Museum of Toruń Gingerbread

The Museum of Toruń Gingerbread, a branch of the District Museum in Toruń, in the 19th c. gingerbread factory formerly owned by the Weese family, can be found at 4 Strumykowa St. It has taken three years to convert the building into a museum and prepare an exhibition space of some 1200 m2

The Museum of Toruń Gingerbread is likely to become a unique tourist attraction. Not only is it Poland’s largest museum dedicated to the history of gingerbread but it is designed to be modern and interactive and solely dedicated to the long-standing European tradition of gingerbread making.


Things to see and do in the museum

Once you enter the former Gustav Weese gingerbread factory you are offered a tour during which you can learn many secrets about Toruń gingerbread: the ingredients necessary to prepare the dough, the baking techniques used as well as the gingerbread trade across the centuries.       

The Museum of Toruń Gingerbread features three exhibition floors. There are many surprises to be found here and attractions to enjoy, including a film about katarzynka (Little Kate),the most famous Toruń gingerbread biscuit, and an exhibition of early gingerbread moulds and ovens. In addition you will find an interactive recipe book, a multi-media show on the modern techniques used in Toruń-based Fabryka Cukiernicza ‘Kopernik’ S.A., and a ‘meeting’ with our own ‘Gustav Weese’, the former factory owner.

You will also be invited to participate in a workshop giving you the hands-on experience of making your own gingerbread souvenir from dough prepared according to the original recipe, and then given a chance to taste this delicacy.

The exhibition tour allows you to become familiar with a wide variety of gingerbread biscuits, a unique collection of former packagings, as well as gingerbread production techniques both past and present.      

On your own you can visit a café-club arranged in the style of the 1970s.
