Muzeum Piernika is a museum located in medieval old town of Toruń, Poland, that is famous for its gingerbread. Visitors take part in an interactive show through which they are taught how to make a traditional gingerbread. The show consist of two parts - first visitors are shown how the dough was made in Middle Ages. Having prepared dough, everyone then makes their own gingerbread using traditional baking molds. Throughout the whole show visitors are guided by the master of bakery, a gingerbread witch and the craftsmen.
The museum is located on 9, Rabiańska Strett, in an early 19th-century granary, and visitors also participate in flour production using millstones. The museum forms part of the gingerbread tradition still living in town.

  • Very interesting, hands on experience far from stiffened lecturing. Maybe sometimes too direct but without breaking the boundaries of good taste. The interior decor and equipment carefully chosen. The form is close to a theatrical play. In two floors, one medieval manufacture and second 19 th century manufacturing. Course of gingerbread decoration, and overall immersion in the historical periods are a plus. Unfortunately it is quite “crowdy” and everyone should wear mask inside as closeness is inevitable. Great for children and parents. Sessions are bought out early before each day so make sure you buy it in advance as on the spot you may be too late. After the session you will get your self-made figurative gingerbread to place on your Christmas tree.
  • You need to reserve 1.5 h for visit there. We booked this visit online. There was either in Polish or English. A little funny, more for children.
