Among the exhibits the most interesting relate to the prehistory-eg. Reconstruction of the mammoth skeleton or burial site. A good impression is also given to the part of the exhibition devoted to everyday life in the region with traditional country costumes and the décor of the chamber with interesting hardware.
Ciekawe miejsce, żeby zapoznać się z regionem, na mapie Gliwic nie ma wielu atrakcji, Zamek Piastowski jest jedną z najciekawszych, mile zaskoczenie że wstęp jest wolny, eksponaty są dobrze szczegółow... more »Interesting place to get acquainted with the region, on the map of Gliwice there are many attractions, Piast Castle is one of the most interesting, pleasantly surprised that admission is free, exhibits are well described in detail
Absolutely lovely place. Excursion isn't long (so you are not tired, but maybe not that full of information and impressions s you would like to be) but interesting. And nice museum of trains around. I would say this place is excellent example of polish museum system. If you are curious and like that topic of labor, underground and machinery - this is a place to visit!
One usually holds some kind of expectations from a visit in municipal, historically oriented, museum. Well, If you'd like to learn something about history and legacy of Gliwice; one of the oldest persisting settlement on this land, you should rather explore Wikipedia. First of all, the display items are very poor and lack any proper description. Most of the exhibits are or fake (e.g. poor copy of sarcophagus which tries to mimic the original presented in Wroclaw's National Museum) or displayed without any proper context (e.g. Mammoth's remains retrieved from old German Silesian Museum of Natural History). There are some interesting pieces there, like artefacts left by Lusatian culture, but staff working there have little to no guidance or understanding required to answer historical questions at all. In general, it is affordable and can be mildly interesting but do not expect much.
