One of most interesting museums we had a chance to see. Excellent exhibition about Truso (ancient Viking city near Elbląg), original exhibition about history of Elbląg with some showpieces which can be see only here. Take a guided tour - you will learn a lot of interesting facts.

This museum was a nice surprise during our visit to Elbląg. The exhibitions and museography are of great quality. The staff is really friendly. They have a hands-on corner for kids and some of the exhibits have sample objects that people can touch. The hologram film was very interesting, but you need to know or read about the history of Elbląg since it is not narrated. Visually it is very effective. In summary, highly recommended.

Two buildings to visit, one rather boring on old pots and pans, although it counts some nice reconstructions of traditional rooms. The other more interesting about the archeology of the area, including an exhibition on Truso (viking town) and a rather strange exhibition on the destruction of the city, which is unfortunately only in Polish, but gives a good impression.
