Żywe Muzeum Piernika reviews
One of the best monuments JPII in the world. Very funny place to everyone. You can learn about baking of the gingerbread more »
Quirky and fun and something a little different. We absolutely loved it. A little audience participation is required at the start during the demonstration which is a nice little ice breaker. more »
One of the best attractions in the city. While listening to the great guides and actors you (and your children) get to learn a lot about medieval Toruń. Later you get to prepare your own gingerbread - which is loads of fun, no matter your age ;)
Fun and interesting little museum where you get to make your own gingerbread while learning the history of gingerbread making in Toruń. Worth a visit.
