Toruń Gingerbread Museum


Not to be confused with the commercial Gingerbread Museum across town, this branch of the Toruń Regional Museum is housed in a former gingerbread factory and looks at the 600-year-long history of the city's favourite sweet. You also get the chance to make your own gingerbread using dough prepared to the original recipe.
