Only recently the curators began to use modern means of exposure complementing traditional exhibitions and collections of exhibits. Especially when dealing with museums concerning history it's still quite unusual, but it certainly increases the attractiveness and digestibility of historical facts. History is no longer in such places a collection of pure facts. The creators of the Interactive Museum of the Teutonic State came to this assumption and as the name suggests the multimedial presentation is really strong here.
The museum is located in the historic town hall in Dzialdowo, being situated on the former border, a city which owes its origin and development to the Teutonic Order. After a recent renovation, some of the most representative hall rooms have been adapted for the purposes of exhibition and opened to the public in August 2013.
The museum is probably the first Polish attempt to present the fate of the Knights of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem on Prussian lands from the more objective side, not only from the point of view of the famous Grunwald battle. On many touch screens, we can trace the events from the history of the Order. We can also see real artifacts, but they are exclusively complement to the interactive exhibition. Also interesting is the ability to monitor some famous battles in 3D.
A real treat especially for history fans and all those who are intending to know more.
