About the museum
The Museum of the Diocese in Torun is located in the heart of the city in the Old Town. The unique building is an excellent example of masterful conservation work, carried out with the aim of preserving the beauty of this rich town house, built at the turn of the XVI century. The interior is adorned with beautiful restored fragments of renaissance and gothic polychrome-style art. The building contains elements of original style including a preserved gothic „sink” and a richly decorated wooden baroque ceiling, as well as a curious blend of modern and historical elements such as a glass elevator located in the old chimney shaft.
The permanent exhibition consists of a highly valuable collection of monuments from various churches of the diocese of Torun. The exhibition represents the heritage of Pomerania, contains beautiful examples of sacral art, ranging from the Gothic period to the XIX century and showcases exhibits from the museum of the Diocese in Pelplin. The collection also includes gothic chalices and monstrance pieces, polychrome sculptures and paintings, including the well-known work of Jerzy Kossak ‘Miracle on the Vistula’. The museum further holds a replica of the famous sculpture ‘The Beautiful Torunian Madonna’, the original of which was lost in the Second World War.
