Overview

The Living Museum of Gingerbreads in Toruń is the first so interactive museum in Europe. It has existed since 2006 and it is located at 9 Rabiańska street, in the middle of the city center. It all takes place in the Medieval Bakery under the watchful eyes of Gingerbread Master. Visitors prepare dough by themselves and bake their own gingerbreads. Another floor is a manufacturing room from the early 20th century where we teach how to decorate gingerbreads with an icing. We welcome all those who want to learn about the tradition of baking gingerbreads in Toruń and its medieval culture. All of this happens in a fantastic atmosphere with a great deal of humor. The visit in our Museum is fun and joy for everyone, no matter what age you are.

Recommended for families with kids. Little bit boring if you expect a lot of history. You can make it your own gingerbread. Funny people with good sense of humour.

Loved this event. Participated in the translated Polish/English version and thoroughly enjoyed the interactive experience and the fun of making our own shortbread. Seeing both ancient and more recent ways of making gingerbread was a great experience. Fun, family orientated experience

Loved it and apparently so did everyone else. Ages ranged from 18 to 70 or so. We wish the ticket office was open earlier than 15 minutes before a tour, but perhaps we went during the shoulder season and that's how it is handled. Performers...More

Our booking was cancelled because preference for a German speaking group, but Rafael was very nice and offered a private translation. The activity with many kids and adolescents was fantastic, we really enjoyed every single moment, especially after cooking the special Gingerbread.
