Toruń Fortress being turned into museum

Currently under construction, the Toruń Fortress Museum will occupy the former army barracks and have a surface of over 2,000 sqm.

The goal of the museum is to depict the history of the city of Toruń’s fortifications all the way from the Middle Ages until the present.

“It will be one of its kind,” said Adam Kowalkowski of the Regional Museum in Toruń, adding that “establishing a museum of this kind and this size is without precedent in Poland.”

For his part, Mirosław Giętkowski of the Regional Museum in Toruń said that the museum has a lot of exhibits and photographs that will be put on the display in the Trouń Fortress Museum, alongside a broad exhibition of weaponry.

The Toruń Fortress Museum’s ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place in 2020, that is, on the centenary of Toruń returning to Poland.
