Lonely Planet review for House of Nicolaus Copernicus
Unfortunately it’s an institution suffering from an identity crisis, unsure of whether its exhibits should focus on old furniture, astronomy or Copernicus’ life story. As there’s only sporadic English captioning, amid scholarly doubt over whether the great man was really born in this house, the museum is less interesting than it should be. More engaging, if overpriced, is its short audiovisual presentation regarding Copernicus’ times in Toruń, with a model of the town during that period. There are soundtracks in several languages, English included.
