a circular floor plan, modelled after the Pantheon in Rome; monopteros with eight columns, built on an island of a nearby pond; an annex building covered with a Kraków-style hip roof, and an artificial grotto over another pond. Dating from the same time as the palace, the Romantic-style landscape park, which currently is being restored, features 35 trees granted with the status of natural monument. The largest of these is a London planetree which apparently was planted by Gorzeński himself, in honour of the Constitution of 3rd May. The thickest tree in Wielkopolska, it has a girth of 960cm and is 27 metres tall. Since 2002

Antique and Renaissance architectural and decorative elements purchased in Italy and France were built into the castle’s walls.

Some of the collections were relocated from Hôtel Lambert, the Czartoryski family estate in Paris, and some holdings were purchased. The most valu-

Additionally, a 19th century annex building, sometimes called “the palace” (the Czartoryski family dwelled there until 1939) holds the Forestry Museum. Attractions of Gołuchów include an enclosure for wisents in the vicinity of the park. Opatówek Museum of Industrial History

able was Jan Działyński’s collection of antique Greek vases which he granted to his wife as collateral for a loan. The castle has been home to the National Museum since 1962. The exhibits which now can be seen here partly originated from the old collections owned by Izabela Czartoryska and partly were transferred here from the National Museum in Poznań. The expositions in the cellars and on the ground floor are modelled after the 19th century collections devoted to various styles. The exhibits on display here include artefacts from various countries, e.g. Spanish and Portuguese furniture, Flemish tapestries, French portraits as well as Chinese and Japanese decorative vases. The museum’s highlights include its collection of Gothic furniture, a great rarity in Poland, as well as the room with Greek vases. Unfortunately, the latter collection, which in the early 20th century consisted of approx. 250 exhibits, today holds only slightly more than 50 vases. The castle is surrounded with the largest landscaped park in Wielkopolska comprising an area of 162 hectares. Originally, it was partly designed as a decorative garden and its other part constituted a dendrologic park – the latter was established by Jan Działyński, who also created the park in Kórnik. The park comprises approximately 1,000 species and

Upon entering the park in Gołuchów we may feel as if we were visiting one of the famous châteaux in the Loire Valley. One of the few surviving Renaissance castles in Poland, the aristocratic residence in Gołuchów is also one of the best preserved architectural jewels of that period. The castle built on the bank of the Trzemna river ca. 1560 was a seat of the Leszczyński family, who over the years partly reconstructed the building. Later, the deteriorating castle was purchased by Tytus Działyński, the owner of the Kórnik estate, for his only son, Jan. In the early 1870s it became the exclusive property of Jan’s wife, Izabella (née Czartoryska). As a result of her efforts the building was restored by French archi-


There are few museums whose collections related to historic industries can compare with the holdings of the Museum in Opatówek. It is located in a classicist building from 1826 formerly housing a cloth factory. A cuttingedge facility for those times, the factory was built by Alfred Gottlieb Fiedler from Saxony. At its peak the thriving plant employed over 500 people working at 102 weaving looms. Resulting from the loss of demand in the market, during the First World War the plant was closed. This is one of the few European landmarks of industrial architecture of the early 19th century. The restored factory interiors hold a number of permanent exhibitions; some of these are particularly noteworthy. On the ground floor we can see a collection of the heaviest exhibits such as looms, machines used in the introductory stages of the fabric production process, steam machines and engines which were used for powering all appliances in the old factory. One of the most impressive collections is connected with pianos manufactured in the nearby town of Kalisz. Entitled “Polish pianos of the 19th century”, the exhibition displays over 50 grand pianos, as well as square, lyre-shaped, and upright pianos. Another exhibition devoted to “Kalisz Printing

Other exhibitions focus on the industry of Kalisz Region during the 19th century industrialization of Poland and on various branches of the textile industry, e.g. knitting.

cious stones, as well as jewellery, pottery and glassware. In addition to Polish artefacts there are also exhibits from the Orient and a number of European countries.

