The exhibition consists of two parts, the first of which is called 'Wehikuł Czasu - Człowiek i Pocisk' (English: 'Time Machine – The Human & The Bullet'). Set inside the brick tunnels of this 19th-century fortress, the exhibition recreates what the fort would have looked like when it was first built: complete with cannons, weaponry and lifelike mannequins in period uniform in active poses throughout the fort's atmospheric corridors. Scale models and pictures go a long way to illustrating what life must have been like defending such an outpost, although some English translations would be welcome for non-Polish visitors!
The second part of the exhibition is titled 'Z Energią' (English: 'With Energy'). Relating more to the centre's namesake, this does a good job of making sense of science in a fun manner that’s accessible to all ages. Featuring plenty of machines, computers and interactive gadgets, it encourages visitors to get hands-on, with the laws of physics and astronomy explained in an idiot-proof way. Opening hours for each part tend to change regularly so check their website.
