Overview
More
The seat of Szczecin's History Museum is a Gothic old town hall in the castle surroundings, located in the centre of the oldest part of the city – between the Hay Market and the New Market. During World War II the town hall shared the fate of the old town and was devastated again. Within the postwar reconstruction of the old town, as one of few historic buildings it was earmarked for rebuilding. Impressive interiors of the town hall house exhibitions of history and culture of Szczecin of times ranging from the oldest ages – illustrated by archaeological relics – through the times of duchy; through Swedish, Prussian and German periods, to the postwar times with, close to us, final years of the 20th century.

A museum that is worth a visit when you walk the red route as a resting place for tired feet. Mostly history from the Hanseatic period.

You can have a glimpse of the story of this city when visiting this museum. The only improvement would be to show the information in English, as it is only in Polish.

Curated in the style of Socialist realism -meaning in the dullest and loveless way possible - this museum fails to really convey the varied and interesting history of the town. A pity!

Not too much on display, and you will not get a very good insight in Szczecin history. The guards/guides who sits on their chairs in each floor are not very helpful, also they don't speak a word English and look rather grim. I've seen this...More

With captions only in Polish and German this museum still manages to give a good flavour of the history of Szczein to anglophones. The top floor gallery cover the post-1939 era and is perhaps the best place to start, and then work down to the...More

A good coverage of most of the city's history, except for almost total amnesia about the Communist era, which we found a feature of museums in Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary as well. Probably better than the national museum if you only want to do one...More

I took my children for a short visit - and they loved that. The exhibition wash´t too big, just enough to keep their attention.

Wonderful display and collection of Szczecin's history in a superb church building. We went on a Saturday and were pleasantly surprised to learn that museum are free on Saturdays! There was a choir practice happening while we were there and this added to our enjoyment!
