Żywe Muzeum Piernika reviews
The Best tourist attraction I have ever experianced. It’s interactive, engaging and fun for people of all ages. Guides/actors are charismatic, always cheerful and helpful. Couldn’t recommend it more..... more »
Workshop for families only one piece of gingerbread allowed per person, even if there is enough pie for more, they throw it away, - it is a pity of waste. Gingerbread not for eating... 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.