As early as 1253, when Poznań received its municipal rights, the hill towering over the nearby area was the seat of Przemysł I, the Duke of Wielkopolska who had built a residential tower here. The construction of the castle was initiated by King Przemysł II and completed by Casimir the Great, who had been a governor of Poznań before he became a monarch of Poland. From the 14th century the castle was a seat to a viceroy – the General Starost of Wielkopolska. Later it housed the municipal chancellery, the courts of law and the archive holding documents of the local nobility. During the partitions of Poland this was a seat of the high court of appeals, and later during 1869 - 1945 the National Archives. Today the buildings hold a museum. Currently work in progress aims at reconstructing the castle of Przemysł II which houses exhibition rooms and a scenic tower. In the museum we can see everyday items, both of a decorative and religious nature spanning various periods from the Middle Ages to present day. The holdings comprise over 11,000 artefacts, yet the permanent expositions display only a small part of the collection, including rare furniture, tapestries, and clocks, artefacts made of silver, tin, semi-pre-

Their estates also included Szamotuły, where they expanded an old castle formerly belonging to the Szamotulski family transforming it into a grand residence. After the Górka family line suddenly died out in the late 1500s, the castle deteriorated significantly. Then, as a result of alterations conducted in the 19th century it almost completely lost the features of its original architectural style. Only in 1976-89 was the castle thoroughly renovated and its Gothic appearance was restored. Today the castle, as well as the Gothic tower and a number of annex buildings constitute the museum. Inside the castle we can see typical

rooms of an aristocratic abode, with top class furniture, lush fabrics, carpets, Chinese and Western European porcelain, clocks, and sculptures, as well as decorative and everyday items. The display in the hall includes genealogical trees of the Szamotulski and Górka families, as well as the foundation plaque from 1518. The museum also contains a collection of icons, quite unique in Wielkopolska, and one of the largest in Poland. Its holdings include nearly 1,200 wooden icons, metal crucifixes and folding icons acquired from customs offices. The best preserved and the oldest building within the whole complex is the Gothic tower, called the tower of the Black Princess or Halszka’s tower. Originally a defensive structure, it was erected in the 1400s and ca. 1518 was adjusted for housing purposes. Its name makes a reference to the history of Halszka, a prisoner of the tower and a beautiful princess from Ostroh in Volhynia who was married to Łukasz III Górka, the Voivode of Poznań. Liberated 14 years later, after her husband died she became insane and died at the age of 43. Her tragic fate became a source of inspiration for numerous writers and poets. The exposition in Halszka’s Tower is devoted to the history of the town and its area. The western annex building holds an ethnographic exhibition. We can see here blacksmith’s and carpenter’s workshops, a weaving loom as well as a reconstructed rural-style room with a pantry and a display of household tools and items. Upstairs there is an exposition

of traditional garments from Szamotuły region which, in fact, are recognized as the most representative folk costume for Wielkopolska. The 19th century granary nearby holds an exposition of archaeological findings unearthed in Poland in the course of the construction works for the Yamal gas pipeline, accordingly named the Archaeology Museum of the Transit Gas Pipeline. Jaracz Museum of Milling and Water Equipment of Rural Industry 64-610 Rogoźno, Jaracz 45 tel./fax 67 261 05 15 open: /01.11 – 31.03/ Tuesday – Friday 9:00 – 15:00, Saturday – Sunday 11:00 – 15:00, /01.04 – 31.10/ Tuesday – Saturday 9:00 – 16:00, Sunday 11:00 – 17:00. This small village along the “wildest” river of Wielkopolska has an interesting museum. It was established in an area formerly occupied by a settlement surrounding the watermill on the Wełna. Here the river flows rapidly and its meanders are especially popular among water sports enthusiasts. A number of 19th century buildings were adapted to hold a museum. These include an industrial turbine-powered mill, stables and the miller’s house. Follow-



ing restoration works next to the mill there are two dams with overflow and movable weirs. Each year in March the Museum co-organizes an event called the National Winter Canoeing Rally along the Wełna and Finta rivers. In the museum there are three expositions connected with milling. The stables hold an exhibition entitled Traditional Grain Processing where we can find out about various issues connected with this type of activity, from the most distant times until the early 20th century. The oldest items on display are: saddle and rotating quern-stones, hand and foot operated processing tools which were used for cleaning millet grains; feed grinders operated by hand, horse power or mechanical power and used for preparing fodder. Among the exhibits we can see a huge feed grinder manufactured in Hipolit Cegielski Plant in Poznań. Visitors particularly like the replicas of rotating quernstones and hand-operated processing tools where it is possible to grind or press grains into flour or groats. The two-storey mill building holds an exhibition entitled “Industrial Milling Techniques” depicting the entire production cycle taking place in a mill. One of the floors holds a station of flour collecting and weighing, equipped with 19th century decimal balance scales and auxiliary tools such as trolleys and wooden shovels. Other artefacts include millstones, grinders, sieves, as well as scale models of watermills and powering appliances used in mills. The miller’s house holds an exhibition entitled The Social History of Milling, focusing on various economic and social aspects of this industry in Poland. Particularly impressive are the 1:40 scale models of windmills built by Feliks Klaczyński.

