The Bread and School Museum is not a typical museum. The exhibits are not displayed in show cases as in many other museums. No, here everything is easily accessible and visitors can actually handle and touch the interesting and unusual exhibits. The museum was established as a “labour of love” by its founder Piotr Makiewicz who had a great interest in the history of bread and bread-making. In 2000, Piotr opened the first Bread Museum in Poland. It displayed the machines and tools used in bread-making, which he had collected over many years, together with pictures, post cards and rare items closely linked with regional and German cultures. The motto of the museum is “experience and try out”, and visitors can do this on the guided tours and demonstrations when they can have a go at baking bread and learn how to form a “spitzel”.
In 2005 the School Museum was opened and here, visitors can take part in a lesson set in a classroom from the early 20th century. This is an exciting experience for all ages. It reminds older visitors of their own childhood and gives younger visitors the opportunity to experience life in earlier times.
The newest part of the museum is an alpine cabin built in traditional Goral style. In order to the make the cabin as authentic as possible, it was actually constructed by Gorals, who come from the mountaineous regions near the Polish-Slovakian border. After a guided tour, it is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy its traditional atmosphere and surroundings.
