Museum

The museum offers an active form of education - learning the past from numerous, previously unknown aspects by means of modern technologies. We will trace the history of knightly orders, the Teutonic Order Knights in particular, on multimedia touch panels and projections (3D ones and the so-called augmented realities), starting from the Holy Land to the present, including castle models, animations of battles and siege machines, presentations of war techniques, strategies and arms, but also the secrets of castle cooking, handicraft and daily lives of castles and towns inhabitants - all presented in the context of genuine monuments from the history of Działdowo vicinities and the State of the Teutonic Order (as well as the collections of museums in Malbork, Olsztyn, Elbląg, Brodnica and other cities).

Historic town hall:
The first seat of Działdowo city administration. It was built in the 14th century and has been reconstructed many times since then. In 1656, during Polish-Swedish wars, the town hall was burnt by the Tatars from hetman Wincenty Gosiewski's division. The current baroque building was erected in 1796. Then, in 1922, it was rebuilt after having been destroyed during the I World War - new neo-renaissance gables, entrance from Władysław Jagiełło Street with a balcony and two pillars and a tower demolished during the war were added to the 17th-century remains. The clock inserted onto the tower comes from a Gdańsk workshop. Below the building five medieval basements, which have survived to date, can be found but they are closed to the public.