The oldest part of Wągrowiec features a number of historic religious landmarks: the Gothic parish church, the Baroque post-Cistercian church and monastery as well as the Classicist building of the former Evangelical church. Close by there is also the Abbot’s House from the late 1700s, which once was used by the local Cistercians, and today is home to the Regional Museum. Each year in July the museum organizes an event called the Wągrowiec Cistercian Festival. The museum exhibits illustrate the history, culture and ethnography of Wągrowiec and its area. We can see here various documents, photographs and tangible artefacts connected with events which took place from the mid-17th century until World War II. The most precious holdings include: the first edition (1599) of the Bible translated by Father Jakub Wujek who was born in Wągrowiec; and a privilege granted to Wągrowiec townspeople by King Jan Kazimierz in 1658. There are also documents of craft guilds from Wągrowiec and Gołańcz from the 17th to the 20th century; banners of various organizations; documents of local scout groups; collections of Polish medals and coins as well as a collection of matchbox labels from all over the world.

The biographical museum devoted to Stanisław Staszic (1755 – 1826) is located in a house formerly owned by the Staszic family who, in the part of Piła called Zamoście, also had their farming estate comprising living quarters as well as farm buildings: a barn, cowshed, and a sheepfold. The estate belonged to the Staszic family until the end of the 18th century. Stanisław Staszic was one of the most important figures in the history of Poland of the second half of the 18th and the early 19th century. He was a priest, a writer and a statesman; he published a number of works, e.g. “On the Origin of Carpathians and other Mountains and Flatlands of Poland” and “Warnings for Poland”. Currently the museum holdings comprise approximately 1,400 exhibits; in addition to items directly connected with Staszic, the museum collects artefacts depicting his times: portraits of important people, historical scenes, paintings of both towns and landmarks of architecture. Numerous manuscripts including original letters written by Staszic; official documents of various authorities of the Duchy of Warsaw and the Congress Kingdom of Poland with his signature; there is also a handwritten copy of “Remarks upon the Life of Jan Zamoyski”. The permanent exhibition entitled “Stanisław Staszic 1755-1826” is divided into four sections depicting: his youth and travels; his work in the Warsaw Society of Friends of Learning; his public work in the government of the Duchy of Warsaw and the Congress Kingdom of Poland; and his literary works and testament.

Museum of Rural Culture in Osiek nad Notecią, photo: Archive of the District Office in Piła open: /May – October/ Tuesday - Sunday 10:00 – 18:00 /December – April/ Monday - Friday 10:00 – 15:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays – according to prior phone appointment; November - closed. The village located at the edge of the Noteć river valley near Wyrzysk has an interesting open-air Museum of Rural Culture. During 1972-77 in this area excavations were conducted within old burying grounds of peoples belonging to the so-called Pomeranian Culture dated to ca. 500-300 BC. As a result an archaeological exposition was created here and in its vicinity the open-air museum was established. It holds a reconstruction of a ringshaped village and we can see here 25 genuine rural buildings which were brought from northern parts of Wielkopolska, including the border area between Wielkopolska and Pomerania (regions of Krajna, Pałuki and Notecka Primeval Forest). The exposition shows the living and working conditions in rural areas from the 19th century until World War II. The collections also include items related to people who were relocated here after WWII from Bukovina, the areas of Lviv and Vilnius. Additionally, we can see all the types of windmills typical for our region: Dutch, paltrock, and post mills. Three pavilions located on the outskirts of the reconstructed village hold archaeological exhibits illustrating the results of explorations conducted here in 1972 - 1977 by researchers from Bydgoszcz.
