If you want to recall the importance of bread, and experience extraordinary pleasure of visiting Radzionkow, go to the Museum of Bread, School and Curiosities. The museum is one of the points at the Route of Technology Monuments of Silesian Province. The Museum is surrounded by areas belonging to industrial companies or large stores, which may be a bit surprising. But we are in the heart of Upper Silesia. So we are pleased that not only the business grows here, but also culture develops. The museum is proud of a great reputation and is very popular among school groups and individuals.
Entering the Museum we move back in time. Here you will meet guides in traditional rozbarskie costumes.In every room you will encounter history, and discover the old machinery, decorative and utilitarian furniture of various kinds. Most of the equipment is related with bakery and bakers in their daily work. Particularly impressive is the room adapted to the old bakery. An elegant counter, cupboards, tables and chairs impress with climate from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, however, the main attraction is undoubtedly the opportunity to bake your own rolls. This process fascinates both adults and children who visit the wonderful place.
The other rooms are equally fascinating: an old kitchen, a room with old furnaces and the Board School. The Museum also stores the relics of the old school - school uniforms and backpacks from the past, boards and teachers’ cathedral. Older visitors will have the opportunity to share memories. The younger - to compare the present with the past. That's not the end of entertainment. In the Museum you will have the opportunity to enjoy the biggest collection of typewriters and old computers.
The Museum was founded by a passionate and collector - Piotr Mankiewicz. Initially it meant to be in Bytom, in an old historic building. Unfortunately, decision of officials prevented the realization of this idea. Therefore, the Museum is housed in Radzionkow. It was opened on the 26 of April in 2000l.
