"ABC of Gothic architecture" - a permanent exhibition at the Archaeological Museum
, 09:00 am - 4:00 pm (pn. - pt. 9:00 - 16:00, sb. nieczynne, nd. 10:00 - 16:00)
Państwowe Muzeum Archeologiczne, ul. Długa 52 (Arsenał) (map)

This is an educational exhibition aimed at those students and others who already have some historical knowledge.

Pictures a few meters high, placed on spatial constructions, give the exhibition the character of a late medieval town. Only objects from Polish lands are presented here. These include church buildings (e.g. Wroclaw Cathedral, the Church of the Virgin Mary in Ziębice and the Church of the Nicolaus in Brzeg) as well as the secular ones (e.g. Colegium Maius of the Krakow Academy, the Granary of Torun and the Gdańsk Crane).

Important elements of the exhibition are examples of urban fortifications: gates (Gdansk crane and the Cracow Gate from Szydłów), bastions (Paczków, Olkusz), the Barbakan of Cracow and fragment of the wall reconstructed from original gothic bricks. In the center of the exhibition, as in the middle of the medieval town, there is a market where residential buildings rise (a the house from Stargard Szczecinski, the Copernicus House from Toruń) and the magnificent Wroclaw Town Hall.

The presented buildings are carefully selected examples showing the general principles of Gothic architecture and explaining the basic architectural concepts such as wimperga, cling, blend and tracery.

An important addition to the exhibition is the collection of architectural details from Gothic buildings, originals and copies of the medieval relics: weapons (bombs, hooks), manuscripts (e.g. a copy of Baltazar Behem's codex) and a copy of the insignia of Kazimierz the Great.
