Information about the museum exhibitions:


  1. Archeological Collection,  ul. Mennica 2


In the Borderland Between Wielkopolska and Pomerania. Bydgoszcz and its environs since the dawn of time


The exhibition shows the earliest history of our region, from the beginning of settlement (ca. 12,000 – 10,000 B.C.) until the period of migration of the nations (5th-6th c.).  Presented artifacts will be coming from the regions of Krajna, Kuyavia and Pałuki, and the majority of them are in the collection of the Leon Wyczółkowski Regional Museum in Bydgoszcz. Remains of material culture over centuries will be shown in the exhibition, including various tools, decorations, weaponry, and everyday articles. Visitors will be able to trace back technological transitions and evolution of human thought, which gradually aimed at taming the environment and improvement of quality of life. Artifacts and numerous reconstructions will be presented over various epochs and prehistoric periods. In order to go on this “unique time travel,” the organizers plan to install modern forms of media, allowing the visitor to actively participate in touring the exhibition and broaden knowledge on any field of interest. On the other hand, various multimedia and interactive forms provide to visitors comfort in acceptance of messages and create an opportunity for active participation in a visit.


 In the City of Bydgost. Mysteries of life of early medieval residents of Bydgoszcz and its area


The exhibition presents material culture seen through many aspects of social and spiritual life of early medieval residents of Bydgoszcz and its area. The exhibition features tools, ornaments, weaponry and everyday articles.



  1. European Money Center, ul. Mennica 4

History and the present state of the Mill Island


The Mill Island, a river island surrounded by waters of the Brda River occupying a total area of 6.5 ha, due to its situation in the proximity of the Old Market Square, is a very unique site in Europe. In the past, this part of the city served as its business zone, featuring first its famous mint and later a milling industry center. Along with gradual diminishing of the industrial character of the Island, it has been transitioned to a venue of cultural events. These days, as a result of revitalization works carried out in the area, the Mill Island fulfills exclusively social, cultural, entertainment and tourist functions.


 Bydgoszcz Mint


It is a historical exhibition, comprising almost a hundred years of the history of the Bydgoszcz Mint. It presents the process of coin minting, blacksmith’s tools, crucibles, minting stamps, scales, and treasury box.

The basement presents an illustrated process of coin minting, based on replicas of stained glass windows from the mint of Constance. In addition, the exhibition presents a 100-ducat coin dating from 1621 in 3D technology, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful coins of Europe and new gold Zygmunt III Waza ducat from 1968.

The aim of this exhibition is to present monetary systems operating in Europe from the mid-18th century until the early to mid-19th century with an emphasis on the period of the Napoleonic Wars. It is also designed to present the economic functions of money in those times. The exhibition comprises coins and notes from France, Poland, Prussia, Austria, Russia, as well as coins circulating in the Free City of Danzig. The narrative opens with the French Revolution (1789) and Partitions of Poland (1772-1795) and concludes with the implementation of the Congress of Vienna treaty (1815). The central theme of the exhibition, though, is the period of the Duchy of Warsaw.
