Archeological Museum

Curious to see an Egyptian mummy named Hat? Then step right in. Poznań’s Archaelogy Museum contains a collection of 42,000 rare and mystifying objects that chart life in Ancient Egypt and prehistoric Poland. The first part of the museum takes you through the earliest settlements in the region, with life-sized figures as well as miniature dioramas depicting life from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. It’s here you’ll find everything from flints and urns to models of hairy men holding aloft dead rabbits. The other permanent exhibit, 'Death and Life in Ancient Egypt,' features 120 rare pieces – of note are the granite obelisk of Rameses II that stands in the courtyard outside, and the granite statue of the lion-headed god Sachmet. The section on death presents colourful coffins, guides to the afterlife titled ‘Book Of What Is On The Other Side’ and the mummified remains of Hat, a boy named Padiseb and sacred animals, including two cats, a falcon and a crocodile.

Admission 8/4zł, family ticket 20zł. Sat free. Guided tours by prior arrangement 70zł. Free audio guides avaliable in English.
