Housed in a functional concrete carbuncle, this communist-era museum features numerous audio-visual presentations designed to appeal to the constant school trips that file through the doors, as well as archaeological relics dating back to the founding of the Polish state – that means lots of pots, vases, bowls, and daggers. Visitors must wait for a larger group to form, and are then ushered into a procession of three rooms. Inside each, they are first told to sit through a brief propaganda film (English, German, French, Polish versions all supposedly available) about the might of the Polish empire and Christian religion (with the "brave and just soldiers of the great King Boleslaus" pitted against "hordes of savage Pagans"), and then to peruse the display cabinets in orderly left-to-right fashion.
