Closed for renovations until December 2017. Primarily chronicling the 1918-191 Wielkopolska Uprising (though the exhibition starts at the time of partition) this museum occupies a rebuilt structure that once served as home to the Royal Guard. What the curators will set out following the renovations is anyone's guess (big changes are coming, apparently), but in its previous life the exhibition included a 1908 Maxim heavy machine gun sitting behind a row of sandbags, a copy of the uniform worn by the Uprising's commander-in-chief, as well as original state decorations awarded to him. Other points of interest included a replica banner flown on the night of the Uprising’s outbreak, photos of troop formations, and a series of postcards issued to commemorate the event.
