The exhibition is intended mainly for secondary-school pupils. Sacred and secular buildings are displayed in order to present some general principles of Gothic Architecture in Poland. The exposition also explains some basic architectural terms, such as wimperg, buttress, diaphragm and tracery. Moreover, the exhibition is supplemented by showcases containing handmade products connected with the late Middle Ages: weaponry (bombard, harquebus), manuscripts (the Balthasar Behem Codex) and models of architectural elements.

The State Archaeological Museum presents the history and culture of the inhabitants of the Polish lands, from the Stone Age to the times of the first Polish rulers.
