The Granaries

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, group tours with English-speaking guide and temporary exhibitions are unavailable until further notice.

These three clustered granaries are Bydgoszcz's signature landmark, so signature that they found their way into the city's logo. Though the waterfront was once jam-packed with buildings of this type, these granaries are some of the only to have survived to today. Built in 1793-1800 by merchant Samuel Gotlob Engelmann, they were used to store grain until the 1950s, after which they were turned over to the Municipal Museum, which turned them into their Historical branch. The tour begins with a lift trip to the temporary exhibits on the top floor. From there make your way down the steps to find the story of Bydgoszcz laid out in an earnest but not too successful attempt at an interactive multimedia exhibit. It's small and lacks clarity, but might be of interest to those wanting to learn more of the local history.
