Wroclaw can be proud of two very original museums. Maybe they don’t make such amazing experience like Warsaw Uprising Museum or Schindler’s Factory in Krakow, so they won’t be interesting for every visitor, but those who like to widen their horizons, will be satisfied. However we believe that you don’t even expect how absorbing can be things which seems to be boring for a first glance.
