District Museum in Konin
ul. Muzealna 662-505 Konin
The District Museum in Konin is both a fascinating collection of interesting exhibitions and architectural objects, representing the diverse shape of this institution. The walls of the castle provide protection for architectural and historical exhibitions related to Konin and the region. In the museum there are unique collections of 19th and 20th century jewelery or a delightful collection of lamps. Noteworthy is also a gallery in which Polish painting is presented, and an unquestionable rarity for enthusiasts is a numismatic cabinet. The exhibitions also show the bones of extinct herbivores, such as mammoths, hairy rhinoceros or Merck rhinoceros. In the building of the classical granary there is a museum mascot, that is a forest elephant, who lived in this area about 100,000 years ago. This is where visitors can see one of the most complete and largest skeletons in Europe and a 1: 1 scale model that reproduces the likely appearance of an animal. In the museum there is also a reconstructed Polish manor house and an ethnographic open-air ethnographic museum, which is a cottage, barn and two windmills. Source: Regional Museum in Konin.
