A unique museum, the only in this part of Europe, which presents the history of bread as well as the appliances and machines for its production.
The Museum collected a few thousand exhibits, including baking machines, appliances and tools coming from the 19th and 20th century, interior furnishing of residential and service rooms, archival documents, graphics, postcards, photographs. Visitors have a unique opportunity of baking bread with their own hands. Baking collection is supplemented with the reconstruction of the former school classroom together with the exhibition of equipment, instruments and teaching aids, as well as machines and office appliances.
The Industrial Revolution that took place a few centuries ago also affected the bread production. The pace of work contributed to the fact that there was no time to share it in the traditional manner. Almost one hundred years ago, American Otto Frederick Rohwedder, generally considered to be the inventor of the industrial sliced bread, patented a machine for automatic bread slicing. Nevertheless, problems with maintaining freshness of such bread discouraged him from starting the production on a larger scale. However, he resumed the concept and 82 years ago he designed a production line which first cut bread and then packed it tightly.
