Gingerbread Museum in Torun
Gingerbread Museum is in Europe’s only real-live Gingerbread Museum – a fully functional 16th century gingerbread factory. Museum is an intriguing and magical place, filled with the history of Torun and the scent of the famous gingerbread (Pierniki), which teaches (through fun and interaction) traditional gingerbread baking, giving joy and laughter for all visitors.
Their live Gingerbread Museum came into being in Torun – city of Copernicus, also famed for its gingerbread. But seeing and tasting is not enough – it is also worthwhile participating in the process of making the aromatic dough. Add some honey, crushed cardamom, cloves and even a pinch of pepper all by yourself. Then knead the dough, roll it, put in into a beautifully ornamented form, and while waiting for your own gingerbread to bake in an antique oven, listen to some legends about Torun. Gingerbread Museum takes you to a 16th century gingerbread factory. After some short training with the gingerbread master you will receive a historic gingerbread-making certificate for making gingerbread according to some of the the finest 500 year old recipes. The Museum is an interactive method of getting to know the history of Torun and gingerbread-making in an exciting and amusing way, for both children and adults.
